How Often Should I Tune-Up My Solar Water Heater?

Solar water heating systems require periodic inspections and routine maintenance to keep them operating efficiently. Experts recommend solar water heater tune-ups every 5 years by qualified technicians like those at Steve’s Plumbing & AC to address scaling and corrosion and to repair or replace components as needed.

The benefits of regular solar water heater tune-ups include:

  • Lower Energy Bills; your solar water heater will run more efficiently
  • Longer Equipment Life; your solar water heater will last longer
  • Warranty Protection; manufacturer warranties may require documented annual maintenance to uphold warranties

    Your Plumbing & AC Dream Team

    Audie was the representative from Steves Plumbing that came to our house. He was very professional and had a warm friendly demeanor. Audie was able to quickly diagnose the problem. He took his time to explain the situation, what needed to be done with our shower valve and explained everything in a way that we can easily understand it. He also noticed the brands on our fixtures in our bathroom (toilet, sink) and gave recommendations on what he believed would be more durable. We believed this is going above and beyond his duty. If we ever have any plumbing needs in the future, we will definitely call Steves Plumbing and specifically ask for Audie.

    One of the best plumbing experiences I’ve ever had. Prompt service. Very knowledgeable tech. Kaalai was super nice and repaired our leak in a professional manner. I would recommend Steve’s Plumbing to all my friends and neighbors.

    We have been a customer for almost 20 years. They do good, professional work with aloha. Response time has always been excellent. Today I broke a water pipe and they responded immediately. They sent VICTOR, who we HIGHLY RECOMMEND! WE WILL ALWAYS USE STEVE’S PLUMBING!

    – Diana M.

    I called Steve’s Plumbing on a Sunday morning and the service guy was here before noon without charging extra for Sunday! Billy fixed my clogged sink and spent over 3 hours clearing the clog that was way down the pipe. He was professional and explained everything to me. The price was reasonable considering all the work he did. I was very happy with the results.

    – Susie C.

    Victor overhauled our main property water shut off the box. A lot of corroded handles/valves that were not an easy DIY project. The office gave courtesy calls before he arrived on time. He was very patient in answering all of my many questions and concerns. Explained options to me & also introduced me to the “Ohana Membership” (be sure to get it). Upon completion, he was very thorough in showing me “what did what”. No more confusion or concerns. He even took time to answer other questions I had about a different “project”. He really takes pride in his work & it shows. Mahalo!
