Common Water Heater Issues
The most common and annoying issue with a water heater is that it no longer heats water. Some plumbers will look at their clients and automatically try to sell them on a new water heater and installation. And while some water heater issues do require replacement, at Parobek Plumbing our highly skilled professionals know that most issues can be repaired. Worn out heating elements, clogged gas lines, and malfunctioning electric supply can all result in no hot water, but these are all easy fixes. And the cost for these repairs is far less than a new water heater.
There are also some common issues that have nothing to do with the temperature of your water but are clearly signs that something is wrong. Water that has an odd or bad odor is a sign that there is bacteria in the water heater tank that is contaminating your water. In most cases, your Parobek Plumbing professional will be able to drain and clean the tank to resolve this issue. If you are finding that your hot water now looks brown, dingy, or rusty, this is an indication that something is breaking down inside the water heater tank. If the heating element is to blame, that can easily be replaced. But if the sediment and rust are from the tank itself wearing out, then a new water heater is the only real solution.
Regardless of the issue that you are experiencing, our plumber will evaluate your water heater and then provide you with a written estimate for any repairs that are needed. If your water heater is beyond repair, then we will give you an all-inclusive price quote to install a new water heater in your home. Our goal is always to provide you with as much information as possible so that you can make a well-informed choice to meet your needs and your budget.
The Different Types Of Water Heaters
As a full-service plumbing company, Parobek Plumbing technicians are trained to work on all types of water heaters. The two most common types are the traditional tank-style water heaters and the newer on-demand or tankless water heaters. Both types of water heaters can be operated with gas or electricity, and both use a heating element to heat your water. This means that both types of water heaters can easily be repaired, which is the most affordable solution.
What sets the two water heaters apart is very easy to see, just by looking at their names. The traditional water heater has a large tank that holds the heated water, while the tankless water heater does not. The tankless units only heat water on demand as it is running through the pipe to the sink, tub, or shower where you have turned on the hot water.
Each type of water heater has pros and cons that encompass features like the initial cost of the unit, the operating cost, and the functionality or amount of hot water it can produce. If you are interested in learning more about your options for a new water heater or an additional unit, any Parobek Plumbing representative can answer your questions and explain the benefits of each unit.

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.
