It's Important to Clear a Clogged Drain

Typical Signs That Your Water Heater Needs Repair

Knowing what to look for when it comes to your faulty water heater is an important factor when determining whether it’s time to repair your water heater or replace your water heater. Here are several indicators that your water heater just needs a simple repair:

If your water heater is relatively new and hasn't reached the end of its expected lifespan (typically around 8-12 years for tank heaters and longer for tankless models), it's usually cost-effective to repair rather than replace it.

When the problem is isolated to a specific component or part, such as a faulty thermostat, heating element, or pressure relief valve, targeted water heater repairs can often resolve the issue without the need for a full replacement.

Small leaks at fittings or connections may be repairable through the replacement of seals or tightening of connections.

If your water heater exhibits signs of reduced efficiency or unusual noises, sediment buildup in the tank may be the culprit. Flushing the tank to remove sediment is a water heater repair solution.

Issues with inconsistent water temperature may be related to a malfunctioning thermostat or heating element, both of which can typically be repaired.

If the problem is related to a lack of maintenance, such as cleaning or flushing the tank, performing these routine tasks can often restore the unit's efficiency.

When the cost of repairing the water heater is significantly lower than the cost of replacing it with a new unit, repair is usually the preferred option.

If your water heater is still under warranty, certain repairs may be covered, reducing your out-of-pocket expenses.

How Can We Help?

Water Heater Repair Services We Offer

A respectable plumber can offer you solutions to repair your existing water heater if the situation doesn’t warrant a full replacement.

Here are some of the common water heater repair services we offer:

Thermostat Replacement

When the thermostat malfunctions, it can result in water that is too hot or too cold. Replacing a faulty thermostat can restore proper temperature control.

Heating Element Replacement

Electric water heaters have heating elements that can wear out over time. If the water is not heating adequately, replacing the heating element may be necessary.

Anode Rod Replacement

Anode rods are sacrificial components that protect the tank from corrosion. When they become depleted, the tank is vulnerable to rust. Replacing the anode rod is a preventive repair.

Pressure Relief Valve Replacement

The pressure relief valve is a safety feature that prevents excessive pressure buildup in the tank. If it’s leaking or not functioning correctly, it should be replaced promptly.

Sediment Removal

Sediment buildup at the bottom of the tank can reduce efficiency and cause rumbling noises. Flushing the tank to remove sediment is a common maintenance and repair procedure.

Leak Repair

Leaks in the tank, valves, or connections should be addressed immediately. Depending on the severity, repairs can range from tightening connections to replacing faulty parts.

Pilot Light Repair

In gas water heaters, issues with the pilot light can result in a lack of hot water. Repairs may involve cleaning the pilot assembly or replacing the thermocouple.

Gas Valve Replacement

Malfunctioning gas valves can disrupt the gas supply to the water heater. Replacing a faulty gas valve is essential for safe and consistent operation.

Dip Tube Replacement

The dip tube directs incoming cold water to the bottom of the tank for heating. If it breaks or deteriorates, it can lead to tepid water temperatures.

Burner Cleaning and Inspection

Gas water heaters have burners that require periodic cleaning and inspection to ensure efficient operation.

Ignition System Repair

Issues with the ignition system in gas water heaters can prevent the unit from lighting. Repairs may involve cleaning or replacing ignition components.

Drain Valve Replacement

The drain valve at the bottom of the tank can develop leaks or become clogged.

Highly recommend them. There should be a 6th star.Update. We had some serious under-slab plumbing issues. They were able to accurately diagnose the issue where other companies had failed. They put everything back as it was, and even added some smart clean outs and tie-ins for future plans. The most impressive part was though was how much the hustled to get it all done. They even sent my wife flowers when they learned she had gone into labor. Absolutely amazing.Response from the ownerthank you Mr. bower, we really appreciate your business! JohnJohn ★★★★★ I just wanted to send you a big shout out for great service. Jimmy came out to look into my washing machine waste line which also has my drain from the AC unit and it had been slightly overflowing. I first used a safe drain opener to possibly open the line, but in addition wanted to have it looked at to make sure everything was okay. He did an outstanding job scoping the line and found just a small amount of sediment on the walls. I just wanted to let you know that I will highly recommend your company to anyone needing quality professional plumbing work done!JohnResponse from the ownerThank you so much for your business and your patience, it was a pleasure working for you, I will pass this letter on to jimmy.
