Hot Water Heater Repair verses Replacement

multiple_water_heatersAs hot water heaters age, they break down.  One of the most common maintenance issues with water heaters is corrosion in the tank.  Failure to properly maintain a water heater can lead to the bottom of the tank rusting out.  There is no repair for this issue; your only option is to replace the entire unit.

Other items on the water heater, like a blow-off valve, can easily be replaced.  Find a trusted Water Heater Repair Specialist, like Atkins Plumbing, to inspect your water heater and discuss your options.  Often the decision is a matter of investment and the how long you can extend the life of your water heater.
