A leaky tank may be hinting you need to replace your water heater.
Not Enough Hot Water
Getting zero or not enough warm water out of your tap? If you use a gas water heater, there could be an issue with the pilot light.
If you’re not confident in how to figure this out, call us. We’ll handle the problem.
A lack of hot water may also be a sign that your water heater is failing and needs to be replaced.
Water is Too Hot or Too Cold
Your water heater may be undersized. We can help you determine how much you use and remedy the issue.
Other Water Heater Problems
These symptoms can mean that your water heater is about to break:
- Rumbling noises coming from the tank
- Dirty, milky-colored or rusty water

Since water heaters generally hold 50 gallons of water, a breakdown can lead to a catastrophic flood.

Howard from Service Experts came to fix our hot water heater. He walked us through ordering all the parts which were under warranty, he was punctual, and worked quickly. In addition to giving us back hot water he was so personable. He talked to my kids the whole time and pretended to be Olaf from Frozen while they pretended to be Anna and Elsa. Great plumber and great person! Thank you!
