Who does Phoenix water heater repair?

Are you looking for someone who can do water heater repair in Phoenix?

Rainforest Plumbing & Air does water heater repairs in Phoenix and the surrounding Arizona cities. If you need a water heater to be repaired or replaced, ask Rainforest Plumbing & Air.

Water heaters can be sturdy appliances for many years but eventually, all water heaters leak. The hard water in Arizona has a tendency to attack water heaters from the inside out. Once a water heater begins to leak from the tank, the only choice you have is to replace it.

Water heaters leak at the top too and this is a problem that can be solved quickly and easily. Be sure to repair water heaters that leak because the leak can become worse with time and eventually it can cause significant water damage.

There are many water heater problems that are repairable. If your water heater problem is not a leaking water heater, then you probably are wondering what problems occur to cause a water heater to stop working.

If your electric water heater is not heating, the most likely culprit is a bad heating element. A plumber can diagnose a bad water heater element and replace it. There is no need to replace your water heater when all that is needed is a heating element replacement. If the water heater element is working fine, be sure to check the water heater electrical breaker. Make sure it isn't tripped.

If you have a gas water heater, the most likely culprit is a bad thermocouple. With some simple tests, a qualified plumber can determine if you need a new thermocouple. This is also an inexpensive proposition.

Never let an unqualified plumber recommend a water heater replacement unless the unit is more than 5 years old or is leaking from the base. With the exception of a leaking tank, all other water heater problems can be solved with an inexpensive repair. Even water heaters more than 5 years can work perfectly fine. We’ve seen water heaters last for 10 years and sometimes longer.

Water heaters older than 5 years are approaching the end of their life cycle in most cases. Most residential water heaters fail after 5 to 6 years. Interestingly enough, this is the typical length of most manufacturers warranties. If your water heater is older than that, you've been blessed with extra time and you should be aware that the time for a replacement is coming. The only reason we might recommend a water heater replacement after 5 years is to prevent costly water damage from a water heater that leaks from the tank. If your water heater is in an area that isn’t susceptible to water damage, there is less risk in just waiting until it eventually fails.

Some water heater leaks are subtle and discovered quickly while others are sudden and unexpected. The worst thing that could happen is to have a high volume water leak from the water tank in the middle of the night or while you are away at work or on vacation. Leaking water heaters will continue to leak as long as they are connected to the city water pressure.

If you do discover a water heater leak, the first thing to do is to turn off the water inlet to the heater then connect a garden hose to it for drainage. Extend the hose to the driveway or yard. If you are having trouble with this step or you just want us to handle it, please give us a call. The sooner you call, the less water damage you may experience and the sooner you'll be up and running with a water heater in working order again.

We will appreciate your business by being up-front every step of the way. You should expect no surprises!
