Water Heater FAQs


Can Water Heaters Be Repaired?


Yes, many water heater problems are quickly and easily resolved by a licensed plumber. In certain cases, where major repairs would be needed to an older unit or the tank has rusted through, we may recommend water heater replacement.


How Much Does it Cost to Repair a Water Heater?


Professional services such as water heater repair can be pricey due to the training, licensure, and insurance required–but at The General, we keep our prices reasonable. With our up-front pricing, you’ll always know what to expect. Our quick, reliable repairs (done right the first time) also save you time and trouble!


Can I Shower if My Water Heater is Leaking?


A leaking water heater has the potential to flood your utility room and nearby areas, so it’s best to skip the shower and call an experienced plumber. Let our team quickly find the source of the leak and make repairs—and you’ll be taking that relaxing shower in no time.


What are the Signs of a Water Heater Going Bad?


Watch for these symptoms of a failing water heater:

  • Insufficient supply of hot water or hot water runs out mid-shower.
  • Water temperature is inconsistent.
  • Leaks.
  • Low water pressure.
  • Strange water heater noises.
  • Odorous or discolored water.
  • Old age. Water heaters can last 15 years if well maintained, so be sure to get all your plumbing and HVAC maintenance with our discounts. As water heaters approach 10-15 years, they can fail or flood, require expensive repairs, and/or deliver poor energy-efficiency.


What Would Cause a Hot Water Heater to Stop Working?


Issues such as a lack of power, interruption of the power or water supply, a malfunctioning thermostat or heating element, and more can lead to a water heater failing. You can check the basics, like your circuit breaker box. Otherwise, get in touch with our experts for water heater troubleshooting and plumbing repairs, day or night.
