Emergency Hot Water Tank Repairs

Hot water tank emergencies can happen at any time. That’s why Black Forest Plumbing provides emergency hot water tank repair services 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our expert technicians are on call to come to the rescue in any of these hot water emergencies:

  • A leaking hot water tank. A leak could result from corrosion inside the tank, a broken or cracked pipe or too much pressure inside the tank, which could cause an explosion.

  • The water is too hot. Extremely hot water is dangerous, especially for children. Get the situation fixed immediately.

  • The water is cloudy or smells bad. Dirty, stinky water could indicate a problem with your water heater. Bacteria can accumulate if your water heater temperature is set too low. Also, corrosion and sediment buildup can cause your water to turn brown. Call a professional if your water is dirty or smells terrible because bacteria in your water supply can be a health hazard.

Black Forest Plumbing provides guaranteed top-quality emergency hot water tank repair. You can count on our team to get the job done right.

Hot Water Tank Maintenance Services

When you install a new hot water tank or replace an old one, you must maintain it well. If you don't, you’ll have more emergency problems, and your tank won’t last as long as it should. Our team can assist you in ensuring daily performance and efficiency with hot water tank repair services and maintenance in the GTA. 


If you want to extend the lifespan of your tank and avoid getting caught without hot water, get your tank professionally inspected and serviced once or twice a year. A routine maintenance visit from one of our technicians includes flushing the tank to remove sediment and checking the unit for signs of corrosion. Regular upkeep ensures your tank continues to work efficiently.

Efficient Hot Water Tank Installation Services

You can have the perfect hot water tank for your home, but without proper installation, your energy and repair expenses can increase. Black Forest Plumbing knows how crucial correct installation is to your home comfort. Our experienced plumbers will do the job right the first time. We source and install a wide range of hot water system models for homes and commercial buildings in Barrie, Newmarket, Vaughan and elsewhere in the Greater Toronto Area.

Types of Hot Water Tanks

Besides traditional electric hot water tanks, Black Forest Plumbing can expertly install, maintain and repair these different water heater systems.

  • Tankless water heaters are becoming more popular because they’re incredibly efficient, take up little space and provide an endless hot water supply. They can cut your energy consumption by 25 per cent because the unit heats only the water you need, whereas tanks are constantly heating the water and wasting energy.

  • Gas water heaters are easy to install, and natural gas is a more cost-efficient energy source than electricity. Natural gas hot water tanks heat the water more quickly than their electric counterparts, so they’re an excellent choice for situations with high water usage.

Black Forest Plumbing technicians are also trained and experienced in installing, repairing or replacing your boiler system.

How to Choose the Right Hot Water Tank

Water consumption varies considerably from one household to another. When choosing the best hot water tank for your home, you must consider the following:

  • The number of people utilizing the hot water system

  • Appliances that use hot water

  • How much water you use every day

  • The peak time of your usage

Talk to an expert at Black Forest Plumbing if you want to learn more about the ideal hot water system for your home or office based on your hot water consumption.

Does Your Hot Water Tank Need to Be Repaired?

Here are a few signs that indicate there's a problem with your hot water system, and it should be assessed by an experienced plumber as soon as possible.

  • The water temperature is inconsistent. This could indicate a problem with the heating element.

  • You hear creaking, banging or popping. Strange noises often signal that there's sediment buildup at the bottom of the tank.

  • You notice leaks. This can be a sign of overheating, rust, or excess pressure in the tank.

  • There's an unpleasant smell in your water. Foul odours could be caused by bacteria growing in the heater.

  • The water is dirty. The presence of red, muddy, or rusty water is due to scale accumulation in the tank. When the heating components come in contact with the mineral deposits, they dissolve in water, making it dirty.

  • There are clogged pipes. Mineral deposits in metal pipes are more likely to occur when you use hot water. Mineral deposits can block pipes, lowering water pressure and potentially causing the pipes to burst. Your pipes may be clogged if you have an outdated hot water system that hasn't been serviced in a long time.

Keep in mind that hot water systems generally last about 15 years. If yours is nearing the end of its lifespan, replacing it may be the better option than repairing it.
