Water Heater Repairs from Texas Master Plumber are backed by our “Loyalty Guarantee!” Our Houston plumbing customers have depended on the licensed and qualified Houston plumbing professionals at Texas Master Plumber since 2005.

The need for water heater repairs can be caused by several different elements within the residential plumbing and commercial plumbing systems in a building. When a water heater is installed, it begins to deteriorate almost immediately. Like humans, they were born to die, that is the laws of nature, specifically the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics, is true. Nothing lasts forever. Water heater repairs can range from a simple Temperature and Pressure relief valve replacement to removing the water heater and installing a new one.

From the day the water heater is installed, it heats the tank and the water stored inside. The tank will slightly expand and constrict during the heating and cooling process at which the temperature fluctuates by the thermostat settings. The glass lining inside the water heater begins to crack over time through slight defects and slowly lets water seep in between the glass lining and the steel tank. The cracks in the glass lining only get bigger and bigger until the tank rusts through and a begins to leak. A water heater installation is imminent.

Water Heater RepairsAnother factor to consider is that sediment begins to build up from the moment you start using your water heater. This sediment can reduce the efficiency of your water heater and can lead to costly repairs if not managed properly. Texas Master Plumber can help.

When a water heater malfunctions without a leaking tank, most of the time, water heater repairs are possible with the replacement of the malfunctioning part. On a gas water heater, the thermocouple is the part that tells the gas control valve that the pilot has a flame and it’s okay to fire the burner for operation. If the thermocouple is bad, the gas control valve will not receive the signal that there is a flame and will not turn the gas on to the burner. It will also turn the gas off to the pilot assembly that lights the burner.

Other water heater repairs can be a little more extensive. The gas control valve has a few responsibilities such as receiving the signal from the thermocouple and monitoring the temperature of the water inside the tank. The gas control valve has a probe that sticks into the tank to sense the temperature. With a traditional gas control valve, there is a spring inside it that expands and constricts passed a switch that turns the gas on to the burner. Sometimes, the spring becomes week and the temperature can fluctuate 20, 30 and even up to 40 degrees. Sometimes you will have extremely hot water that could potentially burn the skin, and sometimes you will have warm water that can seem to run out before you can get the soap out of your hair.
