Tankless water heaters are great but they typically cost two to five times more to put one in a house that wasn't built for it. They frequently require gas and venting upgrades beyond what was installed for the tank. Then there is the need to flush and descale the tankless and perform maintenance every 500 hours of use. (That can vary according to how hard your water is) That is typically once a year for a family of 4-5. Even the best tankless water heaters are only able to increase the water temperature by 40 degrees at 12 gallons per minute. I love tankless but they come with a much higher cost and maintenance. Be prepared for all that or put in a Rheem Pro grade 50 gallon gas heater. For value and performance I am a fan of the PRO+G50-40N RH62

Typically $750 - $1,000 is an acceptable range, based on specs for the heater, location of the unit and fuel source, with gas being more expensive in most localities. Some models with higher performance or longer warranties coual add to those numbers.

Hey Bin,

If you havent done this before, then follow this, shutdown the Valve first then open the faucet from both sides upwards and downwards. If you still need more information you can possibly get all sort of problems you have at Best drain clog remover in Hawthorne, New Jersey.

Yeah, I agree with David, it actually depends on the faucet whether it has an alternator or not. Even I have also come across a similar problem once but thanks to the team of commercial plumbing service NJ who helped me fix the leak in the faucet. They save a lot of my money and time too.

Excellent question. Choosing the right Contractor is probably the most difficult part of the decision process, as you have to trust your instincts on complete strangers to work on your home. You increase your odds of a Contractor that will follow up to fix a problem by picking a Contractor that actually works out of a legitimate business  ( Brick and Mortor ) location rather than with a Contractor that operates out of their truck and or uses a PO box address. A Contractor in a brick and mortor location is easy to find and has made a long term commitment to their business.

Sounds like inadequate venting for the drain lines. Could have been build this way or maybe a clog has developed in the vent pipe. Such as birds or squrrels building a nest in the vent pipe up on the roof. You should hope that it's a clog, which can easily be removed. In order for proper vent pipes to be installed the walls will need to be opened up.

Norman, thank you so much for your question. Without having a better idea of how the vent pipe makes it to the roof (straight up or bends while making its way up) I can not accurately advise you on this. If you are in the Houston area please feel free to give us a call and we will get you set up with a free consultation. Do you have a tankless purchased or are you still looking to buy?

A great feature to have.  If you don’t have a shut off valve ask the plumber to install one.  If you leave on vacation or have a leak you can easily shut off the water to your condo. Check with the association first for the insurance Compamy also.  Billy Gavigan
