Hire a Handyman Zoo specialist to install a tank water heater you have already purchased.



There can be many reasons why you need a new water heater. Maybe your current heater is broken beyond repair or maybe you are moving into a brand new house where you need to install everything from scratch. If any of this sounds like your situation, book an appointment with a Handyman Zoo plumber.

Our plumbers will arrive on the same day if needed and install a new heater quickly and expertly for you for many years to enjoy. All Handyman Zoo plumbers are licensed and have many years of experience installing tankless and tank water heaters and electrical and gas water heaters.

Even though the quality of our installation service is exceptional keep in mind the following rules which will help your new heater to last longer:

  • Among many models available on the market, choose a well-insulated water heater. It’s more energy efficient.

  • When purchasing a new water heater make sure that you are choosing a size and type that fits best for your house and the lifestyles of your family. Is your hot water heater electric or natural gas? Do you need quick recovery after multiple showers?

  • Always keep your water heater at an even 120 degrees. This temperature does not allow harmful bacteria to grow there and at the same time keep your electricity bill low.

  • Make sure to replace the Sacrificial Anode Rod in a timely fashion to ensure most of the rod has not been consumed. If more than 6 inches of the rod are gone, do not delay calling a professional service to replace it. Otherwise, there is a high chance of corrosion.

  • From time to time, check on the pressure release valve. If it’s not operating correctly, your tank can get damaged under the wrong pressure.

My kitchen sink backed up and wouldn’t drain no matter what I did. I had used Handyman Zoo once before and so I decided to give them a call and see if they did plumbing work. Luckily for me they did and were able to send someone out to us. He was able to get the sink cleared almost immediately which was a huge relief. I don’t know what I’d do without them. If you need something done around your house I highly recommend giving them a call. Odds are they can handle it. They’re the absolute best.

I quickly wanted to thank Handyman Zoo for the excellent job they did power washing my home. We are in the process of selling and wanted to make everything look nice before we started doing showings. We had a really small window to get everything done in but Handyman Zoo was able to send someone out to us right away. The house looked amazing when they were finished and I’m highly satisfied with both the work and the price I paid for it. I would gladly recommend them.

I have been a long time customer of Handyman Zoo and I have used them for a variety of different projects both larger and small. They are always able to clearly communicate with me and their prices are some of the best in the area for this kind of work. I appreciate how straightforward and honest they always are. They are also incredibly respectful of both me and my home. I will be using this company for a long time to come. Thank you for all the wonderful work so far! Highly recommended.

I loved using Handyman Zoo. I had a highly positive experience with them. I needed several small things done around my house and unfortunately due to some personal mobility issues I am unable to do things like hanging photos or replacing lighting fixtures myself. It was such a relief to find a company that I can trust to do those kinds of things for me. My handyman was so polite and helpful. He did a wonderful job. Thank you so much for the help. I will definitely be using this company again.

I contacted Handyman Zoo about a couple of small things I needed help with around the house. They were able to send someone to me promptly. I had help within 24 hours. I was given a very honest and clear assessment of everything I needed done and what it would cost. The prices were more than reasonable so I decided to go ahead and have them take care of everything. Each project was done flawlessly. These guys are so knowledgeable and helpful. I live on my own and so I often have trouble finding help with small projects but I’m so glad that I have a company I can trust for this sort of thing.
