In colder months especially, a broken water heater can be devastating. If you are looking to get yours fixed quickly and accurately, but you are not sure what the process looks like, we are more than happy to illuminate the process for you. Our professionals at Fix the Drip! Plumbing Company, LLC know the ins and outs of any possible plumbing issue you can think of — and water heater repair is a very common issue that we can help you with.
- First, the issue will be diagnosed. This usually consists of checking the thermostat and gas valve to ensure everything is working properly. Most common issues are water leaks or a broken thermostat, which is why these are usually assessed first.
- Once the issue is found, we will recommend parts that may need to be replaced. Water heaters sadly do not last forever, so sometimes you will need a new one. It is recommended to replace your tank water heater every 10 years, or every 20 years for a tankless water heater.
It is also good practice to make note of the serial number of your machine to give to your plumber. That way they can easily find compatible parts that your tank requires to run properly. Water heater repair can be a stressful experience, but it is our job to try to make that process a lot easier for you. Reach out to us anytime to learn about your diagnostic options with water heater repair and get your home water supply working optimally again.
