Get Reliable Hot Water Again
An experienced technician can repair most systems quickly. He or she normally has 99 percent of whatever components they may need right with them when they show up, so there usually isn’t a need to go and come back later. And if you’re doing a replacement, that will take about three hours or so of the installer’s time to get finished.
Like lots of people, repair technicians choose to work during the typical work day, but they can make some exceptions when they have to.
Trouble Spots an Owner Sometimes Experiences
- The water smells funny
- It turns on and off too much
- It has a leak
- It won’t make enough hot water
- It’s creating lots of snapping sounds
There’s not too many elements to a conventional storage water heater.
There is a heating apparatus and a container to store the heated water.
If you see a leak from a plumbing connection, that is something that can be repaired, but if the tank itself is leaking, only a new tank will take care of that problem.
But apart from the tank, most other malfunctioning elements can be swapped out. Prevalent problem spots are the particular heating elements, the thermostat and the anticorrosion anode rod which actually is hooked up inside the tank.
Tiny substances in the water can accumulate in the bottom of the tank over time. These particles will normally burn off (and make a snapping sound inside your tank), but sometimes they don’t. A tank with an extreme amount of deposits at the bottom will not heat properly and may wind up wearing out faster than anticipated.

- It will generate more consistent and reliable hot water
