When Water Heater Repairs Are Needed, We Are There

Not all hot water heaters need to be replaced, repairs from a skilled Denver water heater repair techniciancan be an excellent way to get the unit up and running again. Depending on the size of the problem and the age of the unit, sometimes it makes more sense to repair your hot water heater. High 5 Plumbing’s Denver plumbing experts offer honest assessments and can help you make an informed decision regarding whether you should repair or replace your hot water heater depending on what’s right for your unique situation.

Water Heater issues and what to be looking for:

  • Anode Rod Failure -

    This metal rod is normally made of aluminum or magnesium and remains as a point of contact with the water in your tank. This is so that it can attract the irons that would normally rust your tank. But,  after extended use, these rods will eventually become worn out and need to be replaced periodically.  If you do not replace it, you could  experience major problems with your water heater very quickly.


    The dip tube is used to vent all of the fresh water from the water line to the bottom of your tank so that it can warm faster. If you find that cold water is coming out of your faucet even when you are turning the hot knob, it is likely that you dip tube may be broken.

Signs Your Water Heater Is Failing

While the unexpected shock of a cold shower may be an obvious sign of water heater troubles, the truth is that many water heater issues begin small and can easily go unnoticed for weeks or even months before being addressed. Fortunately, many water heater problems can be detected early by regularly inspecting your unit and keeping an eye out for certain signs and symptoms.

Your water heater may be in need of repairs if you notice any of the following:

  • Odd Noises -
    If you notice strange popping, banging, or clanging noises coming from your unit, this could be an early indicator that your water heater is in need of repair.
  • Excessive condensation or water pooling around the base of your unit -
    Look for water that may be pooling around your water heater, this could mean that you have a leak and your unit needs repair as soon as possible. Due to the water that pools, if left unchecked it can cause water damage.
  • Rusty colored or odd smelling water -
    If your water is a red'ish brown'ish color or has a smell that is reminiscent of rotten eggs, this could be a build up of bacteria in your water heater. This could be a simple fix or your unit may need repair.
  • You run out of hot water regularly - 
    If your water heater is quickly running out of hot water, this could be because of sediment building up at the bottom of your water heater. When this happens it's because the sediment is taking up more space than the water in the tank, which means that your water tank will make less hot water.

Is Replacement Your Best Option?

Many modern water heaters last 10 to 15 years, depending on the quality of the unit, the amount of use, and how well maintained. A water heater that keeps shutting off, leaks, or isn't keeping at the right temperature all point to signs that it might be time for our Denver water heater installation or upgrade. If your water heater has reached the end of its lifespan, you should carefully consider its replacement.

Factors you should consider before purchasing a new water heater:

  • The type of unit
  • Your average hot water usage
  • The energy efficiency of the model
  • Your budget

You will also need to take into account what option will work best for you, such as a conventional heater or a tankless model. Tankless, or “demand” units are generally more energy efficient because they heat the water that you need, when you need it, instead of heating and storing gallons in a tank. This can save you money on your monthly utility bills in the long-run.

  • It felt like working with a friend of a friend, rather than a company.

    “I had a plumbing company come out to give me an estimate, but it was $700, which I knew was too much. I contacted High 5 Plumbing, and they gave me an estimate of $300. They were quick, professional, had great customer service before, during and after the appointment, and it felt like working with a friend of a friend, rather than a company. I'm really happy with High 5, and will definitely recommend them!”
