Fact number two about water heater repair is this: Sometimes water heater issues are not issues with the water heater but an issue with a change of schedule recently. If everyone in the family takes a shower in the morning now when in the past some took a shower at night, this may cause an over bearing demand for hot water in the morning. If this is the issue, there is no need for water heater repair, just an adjustment in the schedule of showers.

Fact number three about water heater repair is this: In most cases, the issue is the pilot light has gone out or the burner isn’t staying lit. There are instructions on the water heater on how to restart the pilot light, Follow this strictly and you should be able to get it going again. If the pilot or burner won’t stay lit, there are other issues in play.

Fact number four about water heater repair is this: When it is leaking at the base of the water heater, this is usually a sign that it likely needs to be replaced and is unable to be repaired – unless a pipe or connection is loose and water is simply flowing down the side of the unit to the floor.

Fact number five about water heater repair is this: There are several parts on a hot water heater that can be repaired and we know how to tell what needs to be done.
