Our Pasadena water heater repair service is called in for water heater repair so often that we have actually created a small sub team that handles it. Our Pasadena water heater repair has years of water heater repair service experience with conventional tank style systems and are all trained in the newest tankless water heater systems by Rinnai and Takagi. While some plumbing contractors in Pasadena will try to get you to upgrade your water heater no matter what is wrong with it, we'd rather that you get all of the use out of your current system that you can before going with something new.
Most tank style water heaters last about 10 to 11 years, a well-maintained heater can last upwards of 20 years. Keeping up on yearly maintenance, including sediment flushes, anode rod replacement and inlet line checks can make all the difference between an inefficient, rusted out tank and one that could last you another ten years.
Our Pasadena water heater repair specialists do a thorough inspection of your entire unit, including the T&P valve, all pipe solder joints, the thermostat, the tank body and the heating mechanism. If there are any problems that you weren't unaware of, we will let you know. Then we will give you an approximate time left on your tank. Some tanks will need to be replaced, there's just no other way about it. A tank with a hole rusted through it might be able to be patched for short-term use but one rust hole most likely means the entire inside of the tank is going to crack soon.
On the other hand, many tank style water heaters simply could use an insulator sleeve, pipe insulation and a thorough sediment flush to bring them back up to optimal working condition. This is far cheaper than purchasing an entirely new unit. Whatever the case, our Pasadena water heater repair associates will make sure you are fully aware of the situation so you can make an informed decision. Call us for a water heater inspection today!
