It can be very tricky to determine what is causing your water heater to fail. If you have no hot water or other issues with the unit, replacement is not always necessary. But to be sure of that fact, you need to call the factory trained professionals at Parobek Plumbing to evaluate your unit. Repairs are often far cheaper than replacing the unit, but not all plumbers are trained in accessing and repairing all brands and types of water heaters. The common solution among inexperienced plumbers is to replace the unit. To be sure you are getting the most honest information about the condition of your water heater and the possibility of repairing it, call 512-910-8123 to schedule an appointment with the Bastrop County’s most reputable and reliable plumbing company.

Common Water heater Issues
At Parobek, we pride ourselves on proving customers with very knowledgeable plumbers who can evaluate issues with all makes and models of water heaters. This expertise allows us to save our customers money in many situations. But we also want to help our customers to understand some of the issues that they could be facing from a faulty water heater.
No hot water at all could be the result of no electric or gas flow to the unit, or it could mean that the thermostat, thermocouple, or heating element in the water heater has failed. It could also indicate a tripped circuit breaker that is keeping an electric water heater from working or is not allowing the ignitor on a gas water heater to function. All of these issues can be fixed by a professional, and in most cases as soon as you approve the repair.
Not enough hot water could mean that any of the components mentioned above are beginning to fail or that the tank thermostat needs to be turned up to compensate for a colder climate. However, it can also mean that your household is using more hot water and that the water heater is just not large enough to meet the increased demand. In this case, a larger conventional water heater could be the solution. Or, you might want to consider a tankless water heater which supplies instant hot water on demand, and the supply is unlimited. Lower than normal water pressure can be the result of sediment or calcium build up in your piping
Other issues with your tank that are not impacting the water temperature can include bacteria in the tank causing a foul smell to the hot water, or a rusty color in the water which is due to sediment in the tank. Regular water heater maintenance and tank draining will help to eliminate these issues.
Leaking Water Heaters
Leaks near your water heater are also common as the tank and plumbing get older. Leaks at the top of the tank are most often loose fittings or a failing valve. But leaks near the bottom of the tank could be more serious. The drain valve is located at the bottom of the tank and could be the cause of the leak. If that is the case, the valve is easy to replace. But if water is seeping directly out of the tank at an area that looks rusty or corroded, then there is no professional way to repair that damage. A new water heater is the only solution.

One of our older, widower deacons in my church had a sewer backup into his house and he called me to help him. Parobek worked with me over the phone, got there in just a couple of hours, and were very communicative - calling to let me know progress, what they found, and got my "ok" as to price before performing any of the work. Super helpful customer service at their office and the guys doing the work were friendly, explanatory and thorough.
These guys are the only plumbers I will use anymore. While they are a little bit more expensive than many, you get what you pay for! They are extremely professional and upfront about what the job will cost. They always show up on time and do a great job. I recommend them for all your plumbing needs.
Called to schedule an appointment due to the faucet was not working in my kitchen. They were out the next morning as promised. They charge a service fee of $45 to diagnose the problem, is waived if you pay them to resolve the issue. Jason was professional, courteous and was very upfront and thorough with my options. He was able to diagnose and resolve the issue within just a few minutes. He could have easily overcharged me or told me I needed to replace my faucet. I really appreciate his integrity and will definitely call them for any future concerns.
