Regardless of how well you maintain your heater, you may run into problems with your water heater on occasion. In that scenario, your best option is to hire a plumber in Corvallis, OR from Linn Benton Plumbing to make repairs. You should avoid DIY water heater repairs due to certain dangers you can encounter.
High Voltage Electricity
The best reason to avoid a DIY repair job and to get professional water heater repair in Corvallis, OR is that there’s a risk of electrocution. Your water heater runs on a high voltage electrical system, which carries a risk of danger even for the pros when they’re wearing the right protective gear.
Fixing the Wrong Part
You may not know which component of your hot water heater needs fixing. Repairing the wrong part can result in an even bigger problem. You can be left with a water heater that no longer functions at all.
If you attempt a DIY repair job on your broken hot water heater, you may expose yourself to harmful chemicals. Inhaling those substances can be hazardous to your health and the health of your family members. Skip the DIY repairs and hire a professional instead.
Voiding Your Warranty
While not a physical danger, attempting DIY repairs instead of getting water heater services from a pro can void your warranty. This means you’ll be throwing money away if you tinker with your heater and cause more damage.
Damaging Electrical or Gas Lines
Another danger of doing DIY repairs on your hot water heater is that you can potentially damage the electrical or gas lines. Either situation is a disaster, but if you damage your gas line, it can pose a significant health hazard to everyone in your home.

When I called and told them my water heater was leaking they sent over a technician right away. Miles, the technician was professional, respectful and knowledgeable. He completed the job quickly and efficiently. I would highly recommend this company.
Linn Benton Plumbing Was definitely a good experience. I had an underground leak beneath our back deck. Not an easy repair. Miles was the plumber, he was able to pull the deck apart and dig down to repair the leak. He finished the project that day. What a relief. I would recommend Linn Benton Plumbing and especially Miles to anyone.
John and his crew are very professional. I spoke with John, I told him my problem, and he came over in the last minute before we were leaving on vacation. We so appreciated his quick response and he had our problem fixed quickly. Awesome folks to work with.
We live in Albany OR. Our garbage disposal stopped working, Jon came out determined the cause (short in the motor) and installed a new disposal. He arrived when he said he would, fixed the problem quickly, and was meticulous in his work. My wife was thrilled at how clean he left the work area.
