Standard Water Heater
Pros – First, a standard water heaters are initially much more affordable then the tankless option. Most homes have a standard water heater with all the correct piping in place. This cuts down on the labor spent on replacing it. Most install take a few hours and the only equipment needed is the tank, gas flex and connection replace. Secondly, A standard water heater ensures instant hot water for up to an hour, until the tank is emptied. The duration does depend on the size of tank and the demand in the home.

If not properly maintained these minerals can cause buildup and the weight of the buildup can cause the inside tank to crack. Once the inside tank has cracked there is no way to replace it. If you have hard water, this can cause the buildup in the tank to happen faster.
