Our emergency plumbers specialize in all water heaters, including tankless, gas, and electric water heaters.
You first get out of the shower and check the temperature knob on your hot water heater tank. You twist it up, but nothing happens… not even lukewarm water! What can be wrong? Is it time for a water heater replacement?
Like most people, you want hot water right away when you jump in the shower first thing in the morning or at night before going to bed. If your water heater isn’t working properly, this might not be possible! That’s because the device will have to heat water from cold temperatures before it can provide you with hot water.
One common sign that your water heater needs to be replaced is discolored water. If there are black or brown marks on your faucets or shower walls, it may be time for a replacement. Leaking hot water can also cause this problem if there isn’t enough pressure in the system to push the liquid through all of its lines. If you notice discolored water coming out of your faucets or shower heads when you turn on the hot water tap or it takes longer than usual for hot water to reach the shower head, contact Rooter Hero Plumbing immediately.
Leaks are one of the most common problems with water heaters. These can happen anywhere from the bottom of the tank to where it connects to the plumbing system. Your tank should be checked regularly for leaks by a professional plumber. This is especially true if you live in an older home or your water heater has been installed for over ten years. Water leaks can damage the floor and walls of your home and cause mold to grow throughout the house. Call us immediately if you notice standing puddles of water around the base of your water heater.

Is there an annoying knocking sound coming from your hot water heater tank? This could mean there’s something wrong with the heating element inside the tank or that it’s loose. Either way, it needs to be repaired as soon as possible because if left alone long enough, it could break completely.
Another common issue with older water heaters is that they don’t last very long anymore before they break down completely because they have reached their maximum efficiency level and no longer provide hot water as they used to when they were new.
