3 Signs It’s Time to Call for Dallas Water Heater Repair

Posted on: November 20, 2015

Here’s some water heater trivia for you from a professional plumber: did you know that, while in most parts of the country water heater life expectancy is estimated to be about 8 to 12 years, a water heater in Dallas, TX typically only lasts between 6 and 10?

No, it has nothing to do with bad luck – the reason water heaters typically are under more strain in the Southwest region of the U.S. is due to water hardness. Hard water is water that has percolated through lime deposits underground, giving it excessive mineral content. While not harmful to humans, the minerals in hard water are harmful to your plumbing. Over time, they create scale buildup in your pipes and appliances that can cause reduced lifespans and sudden failures – particularly for water heaters!

But here’s another handy fact: with help from Dial One Johnson Plumbing, Cooling & Heating, you can save money and time on water heater repair in Dallas. Our local water heater professionals have been serving this area for years, and we want to make sure every homeowner in Dallas knows how to avoid hot water disaster. It starts with knowing when to call.

Be Smart – Don’t Wait for Dallas Water Heater Repair

All water heaters fail sometime, but there’s no need to wait until you have no hot water or find a flood in your basement to request professional service. Here are three warning signs of water heater failure to help you stay ahead of hard water and the water heater problems it can cause.

Once you notice the following issues, give Dial One Johnson a call:

  • Loud Noises During Operation – Every water heater makes some sound, but if you’re hearing banging and clanging sounds from your appliance it could mean that pieces of lime scale have become dislodged in the storage tank. These can damage the water heater interior.
  • Water Pooling Around Device – Leaks are always bad news, but they can be especially problematic for a water heater. The minerals in hard water wear away rubber sealants, causing pipes to leak – your water heater will constantly be trying to fill your faulty tank, causing extra wear and tear. Some water heaters have automatic shut-off valves that will detect leaks and turn off your hot water altogether, which explains many a cold shower!
  • 10 Years or Older – How old is your water heater? You may be able to find out by checking the code written on the side of the appliance. If not, you can typically follow your nose: the anode rods in older machines decay, creating a musty odor. Either way, if your water heater was installed a decade ago, it’s time to have it checked out!

Great overall experience




Review of Dial One Johnson Plumbing

A great overall experience from beginning to end. I appreciated all of the time Daniel took to examine my existing system, ask questions and make recommendations on a replacement. It was clear that not all companies are willing to do that. The installation team showed up on time and worked quickly to remove the old system and get the new one into place. Everyone was very nice and professional, I highly recommend the entire team.

Review of Dial One Johnson Plumbing

I don't write reviews. So, you must know this is a really good company for me to be taking time to write this... We've been home owners for 20yrs. We've used so many different plumbing companies, it has been exhausting wondering "are they going to do a good job? are they ripping me off?" Dial One Johnson was recommended to us by a neighbor and they are TOP NOTCH! We've had them out to service sewer line blockages (old house, roots growing, yuck but they solved the issue!) and now a broken water heater issue. In all service experiences, the guys are professional and patient. They take time to share their knowledge in layman's terms, which I completely appreciated! Their service fee is the lowest I've seen, so I felt taken care of (not taken advantage of). The Gals who manage the calls are so polite, always cheerful and work to get a service provider out as soon as possible. And best of all, they have a REALLY affordable yearly service/maintenance plan that I am signing up for- because it comes with all kinds of savings and PEACE OF MIND- that I now have professionals taking care of my plumbing, heating AND AC needs! HIGHLY RECOMMEND this CompanY!


Great service very informative awesome

James did a wonderful job


Above and Beyond the call of duty!




Review of Dial One Johnson Plumbing

James came to a rental property with very unique plumbing issues several times. I live out of town and he continually sent me pictures and called me with issues. I SO appreciate his dedication and persistence. He thought “out of the box” and was able to fix everything. He spent lots of time, did great work and prices were reasonable. He was there until 6:30 on a Friday the first time he came. Thank you James and Dial One Plumbing. You are my new plumbers!
