Why Bradford White?

In our 10 years of plumbing we have had the opportunity to install and service a dozen different water heater brands. In that time, we have found Bradford White outranks all their competitors because of their:

Industry Leading Warranties

What happens when your five-year-old water heater suddenly shuts down on short notice, leaving you without any hot water?

If you’re covered by a warranty, it’s not a problem!

At Barnett Plumbing and Water Heaters, our water heaters are covered by some of the industry’s best warranty plans. Bradford White offers 6 years standard on tanks and parts, and we offer an additional 6 years on repair parts and workmanship. That means you’re covered no matter what happens.

For added peace of mind, we also offer an optional extended warranty that will cover a full 10 years of service, which is roughly the life of a water heater. If you want to know that your water heater is taken care of for the next decade, our 10-year warranties are hard to beat.


  • Bradford White 6 Year Tank and Parts Warranty

  • 6 Year Barnett Supplied Parts Warranty

  • 6 Year Barnett Workmanship Warranty


  • Bradford White Extended 10 Year Tank and Parts Warranty

  • 10 Year Extended Barnett Supplied Parts Warranty

  • 10 Year Extended Barnett Workmanship Warranty

Hybrid Water Heaters

Do you want a water heater that will lower your monthly utility bill and lower your environmental impact, without costing more to install than a regular water heater? Then you want a hybrid.

Hybrid water heaters combine the best parts of a standard tanked water heater with the efficiency of a heat pump system, making them 2-4 times more efficient than either electric or gas powered water heaters.

California also offers generous rebates for new installations, which means they typically cost about the same as a standard water heater to install, but significantly less to run.

Water Heater Repair Services in San Mateo

Our team is fully equipped and prepared to repair virtually any kind of water heater, from any major manufacturer. That includes gas water heaters, electric water heaters, and tankless water heaters.  During a free water heater inspection, our experts take a look at your system to identify potential issues and determine the cause. While most water heaters we see in the Tri-Valley area are 40 gallons, we can also service smaller point-of-use heaters, significantly larger-capacity water heaters, and even commercial water heaters.

Water heaters that are less than 5 years old and are experiencing issues lighting or remaining lit are typically still under parts warranty and have the possibility of being repaired. This repair process begins with diagnosis and can require several repair steps to identify the root issue. Bradford White replacement parts can be obtained same day, while other brands will usually warranty out replacement parts one at a time and take 3-5 business days to arrive.

Call today for your water heater repair needs and let one of our trained technicians begin the diagnosis process. Your plumber will be able to not only determine the source of any current issues with your water heater but also spot any upcoming issues before they develop into actual problems. That’s the Barnett Plumbing difference.

Why Barnett Plumbing?

“Our water heater broke and we contacted Barnett (Sunday evening).  They were out the next day to replace it.  As it turns out we were perfect candidates for the new hybrid water heater and with the huge rebate it was the same cost as installing a replacement water heater (75 gallon).  A temporary was installed on Monday.  They coordinated an electrician to come out to run the electrical and then install the new hybrid water heater.  It was a big job but seamless to us.  We were informed and communicated with every step of the way.  We were impressed with everyone we dealt with (office and the guys who came out).  We are lucky we chose them and will be our go-to plumber.  We highly recommend them.”
