Signs You Need Water Heater Repair
When you turn your hot water tap on, and no hot water comes out, you probably assume that something is wrong with your water heater. However, there are other signs for which you can be on the lookout that indicate something is wrong before you have a full breakdown.
Additional symptoms of a water heater repair problem include:
- Your water doesn’t get as hot as it once did
- The water coming out is discolored
- Your water heater makes a lot of noise or shakes
- There is visible damage to your water heater or tank
- It takes longer for your water tank to fill and heat than it once did
- You see water pooling around the tank
If you notice any of these signs, it is a good idea to contact an experienced water heater repair plumber, like ours at All Valley Plumbing Service.
What Is the Average Lifespan of a Water Heater?
The lifespan of a water heater is determined by a few factors. First and foremost, the lifespan of a water heater is determined by what type of water heater it is.
A traditional tank water heater has an average lifespan of 10-15 years. A tankless water heater, on the other hand, can last as long as 25 years.
The lifespan of a water heater is determined by the following additional factors:
- How well it is maintained
- The quality of water
- And how frequently it is used
Water heaters can last a long time, but this does not mean that they are impervious to wear and tear. Keeping up on your water heater repairs can help you get the most out of your water heater. If you have any questions about whether or not it is time to replace your water heater, reach out to our plumbing professionals at All Valley Plumbing Service Inc. today.
What Are the Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater?
Many people call us and ask about tankless water heaters. As the name suggests, these water heaters provide instant hot water without needing a tank. They are an excellent option for homes with limited space, and in situations where you need consistent hot water in a specific location.
Reasons many people elect to install tankless water heaters include:
- Better energy efficiency than tank models
- Continuous hot water makes filling sinks and tubs easier
- Tankless models can last longer than traditional water heaters
- Less maintenance is required
Another benefit to tankless water heaters is that you can use multiple appliances that require hot water simultaneously. For example, you can take a shower while the laundry machine is running and have enough hot water for both.
You also eliminate the issue of flushing the toilet while someone gets scalded in the shower. Maintenance of tankless water heaters is still important however, and you can rely on All Valley Plumbing service if your tankless system needs repairs.
How Often Should I Flush My Water Heater?
Your water heater should be flushed at least once a year, whether you have either a traditional or tankless water heater. If not regularly flushed, your water heater can corrode more easily. The sediment and mineral in the water can build up, leading to wear on the tank and frequent clogs.
If you live in an area with particularly hard water, you may need to flush out your water heater more frequently. Turn to our skilled Mission Hills plumbers for water heater tank flushing and tankless water heating flushing service.
Regular maintenance and flushing of both tanks and tankless water heaters not only prolongs the lifespan of your system but also keeps you comfortable all year round.

What Is Considered a Water Heater Emergency?
Emergencies can include situations such as:
