When you turn on your hot water, do you hear strange noises? Does your water get too hot? Or not as hot as it used to get? Maybe it just doesn’t heat at all. What if you’re taking a shower and the water pouring down on you has a nasty smell? Or is discolored? All of these are signs of different things that could be wrong with your water heater. Benchmark Plumbing and Rodding can help! Whether it’s burning sediment, a faulty thermostat, or an anode rod, we will find the source of the problem and fix it if it’s fixable. If it’s not, we can talk you through your options for a new water heater. Then, we’ll go through the whole installation process with you, from disconnecting the old unit to testing out the new one and cleaning up the work area.
Benchmark Plumbing and Rodding does all kinds of repairs to water heaters. We can replace the heating element, and fix a leaking valve. We have the experience to know what actually needs to get done and we do just that. If your problem disappears by having the burner assembly cleaned rather than repaired, that’s what happens. Maybe your tank needs draining to clear out sediment. We let you know exactly what the problem is and how we’re dealing with it.
Sometimes, it’s just time for a new water heater. The average lifespan of a conventional gas water heater is 8 to 12 years, and 10 to 15 years for an electric one. So maybe you really do need a new water heater. We can explain your choices so you make the best decision for your home and pocketbook. Whether it’s an electric water heater or a gas water heater, we can do all the work needed to get it up and running in your home.
