Generally, when a hot water heater is leaking, it needs to be replaced. Over time, the minerals naturally occurring in your water will create deposits or corrosion that can crack the glass lining of the water heater tank. Note if your tank is self-cleaning or not; water heaters with self-cleaning tanks should last longer and are less-susceptible to glass cracks and leaks.
If your water heater is leaking from one of the connections or valves, it may be repairable. So it’s important to note where your heater is leaking when assessing if a repair or replacement is appropriate for your situation.
There are numerous causes for why your water heater has stopped making hot water. If your heater is electric, or a gas-powered unit with an electric igniter, a power outage will stop our heater from working. Similarly, if it’s electric, double-check the breaker and make sure it hasn’t flipped.
Most water heater service calls are to replace a thermocouple or pilot light assembly. However, once your water heater gets to about eight years old, repairing the unit can end up costing you more than replacing it. A typical water heater will last 8-12 years. If the unit is still under warranty, see if you can get new parts for free from the manufacturer. If it’s out of warranty, we recommend replacing it to avoid paying for costly labor in what could be the units last days.
We look forward to helping you in Torrance. Please keep in mind, while we can quote you a starting price over the phone, we are not able to give a final price until a technician is at your home and can see your unique setup. If you’re happy with the final price, your technician will get to work immediately. But due to this uncertainty, our appointments are no cost and no obligation.

Even in Torrance, water heaters are constantly operating, heating and storing hot water for your use. They’re built to last, but if yours starts leaking or you’re out of hot water, you may need to have your water heater repaired.
Typically, a water heater comes with a warranty anywhere from 5-15 years on parts. For this reason, if you start experiencing issues, try to find the model & serial numbers of your water heater so we can determine if it is still under warranty. Our service technicians are local to Torrance and are familiar with most regional heater applications, brands and models.
It’s important to note, if your existing unit is more than 10 years old, it’s probably nearing its last legs. Considering the cost of labor, rather than repairing it, a more prudent financial choice might be to just replace the water heater.
