water heater repair in Woodland Hills, CA

Roberts Plumbing Hydro Jet & Rooter is the team that you can rely on when you need a plumber in Woodland Hills, CA, who can explain the parts of your water heater. You can quickly learn it before they arrive. 

These are the parts of the traditional water heater:


The main bulk of the water heater is a tank holding up to one hundred gallons of water at a temperature under pressure up to 80 PSI. This tank is insulated and there is often an additional layer of insulation. You can see the outer shell over the tank. The tanks don't often fail. When they do, you will need hot water heater replacement in Woodland Hills, CA, immediately.

Heat-out pipe

We all know that heat rises, so the heat-out pipe is up at the top of the tank, and hot water exits through this pipe.


This controls and monitors the temperature. There may be more than one thermostat in some hot water heaters. Thermostat problems often call for water heater repair in Woodland Hills, CA.

Heating mechanism 

If your system uses gas, your water is heated with a burner. If it's electric, it has a heating element that heats the water. This element is checked as part of our water heater installation in Woodland Hills, CA.

Dip tube 

This is the entry point for water into the tank of your unit.

Drain valve 

You will need water heater services in Woodland Hills, CA, if your drain valve malfunctions. It can cause some serious water damage in your home if it breaks.

Some systems skip the tank altogether. You can have a tankless water heater in Woodland Hills, CA, installed by Roberts Plumbing Hydro Jet & Rooter. Many of the parts remain the same, but you save on size. Be sure to contact our team today to learn more about your options or to schedule an appointment.
