How many years do you need to replace a Hot Water Heater?

I can usually replace them in about an hour or so.

OH! You meant, how long will a water heater last?

Well, it depends. I replace them when:

The water heater starts leaking.


The water heater doesn't heat water anymore.

Depending on the quality of your unit and the water in your home, that can be from about 5 to 20 years.
