PDM Water Heater Replacement
What to do if your water heater leaks?

If you notice that your water heater is leaking, the first thing you should do is turn off the water. There is a dedicated shutoff valve on the pipes that you should be able to turn clockwise to shut off the water. If the valve is broken or you cannot find it, you can turn off the main water to your house. The water heater may continue to leak temporarily depending on where the leak is located.

PDM Plumbing, Heating & Cooling provides expert water heater repair and replacement services. We are happy to help with any leaks you may have and are available 24/7 for emergencies. Contact us today to speak with one of our highly trained team members!

When is it time to replace a water heater?

If you have been having issues with your water heater, there are a few signs that could indicate it is time to replace your unit:

  • Age - If your water heater is ten years old or more, it is probably time for a new one. Standard tank storage water heaters are built to last about ten years. To find out how old your water heater is, you can check the serial number. The second and third characters represent the year the unit was manufactured.
  • Noises - If your water heater is making banging or loud sounds, most likely sediment has built up at the bottom of the tank and water is having a hard time flowing through the pipes. You can try to drain your tank of the sediment, but if it has hardened you will most likely need a new one.
  • Leaks - If your water heater tank is leaking, you will probably need a replacement. Make sure that if there is a leak, it is not one of the connections or fittings to the tank, which are easy repairs.
What is the average cost to repair a water heater?

On average, you can expect to pay around $200 - $400 to repair a standard tank hot water heater. Some common repairs to water heaters include:

  • Replacing thermostat.
  • Replacing heating element.
  • Repair thermocouple.
  • Repair connections or fittings that could be leaking.
