St. Louis Water Heater Repair and Replacement
It’s always best to call Armstrong Plumbing instead of trying to figure out the water heater problem yourself. But there may be some things to do before you pick up the phone:
- Electric Water Heaters: Ensure the breaker that services the water heater has not tripped. If that doesn’t solve the problem, open the panel on the outside of the tank and hit the “reset” button.
- Gas Water Heaters: These are a bit more challenging, but you can check the pilot light to see if it is still lit. If it is not, turn the gas off as soon as you can.

What Causes Water Heater Problems
As water heaters get used, equipment can fail over time causing the component itself to seem failed. Certain items may be replaceable on a unit itself, but if the unit seems to be consistently failing, it may be time to replace your unit.
Water heating units generally have a life span of between 8 and 12 years, if your water heater is approaching or falls between those years, it may be time to replace your water heating unit.
The anode rod built within the water heating unit can degrade and over time begin to cause your water to obtain a sulfur-like smell, or egg-like smell. This can easily be replaced by the technicians at Armstrong Plumbing.
Over time, sediment build up can cause a tank to fail. This can be detected if you seem to be experiencing less than normal amounts of hot water and can be corrosive over time. Contacting Armstrong Plumbing will allow us to perform maintenance on your water heater yearly.
