We often forget about our hardworking water heaters—until we get surprised by icy water after turning on the shower! But cold showers aren’t the only problem. Broken water heaters also affect the efficiency of your washing machines and dishwashers.
If your water is not as hot as it used to be, or if you’re not getting any hot water at all, give us a call to have the problem checked out. We will diagnose the issue and explain your options for water heater repair or replacement. You’ll have the hot water you need in no time!
“Why is My Water Only Lukewarm?” and Other Problems
Many of the water heater problems we respond to involve inadequate water temperatures. Whether lukewarm or too hot, a change in water temperature signals a faulty element in your water heater.
If the hot water coming out is scalding, you likely have a malfunctioning thermostat or T&P valve.
If your water is only lukewarm or not hot at all, there are several scenarios at play. The pilot light could be failing to stay lit (in gas units), the drip tube may be broken, the heating element may need replacement, or sediment buildup in the tank might be interfering with the burner.
Other common water heater problems we handle include:
Contact us to have your particular water heater issue diagnosed and resolved. We provide honest recommendations and in some cases even fix problems created by other contractors.
Signs Your Water Heater Needs to Be Replaced
Not all water heater problems require a full system replacement. Our team will carry out repairs when possible to keep costs reasonable for you. If your water heater is still within the warranty period, a repair is often the most cost-effective option.
But when does replacement become necessary? Consider these warning signs:
The above scenarios point to failing water heaters. Corroded tanks are often the main culprit. If the tank has started to rust from the inside, it can suddenly burst and send water flooding through your home. Avoid emergencies by calling our water heater experts for help before any more problems occur. We’ll confirm whether or not your unit needs to be replaced.

Great Service, saved the day!
Alisa - Dayton, OH
They were able to come out today and assess the situation. Braden came out and showed us the problem and he did everything he could to get us back and running today knowing that we have more work to be done. I would recommend them any day of the week for any of your plumbing needs.
Great and friendly service
Barbara - Springboro, OH
Stephen - Dayton, OH
Both the Ben Peters and his apprentice were excellent workers. They immediately identified the problem, explained all the options to fix the problem and then fixed it. In addition, Ben explained the advantages of becoming a member of the Spartan maintenance program. Sounds like a good program, but we declined to sign up. We appreciate the outstanding work and how courteous and polite both men were. Your company should be very proud of them

Braden was very professional and knowledgeable. He replaced my well tank and old pipes. The job looks great, and my problem is resolved! I will definitely use your company again. I am a very satisfied customer
Kari - Springboro, OH
Had a lot of issues going on with our water heater, which sits in a very difficult space but Braden was able to fix us up so we could have a hot shower before bed! Thank you for the awesome service. No wonder y’all have a five star rating ⭐️
Joe - Miamisburg, OH
No one wants gas line repairs, but if you have to get them, go with Spartan. They gave us piece of mind that the job would be done right, and helped us navigate the confusing process of county inspections and how to get our services restored with the gas company. Braden explained what he was doing with the repairs/replacements, gave us different options and priced all options out so we could make an informed decision. The customer support line was also very helpful in scheduling and answering questions. Overall, it was a great experience.
Great service and dedication
Neil - Dayton, OH
Great service Toby
Kelly - Fairborn, OH
Toby was very pleasant, friendly and did an excellent job!!
Great same day service!
Jeff - Miamisburg, OH
We were looking to replace a leaky toilet with an ADA compliant model. Braden answered all our questions and was able to get this replaced the same day! We chose a more expensive one-piece toilet for its compact size and ease of cleaning, which was our choice, but it made the cost higher. We would definitely call Braden again, thanks!!
Great, professional & fast service
