Common Water Heater Problems

  • Does your water heater have a slower than usual recovery period?
  • Do you notice foul odors coming from your hot water?
  • Are you only getting lukewarm water, or perhaps no hot water at all?
  • Is low water pressure only affecting the hot water faucet?

Give us a call to have the problem inspected. We will identify the cause of the problem and make sure you receive the right solution. In most cases, a damaged or worn out element is to blame; we can easily replace those with extra parts from our mobile warehouse.

Undersized water heaters can also lead to a lack of hot water. This is why working with a trusted professional is so important when it comes to installing a new water heater. A licensed plumber will provide you with a water heater that is appropriately sized to meet your household’s hot water demands.

Customer Reviews

Josh is great! He is the one who usually comes to our house. He installed an overhead tank toilet, which is a tricky and time-consuming job. He... overcame many obstacles and stuck with it until the job was completed and done right. Price was also good. MasterTech has always taken care of all our needs in a prompt and professional manner. Emergency service has always been rapid too.read more

We had to have emergency service today, Saturday. A serviceman was here in less than an hour. The repairs were made quickly, the charge was not ... over the top, even though it was not a work day, and the individual was friendly and courteous. We have learned to expect this kind of service from Master Tech. Thank you.read more

I recommend MasterTech. They show up when they tell you they will show up. They provide a comprehensive estimate and also a good explanation of the... work that need to be done. Their work is good quality. They usually have the needed parts on their truck so they can do the task in a timely manner. They clean up the work area after the job is finished,read more

A great experience. First, on time, service tech was sent out when promised. Second, quick assessment of the problem (faulty sump pump). The tech... not only quickly replaced the pump, but he made an alteration that will make it easier whenever a replacement has to be made. Bottom line, a most professional service. Certainly would recommend Master Tech to folks needing their service.read more

MasterTech is so great to work with. They're quick, clean, do great work, and have fair pricing. But the best thing about MasterTech is their people.... Whoever is responsible for their human resources does a terrific job of selecting and/or training them. They're so friendly and provide excellent information and customer service. I highly recommend MasterTech!read more

Previously I had not been impressed with master tech. However, their technician Dillon not only fixed my emergency pipe break at 1am on a holiday but... also saved me as a customer. This was the best service I have ever had at my home. He arrived promptly at 1am. Provided a couple of options on how to fix my problem both in the short and long term and quickly made repairs. He also has provided advice on how to address issues related to the water damage caused by the busted pipe. This was one of the most positive bad situation we have had as homeowners. Thank you Dillon and mastertech.read more

I had to change my appointment at the last minute and they were able to accommodate my new availability without any hesitation. My tech was really... professional (Dillion). I got a call and a text to let me know he was on the way. He fixed my problem quickly and was so friendly. This is the second time that I have had to use a plumber and I will use Master Tech again since I have an old house with old plumbing.read more

If you are frequently calling for help with your water heater, you might be able to save more in the long run by replacing your old unit. A new, more efficient water heater will give you at least 8–12 years of reliable hot water and peace of mind. 

Water heater tanks that are starting to rust can burst when you least expect it. Don’t wait for an emergency to happen! Plan for replacement as soon as possible.

Trying to repeatedly repair an older water heater that is on its last legs (and no longer under warranty) may cost you more than having the unit replaced. If your water heater is over two decades old and it’s been experiencing frequent problems, it may be time to consider installing a new unit.
