Water Heater Repairs, Replacements + Maintenance
Dependable hot water from your favorite plumbing team!
Water heaters are incredibly important. It’s easy to overlook the fact that just a few generations ago, water heating involved an open flame and physical labor. Before the invention of the modern water heater in the late 1800s, heating water was an incredibly labor-intensive process — and warm baths were a luxury activity.
Fortunately, the team here at Roadrunner Plumbing is aware of how essential water heaters have become to our modern lives. That’s why we’re determined to help our community maintain that modern standard of living.

Water Heater Repair
Water heater repair is the bread and butter of our water heater services, and we’re the best around when it comes to providing it. To give our customers an idea of what might be happening when facing water heater issues, here are some of the most common repairs our plumbers find themselves performing in the field.
Gas Component Failures
Between the pilot light that remains lit, providing a constant source of fire to ignite the burners, and the burners themselves, gas components are some of the most likely elements to fail on any water heater.
Heating Element Issues
Without a reliable heat source, a water heater would be rendered useless, essentially turning into a water tank without a purpose. Both the heating elements and pilot light system that provide heat to the tank are some of the more common components our technicians find themselves repairing.
Pressure Relief Valve Problems
Hot water creates steam, which in an enclosed tank creates pressure, leading to serious issues if not maintained. The pressure relief is designed to automatically vent off excess pressure and needs to be replaced at the first signs of damage to prevent the tank from bursting and flooding your space.
Anode Rod Replacement
Anode rods are an important internal component of a hot water tank that are specially designed to prevent corrosive elements from damaging the inside of your tank. Over time, the rod corrodes which lowers its ability to protect the tank and requires replacement.
Leaks are a constant worry for any device that uses water, particularly a hot water tank. Generally, leaks occur at the joints and fittings where the tank is attached to the main line. Leaks can lower the efficiency of your tank, cause damage and raise your water bill.
While most city water is perfectly drinkable, that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything in it. All water contains microscopic minerals that can, over time, cling to the sides of your tank and accumulate. This sediment and accumulation is one of the most common causes of damage to a water tank and needs to be regularly removed to prevent damage.
Water Heater Maintenance
The best way to prevent these issues and ensure the lifespan of your water heater is by making sure that your water heater receives the maintenance it needs to continue doing its job.
It’s recommended by most professionals and water heater manufacturers that your tank be flushed once a year to prevent the harmful accumulation of particles and sediment.
