Installing a water heater requires technical experience, training, and extreme care. The last thing you need when water heater replacement is necesary is to worry about who is doing the job. At Detour Plumbing, our technicians are trusted throughout Santa Clarita and Southern California to provide professional water heater installation. Working with gas and electrical lines can be extremely dangerous. Our team is equipped to handle any issues that come up and deal with hot water tanks that are under pressure.

All work is compliant with the latest building codes and ensures your hot water heater will work for years to come. Our team is experienced and trusted at conventional water heater installation no matter the requirements of your home or business.
Gas Water Heater Installation
A gas water heater must be properly connected to your gas supply system. The job requires working with your gas and water lines. Most homeowners don’t have experience working with one or the other, let alone both. Our technicians have all the training and expertise needed to safely deal with each type of connection, place and install venting, properly align the appliance, and secure all piping to the appropriate lines. We’ll even test it for leaks, light the pilot light, and verify the water heater is functioning before we are done. It may seem like a delicate process, but the experts at Detour plumbing get it done right the first time.
Electric Water Heater Installation
Replacing an electric water heater involves safely disconnecting the old unit from your electrical system. While we do this, we’ll check for electrical issues such as faulty wiring and whether your electrical panel is rated to safely supply a new appliance. In addition to connecting the hot and cold water supply lines, it’s also necessary to properly wire the unit and ground the wiring. Turning the system on for the first time can be a challenge. Once the water heater is installed, we will turn on the power from the panel and bleed the hot water lines, which is necessary to do in the proper order because the electric elements must be submerged before they turn on; otherwise, they can catch fire and be destroyed.
