Water Heater Services

Water heater leaks can originate from several areas and can occur for different reasons. Sometimes, these leaks will not affect the performance or function of the unit and people choose to wait to repair or replace the water heater. In any case, it is important to note that if not addressed immediately, a leaking water heater can cause extensive damage to your to your floors and sub-floors, and promote the growth of mold and mildew.

Depending on the type of water heater you have and where the leak is coming from, you will either need to repair or replace it. If the water heater is leaking from the bottom, this usually means there is a crack in the internal tank and your heater will need to be replaced. But if the leak comes from the top, the water heater can most often be repaired. This leak is usually caused by a fitting or a plumbing part that has malfunctioned.

In both cases, it is highly recommended that you call a professional plumber to deal with the problem. If your water heater is leaking, call 404-919-9339. Our technicians will determine why you water heater is leaking, how serious the problem is, and let you know exactly what is the best solution.

Identifying Water Heater Problems

Water heaters are probably the appliances we most take for granted. They sit in the attic, basement, or closet, never to be looked at or touched unless something goes wrong. Maybe the pilot won’t light because of a bad thermocouple, maybe the heating elements are burnt out, or maybe the unit has just exceeded its lifespan. Whether or not the water heater can be repaired or needs to be replaced really depends on what is specifically wrong with your unit.

No Hot Water - A lack of hot water in your home can be caused by dozens of things, many of which have nothing to do with the water heater at all (e.g. broken supply line, bad shower cartridge, etc). That being said, there are a few standard causes to look for in the event that your water is chilly. For electric units, the heating elements are the most common cause. Usually, they just need to be replaced after years of use. Heater thermostats also have a tendency to go out. For gas units, the pilot assembly, thermocouple, or gas supply may be the culprit. For both gas and electric units, it’s possible the valve on the outgoing hot water line is stuck shut (though that isn’t the most common issue you’ll find with units).

Unit Leaking Water - A leaking water heater can indicate any of several problems, ranging from loose valves to a corroded water tank. If the unit is leaking, then that could be a problem with the relief valve, a bad fitting, a clogged drain line in the overflow pan, or that your tank has rusted all the way through. Most of those are pretty simple issues to fix, but if excessive rust is the problem, then it will have to be replaced immediately.

Unit Making Noise - If your water heater is making strange “popping” noises, then chances are your unit is on its last leg. These noises are a sign that sediment has collected inside of the tank, resulting in excessive heat and deterioration of the unit. If you hear this noise in your home, then make sure you start planning for your water heater replacement now.
