"Growing up in a family of small business owners and entrepreneurs, I saw what it took to build a business from the ground up. I always imagined owning my own business that was family run and operated. I've been so fortunate to have my brother join the team and to serve the community of Santa Cruz County together."

Signs That You Need Water Heater Repair

Check out this article to learn which signs indicate that your water heater needs repair and that you should contact a professional plumber in Santa Cruz.

Our expert plumbers recommend that you contact Expert Plumbing any time you experience the following:

Diminished Performance 

The most common sign of a failing water heater is a lack of sufficient hot water. If your water is recently only getting lukewarm or it’s taking longer than usual to get hot water from the tap, you should schedule a professional flushing of your water tank.

Strange Noises

Creaking, popping, or rumbling noises from your water heater is another sign that you need to contact the pros at Expert Plumbing. Those noises are generally caused by pockets of air in a sediment layer at the bottom of your tank that is boiling along with the water in your tank. Once again, a professional flushing of your water tank will usually resolve those issues.


No matter where the leak is coming from, the tank itself or the valve, you should immediately schedule an appointment with Expert Plumbing. If the leak is severe, use the water shut-off valve to temporarily fix the issue and then give us a call.
