Water Heater Repair
Has your hot water heater stopped working? Running out of hot water feels awful, but it doesn’t have to ruin your day. Whether you have a gas or an electric water heater, our plumbing service experts can perform water heater repair and get it fixed fast, so you can get on with your life.
Did you know that your water heater may give you other signs that there is a problem? You don’t have to let it die before you replace it. Here are just a few of the things that you can look for. When you see any of these signs, call us and we will try to get your water heater fixed before your hot water disappears entirely.
- You smell a bad odor. Most of the time, this smells like rotten eggs. If you have a gas water heater and the odor seems to be coming from it, it’s likely you have a gas leak or another problem. Get out of the house, just to be safe, and call us immediately. We’ll figure out what is going wrong with your gas water heater and get it fixed so you can have hot water safely again.
- Your hot water doesn’t last as long as it used to. If you can’t get through a shower without running out of hot water or you used to be able to shower while the dishwasher ran and you can’t anymore, it’s likely your water heater needs some TLC. We’ll come out and get it running again so you can live your life the way you’re used to living it.
- You notice rust or water near the bottom of your water heater. Both of these indicate that there is a leak somewhere in your heater. Even if the water isn’t leaking out, rust indicates that it has somehow gotten to a place where it doesn’t belong. We’ll come to you and sort out the problem before your leaky water heater causes a flood.
- Your water heater makes unusual noises. It’s not abnormal to hear your water heater when it’s heating up, whether it’s gas or electric. However, it is unusual to hear popping, clonking, or banging inside of it. If you hear these sounds (or any unusual noise coming from your water heater) call us and we’ll get to the bottom of the problem fast.

Call us at Cathedral Plumbing and we’ll determine the issue and get it fixed for you!
Most water heaters last an average of 10 or so years, but it really depends on if it’s been maintained and properly cared for. If your water heater is more than 12 years old, we recommend calling us at Cathedral Plumbing to take a look at it for you, before you’re out of hot water.
If your water heater is more than 12 years old, you should at least consider replacing it, but it depends on a number of factors. If you’ve been experiencing problems with your hot water heater, if you’ve been having to repair it on a regular basis, or if it’s not functioning as efficiently as it once was, it may be time for water heater replacement.
Flushing or partially draining your water heater on a regular basis (at least once per year) prevents sediment from building up in the tank. If sediment builds up, it could lead to rusty water, lower water pressure, burst pipes and more serious issues. Call us at Cathedral Plumbing if you haven’t flushed your water heater before, or if it’s been a while.
