Should I Replace My Water Heater?
On average, tank water heaters tend to last between 8 and 12 years. Around the 8-year mark, you might start to notice that your system isn’t quite working the way it used to. When that happens, it is difficult to determine whether repair or replacement is the better option. To help you determine the best course of action, our team has outlined a list of the signs that it is time to replace your system.
These signs include:
- You have had to repair your system multiple times in the last few years
- You never seem to have enough hot water
- Your water heater tank is leaking
- Your water is rusty or cloudy
- Your water heater is making excessive knocking sounds
Our team is here to carefully inspect your system and explain your options to you. If your system needs to be replaced, you can rest easy knowing we make the installation process easy as can be. We carry top-performing tank and tankless water heaters and guarantee that we can find the perfect system for your home.
Signs You Need Sewer Line Repair
Your sewer line is responsible for safely transferring wastewater away from your home. When it becomes damaged or broken, the damage to your property can be costly and overwhelming. That means it is a really good idea to become familiar with the signs that something is wrong with your sewer line.

- Your toilet is frequently clogged or overflowing
- One or more sinks in your home are clogged
- Your shower is clogged or draining very slowly
- There is a sewage gas odor coming from one or more of your drains

Things to Never Place in the Garbage Disposal
While garbage disposals are designed to take on a lot of kitchen waste, there are a number of things you should always refrain from placing inside of one. Certain items are known to damage garbage disposals or create major blockages in your drains, which can lead to serious sewer line problems in the future.
In order to avoid costly repairs, you should never put the following items down your garbage disposal:
- Fibrous vegetables such as celery and asparagus
- Fruit pits
- Corn husks
- Potato peels
- Egg shells
- Large amounts of coffee grounds
- Onion skins
- Trash such as paper towels, wrappers, and banana peels
- Chemical cleaners
If your garbage disposal becomes clogged or broken, Mark Johnson Plumbing is here to help. We have seen just about everything be placed down a garbage disposal and have the tools and expertise necessary to quickly solve the problem.
