  • Fluctuating temperatures - If you're noticing the temperature of your water changing drastically, this is also a sign you may need a new water heater.
  • Discolored or smelly water - Smelly odors coming from your water may be a sign of rust or bacteria building up in your water heater.
  • Changing water pressure - Having a large build up of sediment in your water heater can lead to issues with maintaining water pressure.
  • Frequent repairs - If your water heater is constantly breaking down and requiring more repairs it may be a more cost-efficient option to consider a replacement.

What are the Signs You Need Water Heater Repair?

Recognizing the signs of a malfunctioning water heater can prevent bigger issues and costly repairs. 

Here are some common indicators that you may need water heater repair:

  • Inconsistent Water Temperature: If your water heater is unable to maintain a consistent temperature, fluctuating between hot and cold, it may need professional attention.
  • Low Hot Water Pressure: A noticeable drop in hot water pressure can indicate sediment build-up in the tank or pipes, which restricts water flow.
  • Strange Noises: Unusual sounds like banging, popping, or rumbling coming from the water heater are often caused by sediment accumulation at the bottom of the tank.
  • Discolored Water: Rusty or muddy water coming from the hot water tap suggests corrosion inside the tank, which could lead to leaks.
  • Water Leaks: Puddles or moisture around the base of the water heater indicate possible leaks from the tank or connections, requiring immediate repair to prevent water damage.
  • Age of the Water Heater: Most water heaters last about 8-12 years. If yours is older, it might be time for a replacement rather than a repair.
  • Foul Smell: A sulfur or rotten egg odor in the hot water can be a sign of bacterial growth inside the tank, necessitating a professional cleaning or repair.

Addressing these issues promptly can extend the life of your water heater and ensure a reliable supply of hot water.

  • "Hands down the best plumber in town"
    I've had problems as long as I've lived in this house - I've made calls no less than 3 times this year for backups with my plumbing and it turns out a tree root took out my plumbing and the guys from Johnny Doan Plumbing were finally able to find the problem and resolve it. I've had 3 other plumbers out here for this same problem - and none of them were able to fix it properly, so every other month, when I flushed the toilet, it would back up - and never knew why it kept happening. Glad to know there are pros that know what they are doing - hands down the best plumber in town.

  • "The most professional plumber that I have dealt with"

    My water heater wasn’t producing enough hot water. I was considering getting a tankless electrical water heater.

    They came out and examined my heater. He determined that it had been installed incorrectly. I thought I needed a new heater but I didn’t. It was a very simple fix and he saved me a lot of headache and money. This is the most professional plumber that I have dealt with and I highly recommend this company.

  • "High level of knowledge in plumbing"
    We had our kitchen remodeled by Home Depot and they subcontracted to Johnny Doan Plumbing and they did such a good job with the plumbing work that we called them back to provide a quote on several plumbing projects around our 1979 built house. When the guy came out to review the work to be performed, he was very professional and quickly provided a fair estimate on the same day. The guys that came out to do the work called ahead to let us know they were coming and they were both professional and courteous. The work they performed was high quality and showed their high level of knowledge in plumbing. I have to call out Tucker, Austin, and Kyle for the great work they did for us. I would highly recommend Johnny Doan Plumbing.

  • "He truly cares about his work and his customers"
    Jimmy came out to check out my water heater. He explained everything very thoroughly and clearly so that I could understand. This is a very professional company. They sent a professional to come and fix my issue for a very good price. The other companies didn’t even know what the issue was. I had spoken to 4 other plumbers before him and I highly recommend working with Johnny Doan Plumbing. He truly cares about his work and his customers.

  • "I had a lot of work for them to do and they did it all perfectly"
    These guys did a great job. I had a lot of work for them to do and they did it all perfectly. They cleaned up all their debris and trash and took it away, too. Will definitely hire them again.
