Canton Water Heater Repair & Maintenance
Decades of Plumbing Experience in North Metro Atlanta
Your water heater provides hot water for showering, laundry, and countless other household tasks. When it isn’t functioning optimally, it can cause increased energy and water loss. If it starts to leak, you could be dealing with extensive water damage. At My Georgia Plumber, we provide water heater repair and maintenance in Canton, Kennesaw, Alpharetta, Acworth, and throughout North Georgia to fix problems and prevent breakdowns.
Repair for All Types of Water Heaters
Is the hot water in your home not hot enough, running out too quickly, or not working at all? We are equipped with the tools and expertise to repair all types of electric and gas water heaters, including traditional water heaters, tankless water heaters, and hybrid water heaters from all major brands.
Your Water Heater May Need A Repair If It's:
- Not supplying adequate hot water
- Taking a long time to heat water
- Leaking from the water heater tank
- Making noise from the water heater tank
- Leaking out the drain cock
- Leaking out the T&P
We will evaluate your water heater and explain the problem, as well as your options for repair and replacement. Repair is often the best choice when the water heater isn’t too old, the tank isn’t leaking, and the malfunctioning component is able to be replaced. Certain problems, such as rusty water or a leaking tank indicate that the water heater needs to be replaced.
What Causes A Water Heater To Breakdown?
When your water heater is broken, there are countless signs that typically indicate a repair is needed. But what causes the breakdown in the first place? There are various components within your water heater that can become damaged, resulting in a repair being needed.
Common Water Heater Problems:
- Sediment buildup
- Damaged heating components within the water heater
- Thermostat issues resulting in water that is too hot or too cold
- An extinguished or malfunctioning pilot light
- Broken or damaged anode rod
- A faulty T&P valve
- Loose plumbing connections
- A faulty or obstructed drain valve
Keeping up with regular maintenance is an important step in preventing any of the above problems. However, there are times when a repair will be needed. Make sure to have your water heater inspected and repaired right away by a professional plumber to prevent any further damage that could potentially leave your system unrepairable.
Why Regular Water Heater Maintenance Is So Important
A bit of regular maintenance can make a huge difference in a water heater’s performance and energy efficiency. While there are some maintenance tasks that are easy enough to perform on your own, such as flushing the tank to reduce sediment buildup, other repair and maintenance tasks are best left to a trained professional. We are equipped to provide water heater repair and maintenance for all water heater types and brands.
During Maintenance Visits, Our Water Heater Technicians Will:
- Assess the condition of the tank
- Check the thermostat setting and adjust, if needed
- Test the temperature and pressure relief valve
- Examine the expansion tank for rust or leaks

When we visit your home for repairs or routine maintenance, our Canton water heater maintenance technicians can assess the overall condition of your water heater and its performance. If we notice a problem, we can perform minor adjustments and repairs, which can often help you avoid an unexpected loss of hot water.
