When Do I Need to Repair My Water Heater?

While you may want to write off a water heater problem as "not a big deal" or delay in getting the professional assistance you need, it's important to promptly address any issues you have. A delay or lack of proper repair can significantly reduce the lifespan of your water heater and lead to costly repairs in the future.

Signs that you should contact Mr. Rooter Plumbing for help include:

  • Insufficient hot water supply
  • Discolored water coming out of taps
  • Strange noises or banging coming from the water heater
  • Leaking or pooling of water around the unit
  • Unusual smells when hot water is turned on

Whether it's a faulty heating element, thermostat, or other issues, our team of certified plumbing technicians can diagnose and repair any problems you're having with your water heater quickly and efficiently.

Why Would My Hot Water Heater Suddenly Stop Working?

Your hot water heater can suddenly stop working for several reasons. Depending on your issue, you may not need to call us.

Here are a few reasons why your water heater stopped working, with a few troubleshooting tips:

  • Power Supply Issues. Check if the water heater is receiving power. Ensure that the circuit breaker hasn't tripped and that the heater's power switch is in the "on" position.
  • Pilot Light Problems (Gas Heaters). The pilot light may have gone out if you have a gas water heater. Follow the manufacturer's instructions to relight it safely.
  • Thermostat Settings. Verify that the thermostat on the water heater is set to the desired temperature. Sometimes, it may accidentally get adjusted.
  • Sediment Buildup. Over time, sediment can accumulate at the bottom of the tank, causing heating element issues. Flushing the tank to remove sediment can help improve heating efficiency.
  • Pressure Relief Valve. Check the pressure relief valve on the tank. If it's leaking, it’ll need replacement.
  • Water Leaks. Inspect the water heater for any visible leaks or dripping pipes. Leaks can lead to a loss of pressure and heating problems.
  • Age of the Water Heater. Consider the age of your water heater. If it's nearing the end of its expected lifespan (usually 8-12 years), it may be more cost-effective to replace it rather than repair it.
  • Professional Inspection. If you've checked the above factors and your water heater still isn't working, it's time to call a professional plumber. They can diagnose the issue accurately and provide the necessary repairs.

Remember that safety is paramount when dealing with water heaters, especially gas ones. If you need clarification on any troubleshooting steps or if there are gas-related concerns, call one of our licensed plumbers. It's always better to be safe than sorry.
