Water Heater Repair & Maintenance

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. A properly installed and maintained water heater will not only perform more efficiently and safely, but it will also last longer. 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

No hot water – this is often 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, the cause may be a more serious problem.

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, it could also be that your water heater is too small and does not hold enough hot water. We’d be happy to discuss your options for an upgrade.

Rusty water – rusty 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. On the other hand, your entire water heater may need to be replaced.

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.

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. If you have a leaky water heater, call a professional for diagnosis.
