Katy Water Heater Repair

Water Heater Replacement & New Installation

Your water heater is one of the most important plumbing components in your home. Whether or not you realize it, you rely on it every day for cooking, cleaning, bathing, and more. Without a functional water heater, your daily schedule can be severely disrupted. At Mercy Plumbing, we offer comprehensive water heater repair and installation.

Signs You Need Water Heater Repair

1. Some cold water in your hot shower - We may not think twice about a little bit of cold water in our hot shower, but it's a sign that there's a leak on the inside of your unit that's mixing incoming cold water with outgoing hot water.

2.Water that tastes or smells off - It's possible that the inside of your tank has coating that's peeling and contaminating your water. If you smell or taste something that's off contact our Katy water heater repair experts about inspecting your unit.

3. Low water pressure - If you're not getting the same water pressure from your hot water that you're used to, it's likely because of sediment build-up making your water harder and thus heavier to push out. Also listen for snapping or popping sounds as when the sediments interact with one another they may make these slight sounds.

4. A rusty anode rod - The sacrificial anode rod attracts the ionizing elements but every now and then call in our water heater repair experts to replace the rod so the corrosion doesn't spread to your tank.

When You Need Water Heater Replacement

Some of the most common reasons to replace your water heater include:

  • Age – Most traditional water heaters have a lifespan of 8-10 years
  • Rust – Rust may accumulate around the inlet or valves
  • Unusual noises – Some noises from the tank may indicate sediment buildup, but grinding and rumbling noises mean something more severe
  • Leaking – Leaks left unnoticed can cause significant water damage

Whenever water heaters experience frequent problems or are at least 10 years old, we typically recommend replacement. Although it can be a higher cost upfront, replacing your old or faulty water heater can save you money in the long run.

Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater

As the name suggests, tankless water heaters don’t heat and store water in tanks – instead, they heat the water on demand as it flows into your home. Consider these tankless water heater benefits:

  • More efficient
  • Consistent hot water
  • More space-efficient
  • Lasts longer
