Common Tankless Water Heater Issues
Nothing is perfect or maintenance-free, which includes tankless water heaters. One of the more common issues that users experience is a blast of cold water once they have gotten into a warm shower. This is a situation that occurs after someone else has just been using hot water and is not actually a flaw or problem with the system. You are using the end of the hot water left in the pipe from the other shower, then there is a momentary blast of cold water while the tankless heater turns back on to supply you with warm shower water. The solution is to wait just a minute or two for the cold blast to pass before jumping into the shower.
A legitimate issue will occur when a tankless water heater begins to accumulate a scale build-up. This is a product of hard water that is a combination of calcium and magnesium. The solution is to clean or flush the system every six months with a descaling agent. If this is not a task that you are capable of or want to tackle on your own, you can schedule a regular visit from a Parobek Plumbing plumber to descale and inspect your tankless water heater every six months. Call (512) 910-8123 to schedule that appointment and know that you never need to worry about any major maintenance issues.
A system overload is when there is too great a demand for hot water. Many systems will shut down when this occurs. Unless your hot water usage has increased greatly since your tankless water heater was installed, this issue is likely to be a flaw in the design and spec process for the water heater. You can eliminate this issue by reducing the demand on the water heater, or you can call (512) 910-8123 and set up an appointment for a Parobek Plumbing pro to come out and evaluate your tankless water heater. In some cases, the unit can be upgraded, or it might be more cost-effective to install another unit in your home to help meet the large demand for hot water. Your Parobek Plumbing plumber will be able to provide you with the best and most cost-effective solutions to increasing your hot water supply.
Other common issues pertain more to the mechanical function of your tankless water heater. These include issues with the gas supply, the ignitor, the ventilation and air supply for the unit and the wear to the heating unit. All of these are issues that can be evaluated and repaired by the factory-trained plumbers at Parobek Plumbing. Just give us a call at (512) 910-8123 and know that an experienced and skilled plumber will arrive shortly to provide you with an honest evaluation and written estimate to fix your water heater.
Why Are Tankless Water Heaters More Energy Efficient?
Tankless water heaters are far more efficient because they do not waste energy keeping water hot when there is no demand for it. Maintaining the temperature of a 50-gallon tank of water takes a lot of gas or electricity that is not needed with the in-demand style of water heaters. This represents a savings of about 15% in energy consumption.

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.
