Tankless Water Heaters vs. Tank Water Heaters
At Shark Plumbing Services, our experienced plumbers can service and install traditional tank-type water heaters or tankless water heaters.
Traditional tank water heaters store heated water in a large tank and use either gas or electricity to keep it warm and ready for use. When you need hot water, the water from the tank will start to deplete. Once it is fully used, the tank will have to refill and heat more water. These types of water heaters are often very bulky, expend a significant amount of energy, and require regular maintenance to ensure their longevity. The average tank water heater lasts about 10 to 15 years.
Tankless water heaters do not keep water in a tank. Instead, they provide an endless supply of hot water on demand heated by the system. Without a tank, tankless water heaters are a great space saver and expend significantly less energy than traditional tank water heaters. They also have a lifespan of 20 years or longer depending on how well they are maintained.
If you are the owner of an outdated tank water heater and want to upgrade to tankless or have an existing tankless water heater and need to ensure it runs optimally, let us know and we will determine the best course of action for you.

Water heaters only have one job—providing you with hot water. If they aren’t doing that, then something is very, very wrong. While the most obvious case of water heater trouble is only getting cold water, there are other signs that your water heater needs professional attention. Being aware of these signs and calling a professional right away is a must to ensure your heater gets a timely repair before things get worse or costlier.
Some of the common signs of water heater problems include:
- No running hot water
- Stranger banging noises coming from your water heater
- Water has an unpleasant smell or taste
- Hot water looks milky, rusty, or discolored
- Your water heater is leaking
- Water is excessively hot

When my toilet was overflowing, I called them for help. Their response was quick, and the plumber skillfully resolved the problem. They were courteous, professional, and took the time to explain what went wrong. The excellent service and fair pricing make them stand out from the rest.
