Maricopa County Home and Garden Show 2020


Last week we had the pleasure of spending a few days at the Maricopa County Home & Garden Show taking place at the Arizona State Fairgrounds in Phoenix. This was our second year attending this show and we once again had a great time and a lot of great conversations about our services and water heaters in general. Here is our booth from the show:

Of course, there were plenty of water heaters on display as well as our Grand Prize: A Taco on-demand circulation pump. Here is a little better look at it:

Grand Prize: A Taco on-demand circulation pump

For those of you that aren’t familiar with what a circulation pump does, they basically make sure that it doesn’t take forever to get hot water to your shower or sink by either pushing or pulling the hot water to the faucet, dependent on where they are located. By reducing the wait time, you are saved the annoyance of waiting, but, most importantly, you aren’t wasting water, which is good for the environment and your water bill.

These circulation pumps are either installed on the water heater itself or, as you can see above, under the sink in the bathroom that is the farthest from the water heater, where you would typically encounter a long wait time for hot water. The circulation pump that we were giving away pulls the hot water to the faucet when a button is pushed. The button is located right by the pump and you can see it on the top right of the cabinet. Some even have a remote button that be pushed for even easier use. For more information about circulation pumps, click here to check out our blog.

While the circulation pumps were certainly a hot topic at the show, we also talked to a lot of people about tankless water heaters. Tankless water heaters are great for several reasons including:

  • They essentially provide endless hot water (though it should be noted that it all depends on the amount of hot water being used, especially if several faucets are running at the same time). That’s because there is no storage tank to run out of hot water. The tankless water heaters use a burner assembly that heats the water as it is being used.
  • Due to their size, they can be placed in many locations that a traditional water heater can’t. So if you’re looking to free up some space, a tankless water heater might be an option for you.
  • They are more energy efficient than many storage-type water heaters. That’s because when the hot water isn’t being used, the water heater isn’t constantly heating water in the water heater itself.

For more information about tankless water heaters, go to our page here.

In conclusion, if you would like more information about circulation pumps or any other water heater products, feel free to give us a call 24/7 at 1-800-835-0077. One of our water heater experts will be happy to answer any question you may have or even set up an appointment for one of our technicians to come take a look and give you an estimate. Until next time, thanks for checking us out and we’ll see you at the next show!

40 gallon hot water heater replacement

Water Heaters Only, Inc Phoenix just replaced a 40 gallon leaking water heater!

Water Heaters Only, Inc Phoenix replaced a 40 gallon leaking water heater at a single family residence with a new water heater of the same size.

Our complete installation included installing earthquake strapping and bracing per the state earthquake requirements, installing a new water shut-off valve and hot and cold water lines, securing the vent, re-piping the gas line with a new flex line, and installing a drip leg/sediment trap and a shut-off valve.

We installed a drip pan with a drain line.  We then insulated the hot and cold water lines. Then we ran the temperature/ pressure overflow pipe to an approved location and insulate the valve and piping. Finally we removed the old water heater and hauled it away for disposal.

Our technician then lit the pilot on the water heater and made sure the burner turns on to heat the water. While the water heater is heating up, he cleaned up the area around the water heater and packed up his tools.

Finally, our technician went over all the aspects of the new water heater with the homeowner including how the unit operates, how our warranty works, why the WHO sticker on the water heater is so important and how long it will take for the unit to fully heat. A permit was obtained via the city and the inspection passed.


40 gallon hot water heater repair

Water Heaters Only, Inc. Phoenix just repaired a 40 gallon unit!

Water Heaters Only, Inc Phoenix completed a water heater repair for a 6 year old 40 gallon hot water heater that was not producing any hot water.

Upon arrival our technician diagnosed unit to have a failed pilot assembly, as the pilot would not hold a flame and the unit was unable to heat the water. He was able to open up the burner chamber, removed the failed pilot assembly, install the new pilot assembly, ensure the burner chamber was clear of any debris and looked in good working condition.

Our technician then resealed the burner chamber and light the pilot light. Once the pilot light was on, he set the temperature and watched to see the burner turn on. After the water heater has been heating up for a bit, he turned the temperature down to the lowest setting, the burner turned off as it should have, he then set the temperature at the recommended 120F degrees.

The homeowner checked the hot water in the house and they had nice hot flowing water again.

The repair happened on N 54th Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85043 and only cost $350!
