Your water heater gives you the ability to enjoy hot water all over your home with no more effort than simply turning on a tap. However, like any other device in your home, your water heater can break down, causing headaches and frustration when you can’t get the warm water you need. A broken heater may not necessarily be incapable of producing hot water—it could simply produce lukewarm water or not enough hot water to meet your needs. When your heater stops working but is still reasonably within a serviceable lifespan, have the Modesto water heater repairs specialists at Mainline Plumbing Inc. get it working properly again.
Signs Your Water Heater Needs Repair
Is the water going cold halfway through your shower? Something might be wrong with your hot water heater. Usually it is fairly apparent when your water heater is having issues, but some of the signs can be a little bit more subtle. Be on the lookout for the following!
Consider scheduling a water heater repair service if you notice:
- Sudden spike in utility bill - if you notice a sudden spike in your gas or electric bill (depending on what type of water heater you have), this could potentially point to an issue with your water heater and how efficiently it's functioning. Additionally, you may see a spike in your water bill if there is a leak in your water heater tank.
- Leaky tank - if there is a noticeable leak in the storage tank of your water heater, replacement may be a better option. Depending on the severity of the leak and how old your water heater is, our team will guide you to make the best long-term decision.
- Rust colored water - if you notice rust-colored water coming out of your taps, there could potentially be rust inside the storage tank of your water heater. Additionally, if you notice sediment coming out of the tap you may need to have your water heater flushed. Give us a call so one of our professional plumbers can come take a look and accurately diagnose the issue at hand.
- Lack of hot water - if your hot water simply won't turn on, it's a good indication that your water heater is not functioning properly. Whether your water won't heat up at all or whether it won't stay hot for as long as you are used to, reach out to Mainline Plumbing, Inc. for service!

Can My Water Heater Be Fixed?
Water heaters generally have a service life of anywhere between 8 and 10 years, depending on how heavily you use your system, the condition of your water, and several other factors. If your water heater is older than 10 years, you may be better off simply replacing your water heater.
Our Modesto plumbers can help you with the following water heater repairs:
- Heating element replacement
- Electrical connection diagnosis and resolution
- Burner or pilot light repair or replacement
- Ignition repair
If your water heater is still within a reasonably expected lifespan, a repair may be the most cost-effective way to restore hot water service to your home. Many water heater repairs can be conducted fairly quickly and cost far less than completely replacing your water heater.
