Need Emergency Plumbing Services?

Plumbing emergencies do not care about convenience. A clogged toilet, burst pipe, or leaking gas line can happen at any time of day. If you’re dealing with a plumbing emergency that just can’t wait, there’s only one Durham plumbing repair company to call.

When to call for emergency plumbing service:

  • Major Flooding
  • Interior Water Leaks
  • Clogged Drains or Toilets
  • Smell of Gas
  • Frozen Pipes
  • Wet Yard
  • No Hot Water

Water Heater Services

From the dishwasher and washing machine to your hot tub or a relaxing bath, your water heater is one of the hardest working appliances in your home. Over time, daily use and regular wear and tear can take their toll on these strong and sturdy systems. Our licensed plumbers can perform a wide range of water heater services, including maintenance, repairs, and replacements (including tankless water heaters).

We can also perform new installations and are happy to help you identify the best system for your needs. We will help you calculate the right-sized water heater so that you never have to experience a cold shower again. We will also help you select a system that offers the energy-efficient, cost-effective operation you desire so that those hot showers don’t burn a hole in your budget.

Common Reasons for Water Heater Repairs

  • Not enough hot water or none at all
  • Leaks
  • Unpleasant odors
  • Unusual noises
  • Discolored water

Upgrade to a Tankless/On-Demand Water Heater

tankless water heater

Also known as an instant water heater, tankless systems do not contain a storage tank. The water is sourced and heated at the same time — which is whenever you indicate that you need it. Benefits of installing a new tankless water heater in your home include:

  • Reduced Monthly Energy Costs
  • Longer Unit Life Span
  • No Longer Waiting for Hot Water

Why You’ll Love Us!

We had a small issue with a previous repair and Blanton’s honored their guarantee 100%. Sven and his trainee, Dev were fast, efficient, and as always, friendly and respectful of our home. Thank you again! Janet K.

Thank you, Dekota, and thank you Blanton's. Dekota was awesome! He walked through everything with me. I feel smarter, but not ready to be a plumber yet! Thank you for coming out the same day and giving me a fair price! I'll be requesting him for any future jobs! Cheryl D.

Nick and Jacob were awesome! They went above and beyond fixing our piping. Both were very knowledgeable about their job and kept us updated on what they were doing and explained to us. If we could give more stars we most definitely would. I highly recommend Blanton’s for plumbing and will be using them for electrical as well because of their quality of work. Dayna W.

I was very happy with the first-class service that Tim Hair, the plumbing technician provided from Blanton’s. He was very knowledgeable and his customer service was beyond what I could ever imagine!!! If I could give them more than 5 stars I would!!! Rochelle F.

I would definitely recommend Blanton’s! Service was great and they came so quick when I had a plumbing emergency. Thank you so much, Sven Headon and apprentice! I appreciate your kind and timely service! Lena G.
