Call us now at 503-302-8549.

Are you having the following issues?

  • Providing not enough hot water
  • Having no hot water at all

Safety Precaution Steps Before Doing Water Heater Repairs:

  1. Turn off the water heater power by turning off the circuit breaker or fuse.
  2. Turn the gas valve into the “pilot” setting.
  3. Turn off the water supply.
  4. Have a second person around that can help and watch over you.

Water Heater Repair is not a DIY

Consider calling a Salem Plumber to fix your heater. 

Not Heating Sufficient Water

What is wrong with the water heater not providing ample hot water? The unit could be too small to meet your household demand. Make sure the amount of hot water you need does not exceed the capacity of your water heater. If your needs are high for the water radiator capacity, try to limit the length of showers or install a low-flow showerhead and assign the dishwashing and laundry to different times of the day. Call a plumber to avoid any hazard.

Not Heating Water

What causes a water heater that is not heating water at all? It merely implies either insufficient power or failure of one or more of its heating elements.

First, check the water heater’s circuit breaker within the service panel to make sure it hasn’t tripped. In case the breaker has tripped, switch it off, then switch it back on again. Call a plumber to fix this issue.

Producing Smelly Water

Bacteria can cause smelly hot water. To solve this, try replacing your anode rod. Anode rod protects your water heater from rusting. As time passes, it corrodes instead of your water heater, but sometimes this can lead to a reaction between the rod and sulfate from the water that causes the water to stink. Checking and replacing the anode rod at this point is a good practice.

Another way to solve this is by adding hydrogen peroxide to your water heater to eliminate anaerobic bacteria. Just flush your tank and filled it with hydrogen peroxide. Allow it to sit for two hours. After that, clean your water heater again with clear water and refill it. Is the smelly water still linger? Don’t wait too long to call the attention of the plumbing professional.

Loud Noise

Loud noises inside your water heater tank mean there is a sediment buildup in the bottom of your heater. The presence of sediment can then move around your tank, which causes loud noise. It can lead to a significant problem when neglected.

In that case, consider flushing your water heater out regularly to put all the sediments away. Also, installing a water softener in your house can be an excellent option to eliminate the residue build up in your tank. 

Don’t do it yourself. Trying to save a few hundred dollars may cause you more if not done right. Call us today!

We requested a visit to quote us on replacing a 38-year-old water heater. They showed up exactly on time, discussed options with us, and was able to do the work the same day. Incredible service and the install was done exceptionally well. I would use them again in a heartbeat.

My house had been sitting vacant before we purchased it. Allen came in and explained what needed to get done and he gave me an honest price to do it. He was fast and the work looked great, and he didn’t leave any messes behind! Such great customer service! Best plumber I’ve ever hired, don’t waste your time with anyone else!!

Allen has helped with the remodeling of 2 bathrooms. His service is extraordinary and he is very professional. I wouldn’t use any other plumber now.


Allen and Kyris came on last-minute notice and helped with my leak In my bathroom. Not only were they quick to fix my problem but they were polite, professional, and have amazing prices too. They were literally half the cost of other plumbers I had called.


We are so thankful for United Plumbing and Allen. We had no water for 4 days and they had it fixed and back on in an hour! The right tools and the right knowledge. Please try them. We highly recommend them.
