Water Heater Services in Portland and Gresham, OR
While we are well-versed in repairing main lines and Water Lines in homes, we also have the experience to fix water heaters effectively as well. Water heaters have a typical lifespan of at least ten years but can become worn down over time. There are various signs that can indicate that the water heater in your home may be experiencing problems, including:
Water running out of the spigot that’s tainted with rust is a common indicator that the heater is rusting from the inside, and the corrosion can eventually result in a leak if left unchecked.
Noises Coming From Inside The Water Heater
Rumbling and loud sounds being emitted from the inside of the water heater is often caused by the buildup of sediment. This material inside of the water heater prevents it from running effectively, causing the heater to eventually fail if it isn’t fixed.
Water Puddles On The Floor
If you see water on the floor near a water heater, try to determine if the leak is coming from the appliance. Once a water heater tank starts leaking it needs to be replaced by professionals.
If any of these symptoms can be found in your home, call Apollo Plumbing Service for assistance. We’ll inspect your water heater and recommend the best approach for remedying the problem.
Water Heater Replacement Portland
With new technology and advancements, modern water heaters are more efficient than older systems. With new appliances saving up to 20% on energy usage, this results in customers being able to save a significant amount of money. At Apollo Plumbing Service in Portland & Gresham, we can install both electric or gas-powered water heaters in homes depending on our customer’s preference. In addition, we are also mindful of the various types of water heaters and how to safely install them:
New conventional water heaters usually have better insulation than old ones. With better insulation, the tank retains heat longer and uses less energy. New style glass liners resist the corrosion that can affect metal tanks. The most efficient tank water heaters have a thermal resistance rating of R-12 to R-25.
Tankless heaters provide hot water on demand. They don’t remain on standby, using energy to store hot water. Instead, when a person or appliance taps into a hot-water line, it turns on burners that heat the water as needed. This type of heater uses less energy than conventional water models. Because they don’t have a tank, these devices are compact and can be tucked into small spaces.
Hybrid water heaters use energy-efficient, on-demand technology and also include a small reservoir. Like tankless models, hybrids heaters are energy efficient. Because they also have a tank, they provide a continuous supply of hot water.
Heaters come with different types of warranties, with a full one-year warranty being the most common. Limited warranties for certain failed components can run from 6 to 12 years. Newer heaters, especially those under warranty, are worth repairing, and at Apollo Plumbing Service, we have the experience needed to service any type of water heater. We provide services for a wide array of manufacturers.

Fantastic customer service. We were out of town when tenants needed help with a plumbing issue. They let us know who was being dispatched to our house then followed up with a very detailed message post work. I would definitely use these guys again.
I can’t say enough good things about this company. Had a sewer repair needed and had a very short amount of time due to closing on a house sale. Every single person I encountered from Marquita doing logistics for my job to every member of the work crew. Friendly, communicated well, totally responsive and really cared to help me through this very stressful job. All of the people I encountered were role models for what a well run service business should be. Much thanks and appreciation. You’re great.
We had a leak and no hot water. Apollo came out same day and not only fixed the problem but made it better and gave us some good advice on our system. Very reasonable and great communication. Would definitely recommend.
Don is always so helpful and knowledgeable. I really appreciate all the crew members on the Apollo team. I'm a Property Manager so typically I will have several projects for Apollo to address during a single visit. They are easy to interact with and EXCELLENT plumbers. I highly recommend Apollo.
Scott, I would like to personally thank you for expediting our plumbing crisis we recently had. If the situation was not resolved immediately we would have had to close for a couple of days. This occured on a Friday for for us a pizza restaurant this would of been devastating. Thank you so much.

It's my absolute pleasure to recommend Karen Johnson at Apollo Plumbing Service. I have had the pleasure of taking a class taught by Karen. Her knowledge and expertise is a huge advantage to my entire office. I know if I am in a pinch I can call the office and talk to someone! Their customer service is truly amazing, and I have had compliments from customers in the past.

We are a Wendy's Restaurant franchisee in Vancouver, Washington and I want to personally thank Scott and his crew at Apollo for invaluable and excellent service to our restaurants over the last several years. We have used Scott's company after failing miserably with Apollo's many competitors. We tried every one before discovering the extraordinary service we enjoy from Scott and his techs.
I worked with Russeil Charley and just have to say. He was very knowledgeable about everything about our job and even more information that gave us knowledge about our 107—year—old home that we did not know about. He was very pleasant to work with and my wife mentioned how nice he was to work, including calling her mam.
