Signs of a Bad Water Heater
Hot water heaters aren't made to last forever, and eventually, you're going to need to replace or repair a unit. It's important to recognize when your system is going bad, so you can avoid dealing with an emergency plumbing repair. Our water heater testing services can do that for you, but first, you should look for common signs of a failing hot water heater, including:
- Leaking from the water tank
- Rumbling noises or popping
- Cloudy looking water
- Rusty water
- No hot water
- Hot water runs out quickly
If you notice several of the above symptoms it's likely your hot water heater is failing and it needs to be repaired or replaced. We offer hot water heater replacement services and can evaluate your system and make the necessary changes to get it up and running again properly.
Servicing Every Type of Hot Water Heater
While most homeowners understand that their water heater provides them with a steady supply of hot water, what they may not realize is that there’s more to it than just that. Outside of the water heater itself, you also need to be worried about the power supply your system uses. Some of the varied options homeowners in the South Bay area may be dealing with include:
- Propane hot water heaters
- Electric hot water heaters
- Natural gas hot water heaters
Electric hot water heaters are the most common and are susceptible to electrical repair issues, including wiring repairs and damaged power sources. Natural gas and propane systems have a tendency to be more energy efficiency, however, they also open your home to the risk of gas leaks. Having a reliable water heater repair company is key to keeping your home safe. While you want someone who can deal with water leaks, you also need someone that can take care of secondary issues like electrical repairs and gas line replacements, both of which our plumbers at Miracle Plumbing Inc. can handle!

- Reduce system malfunctions
Give us a call for our testing or hot water heater service plans and we'll keep your heater in good operating order over time. With our help, your unit will last longer and perform as it was intended to, and maybe even save you some money over time.
The Benefits of a Water Heater Booster
Whether you have a gas, propane, or electric water heater, there might be times when you wish you had more hot water to work with. In instances like these, you have two solutions, you can replace your hot water heater with a larger unit, or you can consider a water heater booster installation. A booster is a highly useful device that can help your small heater act like a larger one, and it can even save you energy and space in your home. When we install a booster in a client's house, they experience most of the following benefits.
- More hot water
- Improved energy performance and added savings
- Reduce space requirements
- Reduced energy consumption
The booster will work alongside your standard hot water heater to give you access to more hot water without taking up much additional space. A modern booster can be turned off while on vacation to conserve power as well.
If you already have a booster installed in your home, we are also a water heater booster repair company and we service boosters as well. If you have any issues with your booster, we can inspect and repair the unit to get it running like it's supposed to be.
Water Heater Inspection and Testing
If you think that your hot water heater is failing, or you just purchased a home and aren't sure about the condition of your heater, it's important to work with a water heater inspection company to evaluate your system. We offer water heater testing services and will look at the overall condition of your heater to help you decide if your system needs any repairs or a full water heater replacement.
During testing, our experts will look at the following:
- Check for visible leaks
- Condition of the pressure relief valve
- Condition of temperature valve
- The heating element condition (for electric units)
- Condition of venting system (for gas models)
- Anode rod condition
- Check sediment levels
It makes no difference if you have a gas, propane, or electric water heater, we service and inspect each type at Miracle Plumbing Inc. We'll help identify any issues with your system so you'll know exactly what needs to be repaired.
In the event you find yourself in an emergency situation, we can help with that too! Our plumbers are available 24/7, providing you with emergency plumbing repairs when you need them most.
