Causes of Water Heater Problems
A water heater that worked well when it was first purchased will have issues as it ages. The reason for this is that the age of a water heater can cause problems due to frequent use. Another problem that we have seen is due to home and business owners not having their units serviced from regularly.
Although it may seem tedious, maintenance visits are extremely beneficial to people for the following reasons:
- Ensures the water heater is working correctly and that there are no hidden complications
- A problem that is found will be taken care of right away instead of it worsening to the point that emergency services are required
How Long Do Units Typically Last?
The longevity of a unit depends upon a variety of factors, but a unit typically lasts between 10 to 15 years. General maintenance visits can help a water heater last for a long time. The quality of the water can be a determining factor, as well.
When to Replace Your Water Heater
The cost of the repair work must always be considered when looking at whether the price is worth it. There have been some cases where a customer has decided to purchase a new water heater because repairing the old one would be the same price. Or to provide an endless supply of hot water to your home, some choose to upgrade to a tankless water heater. Besides these reasons, consider the age of the water heater. A water heater that is a few years old will need to be flushed and have other minor repairs over time. These types of maintenance repairs are necessary for all units, and the water heater does not need to be replaced as a result of it.
Avoid Water Heater Problems in the Future
People who schedule annual maintenance visits with our technicians can greatly reduce the possibility of a problem arising in the future. We have a specific checklist that we consult each time we visit a water heater. We look for minor leaks and other little things to ensure that the unit is working properly. Any component that needs to be tuned and cleaned will be addressed accordingly.
Most of the problems we see, like a lack of hot water, can be prevented by maintenance visits. These visits can resolve small issues before becoming severe and disastrous. Lastly, water heater maintenance in Bastrop County can ensure your unit functions as it should all year round.

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.
