DIY water heater repair can be dangerous if you are not familiar with how a water heater works. Play it safe and hire a licensed plumber like Water Tight for water heater repair & maintenance.

Your water heater should be inspected and drained at least once a year. Depending on the number of people in your home, it’s likely you need service more often.
There are many signs that your water heater is malfunctioning. If you notice any of the following problems, schedule an appointment for water heater troubleshooting and repair.
Common Water Heater Problems
Whether you have a gas, electric, or tankless water heater, we can help you solve any type of problem. The most common water heater problems include:
No hot water – when your hot water goes out, it may be a simple fix. Before you call a plumber, check the pilot light on your water heater. Most times, the pilot light has gone out and that is the cause of no hot water. If the pilot light is on and you still have no hot water, or you can’t get the pilot to light, the cause may be a more serious problem that requires a professional to diagnose and fix.
Not enough hot water – if your hot water is running out too fast, the cause may be a malfunctioning thermostat. If you have a tank water heater, the problem could also be that your water heater is too small and does not hold enough hot water to meet the needs of your household. We’d be happy to discuss your options for an upgrade, call us!
Rusty water – rusty hot water is a clear sign that something is wrong with your water heater. It may be that the anode rod (an element that prevents rust) needs to be replaced. The problem could be more serious, though, and your entire water heater may need to be replaced. If your water is suddenly brown, call a licensed plumber to inspect your water heater.
Smelly water – if your water smells like rotten eggs, you need to call a plumber. Most likely, the bacteria in your tank (the kind of bacteria you want) is decaying and releasing hydrogen gases into your water. We’ll determine if your water heater is in fact the problem and what path forward is the best solution for your home and budget.
Water heater is leaking – this is by far the most common water heater problem. A leak can be caused by a number of things, including condensation buildup, a pressure buildup, tank corrosion, or a faulty drain valve. Whatever the cause, you will benefit from having your water heater inspected and serviced by a licensed professional.
