Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take a water heater to heat up?
The general rule is that a water heater should fully heat up after about 45 minutes. The recovery time can vary across different models, depending on their capacity, and gas water heaters will typically recover quicker than electric.
How high should my water pressure be?
People often think that the higher the water pressure, the better. However, the legal limit for water pressure is normally 80 pounds per square inch. Any higher than that can cause strain on your plumbing fixtures, and certain appliances that use water, like dishwashers or washing machines, can easily be damaged.
