With the right maintenance and care, your home's hot water heater should last a long time. In general, a well-kempt water heater should last more than ten years. Like all things, however, nothing lasts forever. With time, your water heater will get to a point where it will need heavy maintenance or even replacement before your life is interrupted.
At Delk Plumbing, our team of experts can help repair or replace your home's water heater - whichever is best for your budget and your situation.
Is your family complaining that the hot water is out? Have you heard strange noises coming out of your water heater? If so, your water heater may be compromised. Here are a few of the most common signs you need to call Delk Plumbing for water heater repair services:
Your water heater is designed to give you hot water any time. That's why it has gallons of hot water inside. But if you notice your water going from hot to cold quickly without using the cold water, call Delk Plumbing. Your water heater is probably in need of repair.
When you get water out of the tap, it should be clear and colorless. If it's grey, brown, or rust-colored, chances are your water heater is to blame. Contaminated water is a big health issue, so be absolutely sure you don't drink it. Instead, call Delk Plumbing. Our team will be out to your house ASAP to help resolve the issue.
When you use your hot or cold water, you expect it to be hot or cold, not lukewarm or freezing. If you notice irregular water temperatures in your home, it should be a red flag. Call Delk Plumbing for a thorough, efficient water heater inspection.
While older water heaters will buzz occasionally, loud knocking and banging are not common for any water heater. If you hear unusual sounds from your water tank, it's time to call our team of plumbers in Hollywood, SC. Our specialists will inspect your system and provide detailed repair and replacement options for you to consider.
As Hollywood's top choice for plumbing services since 1978, we've learned a thing or two about drain cleaning over the years. To keep yourself educated and up-to-date, here are answers to some of the most common questions we're asked:
Q:How many times per year should I have my drains cleared?
A:That all depends on what's going down your drains and how often they're used. If you have a large family, leftover grease from food and hair from showers will cause clogs quickly. In this scenario, you should clear your drains often. If you live alone and don't use your kitchen or laundry drains often, you shouldn't have to clear them as frequently as a large family.
Q:More than one of my drains is moving slowly. What's happening?
A:When two or more drains are moving slowly, you may have a main sewer line problem. These clogs are often caused by wet wipes, tree roots, and kitchen grease.
Q:How do you clean clogged drains?
A:That depends on the type of drain that's clogged. You can clean sink drains with simple household items like vinegar and baking soda. Other drains, like bathtub drains, are best cleaned with a zip stick to remove hairballs. If you're unsure how to clean a clogged drain, it's always best to rely on professional plumbers like Delk Plumbing. Don't make the situation worse than it already is!

Rising rock artist Billy Tibbals shared his newest single "Hollywood Baby" via Silver Arrow Records. Produced by Chris Robinson (The Black Crowes), the single harkens back to rock 'n' roll before it became simply 'rock'; complete with driving pianos, swaggering guitar licks, and studio strings straight from Abbey Road, the song brings 70s glam into the 2020s.
Though he maintains an attitude and sonic palette with classic raucous acts like T-Rex, David Bowie, or even The Damned, Tibbals' vigor and charm steer him into his own lane. Perhaps he shares more in common with Destroyer's Dan Bejar, mining old tropes for a new era with a wink and a nudge.
The release follows Tibbals' debut single "Onwards and Upwards," written and recorded at home in his parents' garage at the height of lockdown times. Complementing the reflective sensibilities of the A-Side, "Lucy" tells a story of marital disputes between an estranged elderly couple. Tibbals will also be embarking on a massive North American tour in support of Mac Saturn later this month. Tour dates and tickets are available here.
Moving from London to Hollywood back in 2014, Billy Tibbals quickly found a love for the place with its many eccentricities and cast of Tinseltown oddballs. Combining the influence of his new found home with an eclectic taste in music, much of which was formed during his upbringing in London, Billy presents a unique and fantastical view of the world around us. Graduating from high school in the midst of a global pandemic, he holed up in his parents garage, spending countless hours composing songs that reflect his experiences growing up.

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are one of Hollywood's favourite couples, and regularly delight fans with insights into their wonderful relationship.The Canadian-American actor, known for his roles in Deadpool, Free Guy and The Proposal, married Gossip Girl actress Blake in 2012 ...
The Canadian-American actor, known for his roles in Deadpool, Free Guy and The Proposal, married Gossip Girl actress Blake in 2012 after the duo dated for a year.
WATCH: Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively's wonderful romance explained
As well as making headlines for their hilarious interactions on and off social media, the husband and wife are also a business running power couple. Ryan owns shares in products such as Aviation Gin and Mint Mobile, meanwhile Blake is the founder of Betty Buzz, a brand selling non-alcoholic mixers.
Ryan is also known for his and Rob McElhenney co-ownership of Wales' Wrexham AFC and their Disney+ documentary series Welcome to Wrexham. While promoting the show on Good Morning America the Deadpool star revealed how his wife had an important role in his decision to buy the club.
The Canadian and American pair met while filming for the superhero film Green Lantern in 2010 and developed a close friendship before they began seeing each other romantically.

"We were buddies for a long time, which I think is the best way to have a relationship," Ryan told Entertainment Weekly in a 2016 radio interview.
A year later the couple began dating, but only after they were reunited on a double date with an awkward twist. In the same radio interview, the Vancouver-born actor explained: "We were both single [and] we went on a double date – she was on a date with another guy and I was on a date with another girl."
"We were just like fireworks coming across," Ryan gushed, while joking "it was like the most awkward date" for the other two people involved because he and Blake ended up getting along so well.
The pair remain besotted with each other
Sparks definitely flew with this pair. Just six months after they started seeing each other, Ryan and Blake bought a $5million mansion in Pound Ridge, New York. The couple still live there today with their three children.
Ryan and Blake tied the knot at a private ceremony at the Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina in September 2012. While the notoriously private couple kept the details of their wedding a secret at the time, it was later revealed that their friend Florence Welch performed at the event.
However, the Florence + the Machine vocalist's show caused some drama for the otherwise happy pair when a sparkler singed a burn mark on the front of the actress' custom-made Marchesa wedding dress. Blake told Vogue in 2014 that at first the incident "was just so heartbreaking to me".
Thankfully a heart-warming moment with her husband cleared up any upset: "Later, my dress was hanging up and Ryan said, ‘Isn’t that beautiful?’ I said, ‘What?’ And he pointed to the burn. My heart just stopped, because it was such a sensitive little subject. And he said, ‘You’ll always remember that moment with Florence singing and the sparklers. You have that forever, right there, preserved.’ Now that’s my favorite part of the dress."
No stranger to a great dress, Blake wowed at the 2022 Met Gala
In 2020, Ryan explained how he and Blake were "deeply and unreservedly sorry" and regretted getting married at the plantation location because of its links with slavery. "What we saw at the time was a wedding venue on Pinterest," he said in the interview with Fast Company. "What we saw after was a place built upon devastating tragedy."
The couple also revealed they had secretly got married again at their New York state home.
Yes, after almost 11 years of marriage, the Hollywood sweethearts are still together, and the pair's love is still going very strong.
This was evident when Ryan got tearful while delivering a message of love for all his family when accepting his Icon Award at the 2022 People's Choice Awards.

"Thank you Blake and my three daughters," he said. "Blake and my girls, you are quite literally my heart, hope and happiness. I joke that my family exhausts me, but you give me more strength than any man can possibly deserve".
The Hollywood power couple currently have three daughters: James, eight, Inez, six, and Betty, three.
The duo's youngest daughter Betty made headlines in 2020 after a close friend of the family, Taylor Swift, named a character in her album folklore after her. Taylor had previously recorded with the stars' eldest daughter James for her song Gorgeous.
Blake announced in mid-September that the pair were expecting a fourth child when she showed up to 10th Annual Forbes Women's Power Summit red carpet proudly showing off her new baby bump. The couple and their children are over the moon about the news, as Ryan explained in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
Blake showed off her baby bump in again in November 2022
"We're very excited. You know, you'd have to be a moron to do this four times if you didn't like it," he said, before admitting: "It's going to be nuts but we're very excited."
In 2022, another rumour started surrounding Taylor Swift's friendship with fellow A-list stars regarding whether a character in her latest album Midnights might be a clue to Ryan and Blake's fourth child's name.
Blake and Ryan are both close friends with Taylor Swift
But beyond mentions or possible mentions in Taylor Swift songs, the Hollywood actors are careful to keep their children and family life out of the public eye. While Blake and Ryan are happy to share glimpses into their idyllic private life on social media from time to time – such as when the Free Guy actor gave everyone an insight into the family's chilled bedtime routine – the pair have been vocal about their dislike of paparazzi stalking their home for news.
Taking to Instagram following her baby announcement in September, Blake shared further photos of her pregnancy journey with the caption: "Here are photos of me pregnant in real life so the 11 guys waiting outside my home for a sighting will leave me alone. You freak me and my kids out.
Blake posted candid snaps of her pregnancy journey on Instagram
"Thanks to everyone else for all the love and respect and for continuing to unfollow accounts and publications who share photos of children. You have all the power against them. And thank you to the media who have a 'No Kids Policy'. You all make all the difference. Much love! Xxb."

In the past, many professional athletes have taken a step away from their sport to star in Hollywood. Whether it was Kyrie Irving in “Uncle Drew,” or Juancho Hernangomez and Anthony Edwards in “Hustle,” the trend has been set, especially by basketball players.
And it will continue, except this time it won’t be a professional athlete in the lead role, it’ll be a player from high school.
Current five-star point guard and University of Oregon commit Mookie Cook will be taking on the challenge in a new movie titled “Shooting Stars.”
Cook, who stands at 6-foot-7 and plays the small forward position at Arizona Compass Prep (AZ), will be playing a high school version of LeBron alongside Jett Howard, who will be casted as a high school version of another NBA legend, Carmelo Anthony. The movie, based on the 2009 Buzz Bissinger book of the same title, will be covering James and his friends as he rose to stardom at St. Vincent-St. Mary High School in Akron, Ohio.
But when first approached about the idea of acting as LeBron, Cook admits it caught him a little off guard.
“At first, I was confused,” Cook said. “Like how…why me?”
When Chris Robinson was chosen to direct the biopic about James, he desperately searched for someone who resembled James’ elite athleticism, size, charisma and playstyle.
After many weeks, the search was nearing a dead end. Robinson knew finding someone that met the criteria of an all-time great was going to be a difficult task. So he reached out to former Lehigh University basketball player Jerome Hipps to help lead the search.
Hipps traveled to many tournaments, and, fortunately for Robinson, he was able to lay eyes on Cook, who showed a “LeBron-ish” style of play and had a similar persona.
In an interview with The Athletic, Robinson said: “As soon as I saw him, I was like, ‘This is the dude…this is him.’”
Balancing school, his basketball career and filming for the movie was going to be a challenge for Cook. He would go to school for three hours, participate in a mandatory three hours on set, and then would use the time leftover to perfect his craft on the hardwood. Cook admits it was tough to balance both acting, school and ball, but he did the best he could.
“I had my (basketball) trainer there,” Cook said. “And then I had an acting coach for the first two weeks, so it wasn’t too bad.”
Cook admitted he hasn’t seen the movie yet, but is eagerly anticipating its release.
“I’m hearing a lot of buzz from a lot of people saying the movie is going to blow up,” Cooks said.
This weekend Cook made his debut at the 2023 Spalding Hoophall Classic, where he and his Arizona Compass Prep team showed off their elite offense. The Dragons cruised by Oak Hill Academy (VA) 55-35 on Sunday evening.
Mookie Cook is accustomed to strutting his basketball prowess during games, but in late 2023, he will get to show off a different set of skills on a much different stage: the big screen.

HOLLYWOOD, S.C. (WCBD) – A couple from Hollywood, South Carolina will celebrate 75 years of marriage this year. The special couple, both aged 96, still love, laugh, and sing their way through a lifelong marriage.
The price of gas was .23 a gallon 75 years ago. Jackie Robinson took to the field for the Brooklyn Dodgers, becoming the first African American to play in Major League Baseball – but Robinson was not the only one making moves.
Leroy Morrison was working on a home run of his own and focused on a different diamond.
“We went to a wedding one day. A friend had a wedding across the street. I see a girl, and she was dressed so pretty. I said I’m going to carry one of those girls home tonight, two sisters. I said one of y’all gotta go home with me,” he recalled.
“I said this is the girl, I’m gonna marry,” said Mr. Morrison. A feat that took nine months, and the ball was clearly in Ms. Wilhelmina’s court.
“I tell her she’s the one. She looked at me and she said, I don’t love you,” he remembered.
“I used to didn’t like him because he wore suspenders hanging behind him, untidy on him. I just didn’t like him, he wasn’t sharp enough for me. I was sharp. I had a wide-rim hat. I was sharp. I knew I was sharp,” said Mrs. Morrison.
Love triumphed over fashion woes, and on June 12, 1947, Leroy Morrison and Wilhelmina Roach became husband and wife.
“Marriage license was $5.00,” said Mr. Morrison. “My wedding dress cost me $16. I got off of King Street,” added Mrs. Morrison.
Both are now 96 years old with ten children and a long lineage that follows.
The Morrisons say the secret to a happy marriage for them: is faith, forgiveness, compromise, patience, and protecting peace.
“The secret is it’s just like a rubber band. You take the rubber band, the more you stretch it, the more it gives. Don’t stretch it too much, and it stays together,” said Mr. Morrison.
“I always tell people take it, whatever stress comes on, you have to take it to make it, and that’s the only way you can make it,” said Mrs. Morrison. “I didn’t have all good days, but I took the bad days and the good days the same, give and take. He is forgiving, and I was forgiving with him also, that’s what kept us together.”
They also say good meals helped as well. “She’s a good cook. She cooked the meals and baked the pies,” said Mr. Morrison.
Mr. Morrison, a retired shoe repairman and barber, and Mrs. Morrison a stay-at-home mom remain inseparable. “Never spent one night away. If he goes outside, and I don’t see him for five or ten minutes, I’m looking for him,” Mrs. Morrison said.
The Morrisons are considered community champions because they dedicated their lives to helping others, and often hosted neighborhood events to feed their Hollywood community.
Both now have health challenges and have 24-hour care from family members, but they continue to give back in whatever way they can.
Their message to young couples starting out: “I would tell them; every day is not going to be Sunday. Every day is not going to be good. Some days will be bad, but I think most of my days are good days, and go to church treat everybody right, all those people who treat you wrong, love them anyhow,” said Mr. Morrison.
After 75 years of marriage, Mrs. Morrison still sings her song of love for her groom mixed with a kiss, but with notes that render a cautionary tale.
“I love you, Roy. You better not let me catch you walking down lover’s lane with anyone else but me, because I love you. I love you. I love you, Roy,” she sang.
The family held a big celebration to mark the three-quarters of a century milestone in August.
Together, they have ten children, twenty-four grandchildren, sixty-five great-grands, twelve great great grands, and five bonus adopted children.
Happy 75th Anniversary Mr. and Mrs. Morrison!
