Water Heater Repair: The Most Common Problems We Fix

Experiencing issues with your water heater can be a significant inconvenience, affecting everything from your morning routine to your household chores. At Bow Tie Plumbing & Rooter, we understand the importance of a fully functional water heater. Our certified plumbers are skilled at diagnosing and fixing a wide range of water heater problems, ensuring your home remains comfortable and your daily routines undisturbed. Below, we detail the common water heater issues our team frequently resolves. If you encounter any of these problems, rest assured that our experienced plumbers can provide the professional assistance you need.

  • Inconsistent Water Temperature: You might notice that your water is too hot one moment and lukewarm the next. This inconsistency often stems from a malfunctioning thermostat or a build-up of sediment in the tank. Our plumbers can assess and rectify the issue, ensuring your water temperature remains steady.
  • Leaks Around the Water Heater: Leakage is not only wasteful but can also lead to property damage. Leaks might be due to loose connections, corrosion in the tank, or a failing pressure relief valve. We will identify the source of the leak and carry out the necessary repairs to prevent further damage.
  • Discolored Water: If you’re getting rusty or dark-colored water from your taps, the cause might be corrosion inside your water heater or the pipes leading to it. Our plumbers can determine the cause of discoloration and suggest the best course of action, including replacement if necessary.
  • Unusual Noises from the Tank: Popping, rumbling, or banging sounds usually indicate a buildup of sediment at the bottom of the tank. This can reduce your water heater’s efficiency and increase your energy bills. Our team can flush the system to remove the sediment and restore your water heater’s function.
  • Water Takes Too Long to Reheat: When your water heater takes longer than usual to heat water, it could be a sign of a failing heating element or a malfunctioning thermostat. Our knowledgeable plumbers can replace or repair these components to speed up your water heater’s recovery time.
  • Insufficient Hot Water: Running out of hot water faster than expected can indicate a problem with the heating element or that your water heater’s capacity no longer meets your household’s needs. We can help diagnose the issue and suggest solutions, such as repairing the element or upgrading to a larger unit.

Facing any of these water heater problems can be frustrating, but with Bow Tie Plumbing & Rooter, you don’t have to handle them alone. Our expert plumbers are here to provide professional, reliable service to get your water heater back in optimal condition. Contact us today at (909) 804-8000 for all your water heater repair needs.

Water Heater Installation and Replacement: How To Choose The Right Unit For Your Home

When it’s time to install a new water heater or replace an outdated unit, consider these essential factors to make an informed decision. Remember, our experienced plumbers are always ready to offer their expertise and assist you throughout the process.

  • Energy Efficiency: Look for water heaters with high energy efficiency ratings. An efficient unit will consume less energy to heat water, leading to lower utility bills. Consider models with ENERGY STAR® ratings for the best efficiency.
  • Fuel Type: The fuel source your water heater uses (gas, electricity, solar, etc.) will affect its operating costs and efficiency. Choose a fuel type that is readily available in your area and fits your budget and sustainability goals.
  • Size and Capacity: Selecting the right size is vital. Too small, and you’ll run out of hot water; too large, and you’ll waste energy heating water you don’t use. Consider your household’s peak water usage and choose a capacity that can meet your needs.
  • Type of Water Heater: Whether it’s a conventional storage tank, tankless, heat pump, or a solar water heater, each type has its pros and cons regarding efficiency, cost, and installation. Research or consult with our plumbers to identify which type will suit your home best.
  • Cost: Initial cost is not the only factor; consider lifetime operating costs too. More efficient units might have a higher upfront cost but can save you money in the long run through lower operating costs.
  • Warranty and Lifespan: A longer warranty often indicates a more durable unit. Consider models with extended warranty periods to ensure your investment is protected. Also, inquire about the expected lifespan of the unit to gauge future replacement needs.

Our team at Bow Tie Plumbing & Rooter is dedicated to helping you find the perfect water heater for your home. We offer expert advice, installation, and replacement services to ensure that your new water heater meets all your hot water needs efficiently and reliably.

We are remodeling two of our bathrooms, both of which are upstairs. Both vanities had granite tops, which were not removable and weighed 350+ pounds Billy, Jose, and their crew were somehow able to get the old one down stairs and the new one upstairs without incident. Jose did an excellent job installing the new vanity. It's so beautiful! They were very tidy and I so appreciate the work they always do. I highly, highly recommend Boe Tie Plumbing!

I had a faucet leak and knew there were potentially other issues contributing to that. Bow Tie requested a photo of the faucet and provided a quote range via text. Billy then accepted my phone call and was very patient talking through the potential issues. After speaking to him, I felt confident that Bow Tie was the right choice. Billy and Miguel came out and did all necessary repairs at a reasonable price. They took the time to answer all of my questions, showed me what to keep an eye on going forward, and gave me quotes and advice on other items I asked about. I will definitely recommend Bow Tie Plumbing to family and friends.
