Brentwood Water Heater Installation
If you were to cut a water heater in half, you would find that it looks something like this (electric on the left, gas on the right):
A gas water heater is nearly identical to an electric water heater, except that it does not contain the two heating elements, but instead has a gas burner at the bottom, with the chimney running up through the middle of the tank.
A Brentwood water heater consists of the following parts, as shown in the figure above:
- A heavy inner steel tank that holds the hot water
Typically, this tank holds 40 to 60 gallons. It has to be able to hold the pressure of a residential water system, which typically runs at 50 to 100 pounds per square inch (psi). The tank is tested to handle 300 psi. The steel tank normally has a bonded glass liner to keep rust out of the water.
- Insulation surrounding the tank
- A dip tube to let cold water into the tank
- A pipe to let hot water out of the tank
- A thermostat to control the temperature of the water inside the tank (Many electric water heaters have a separate thermostat on each element.)
- Heating elements to heat the water (These are the thick electric elements similar to those you see inside an electric oven.)
- A drain valve that allows you to drain the tank to replace the elements or move the tank
- A pressure relief valve (This is an important safety feature that keeps the tank from exploding.)
- A sacrificial anode rod to help keep the steel tank from corroding

Why Brentwood Should Hire Us For Their Water Heater Installation
Why is it Necessary?
The pipes in your plumbing system transport gallons of water each day for years on end. Wear and tear is inevitable. If your supply comes from a hard water reservoir then lime and mineral deposits accumulate on the inside of the pipes. Over the years, these deposits will start impairing the flow of water. You will find that water temperature is no longer consistent or that it is not adequately warm when your pipes have substantial mineral deposits.
Some pipes, such as galvanized ones, corrode over time. When this happens the water you get may be discolored or have a slightly metallic taste. Using discolored water on them can permanently stain your flooring, metal surfaces and even clothes. The corroded pipe may eventually develop holes through which water starts leaking out leaving you with very little water pressure in the taps. A bigger leak can even lead to significant water damage in your walls and floors if you do not stop it in time.
When your water pipes are degenerated to such an extent that such indications appear, it is time to check if your pipes need to be replaced. A professional plumber will be able to evaluate if he will need to re-pipe your entire home or replace just one section of the piping to sort out the problem.
A Worthwhile InvestmentMany homeowners hesitate to re-pipe their plumbing because this is such a costly affair. But leaving your damaged pipes as they are can turn out to be much more expensive in the long run. Remember that in many parts of the house, plumbing is concealed behind the wall. Leaky pipes in these areas can damage your wall. If there is any internal wiring in the area where the wall is damp, then you and your family are exposed to the risk of electric shocks. In some cases, a damaged pipe may appear to be quite sturdy from the outside. But when the water pressure is too much for the worn pipe to bear, it simply cracks.
What Brentwood Homeowners Are Saying ABout Us
"I had a 75 year old kitchen drain that had finally slowed down to the point to where I finally broke down and began looking for professional help. Found In Demand right here on Yelp and saw the nice collection of 5-star reviews by folks who do a lot of reviewing so it landed in my top 3. Checked out their website and saw an online form to schedule an appt. and decided this was the place for me. Filled out the form. And didn't here back by the next day so I used the phone (ugh :-). Jeff answered and set me up with someone to come by in the next 2 hours. His web form wasn't sending him email as it should have. I should have just called in the first place. Anyway, Emerson arrived right on time, took a look at the situation and then gave me my options. He said the galvanized pipe was probably so corroded the snaking would be a short-term fix and that I should probably replace the pipes with ABS. I agreed but it ain't happening this year. The clean-out cap was rusted tight in place so he offered to cut it off, replace it with a much more user friendly clean-out, and the do what he could with the snake and a high pressure flush. less than an hour later he was done and the drain is flowing just fine now. Emersone was very professional and neat. Cleaned up the whole area after he was done. Bill came to $185 which seemed totally fair to me. Yes I would recommend them again (but call, don't use the web-form:-) ). Oh and another plus... They take Amex so I got miles."
