Tankless Water Heater Repair
What should I do if my water heater pilot light keeps going out?

If your water heater pilot light keeps going out, it may indicate a problem with the thermocouple, gas supply, or ventilation. Start by ensuring the gas supply valve is fully open and the area around the water heater is well-ventilated. Next, try relighting the pilot light following the manufacturer's instructions. If the pilot light continues to go out, it's best to have a professional plumber inspect the water heater to diagnose and address any underlying issues causing the problem.

What Are Signs My Water Heater Needs Repair?

Recognizing the early warnings of a water heater issue can save you from that unexpected cold shower and other inconveniences. Here are some common signs that your water heater may need repair:

  • Inconsistent Water Temperature - If you notice fluctuations in water temperature, with water suddenly turning cold when it should be hot, it's a clear indicator that your water heater is struggling.
  • Reduced Hot Water Supply - A decrease in the amount of hot water available for daily use can signal an underlying problem. This can be particularly frustrating when multiple people in your household need hot water simultaneously.
  • Strange Noises - Unusual sounds such as popping, banging, or hissing coming from your water heater may indicate sediment buildup or other issues within the tank.
  • Leaking Water - Any visible leaks around your water heater should be addressed immediately. Even small leaks can lead to significant water damage and higher utility bills.
  • Rusty Water - If you're noticing metallic or rust-colored water coming out of your hot tap only, the metal pole inside your water heater could be damaged and need replacing.

If you notice any of these, it's vital you promptly contact an expert plumber to take a look and make any needed repairs. It just so happens, we know one we can recommend.
