Life gets out of control fast when your water heater isn’t working correctly. Not being able to wash your hands properly, take a steamy shower, or get your dishes fully clean is a serious frustration that needs to be fixed promptly and professionally. Apollo Home is your go-to Cincinnati area partner for water heater services when you need us.
When Is It Time to Repair Your Water Heater?
It can be a challenge to identify what symptoms are just due to your water heater’s particular configuration and age and what warrants a call to the plumbing professionals at Apollo Home. For example, a standard tank water heater that’s a few years old will commonly take a little while to build hot water back up after a long shower. However, the following issues are more serious:
- Your tank is leaking. Check your water heater to see if there is any water pooling underneath. If there’s corrosion as well, that’s a sign the tank is leaking and could cause complete failure or damage your home’s structure if not repaired.
- Your hot water smells bad. Foul-smelling hot water can indicate a bacterial infestation that requires a full tank flush to clean it out and make your hot water safer.
- Your water heater is operating noisily. Water heaters shouldn’t rattle or emit whining noises or banging sounds. If you hear your water heater at all, it’s likely to need repair.
Common Water Heater Issues
- Water pressure problems
- Tank corrosion
- Malfunctioning pilot light or gas burner

"Ernie & Mike did a superb job on my new furnace and A/C installation. Despite having more than a day’s work to do, they came in and stayed until the job was done. They were organized, efficient, and protected the rest of the house well. Got both furnace and A/C installed the same day. Ernie was courteous, informative, and clearly knew his job better than anyone I’ve encountered before. The units look so good guests now get The Tour of our new system. Apollo is clearly not a fly-by-night company. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a new furnace and/or A/C."

"I called Apollo because of a water leak I thought I had in our upstairs shower going into the kitchen. Robbie came and assured me everything was fine & looked at all the other plumbing. He ended up changing a few pipes for our washer & clearing a drain. He was very nice & knowledgeable with all my questions. I ended up signing up for the care plan & was very happy with my service."

"The team at Apollo exceeded my expectations. As a business owner, my attention to the details and commitment to providing excellent service is high. From the sales rep. to the installation team, everyone’s performance was outstanding. For example, the installation team went to great lengths to protect our floors, placing floor runners and across the wood floors and up the stairs. They even were spot washing walls upon their departure. I highly recommend this company."

"We scheduled an estimate AND a tune-up. We knew something was wrong with our furnace, but hoped we could make it through the rest of the season. Upon telling Bill what our furnace was doing, he warned us immediately what the possible outcome was going to be; a cracked heat exchanger. He watched the flames roll backward, tested carbon monoxide levels, which were so high they meter’s last reading was 5,600 before saying “high”. He immediately shut it down, tagged it, and explained that with levels that high and children in our home he wanted off right away. He continued his inspection and showed us via a camera that not only was it cracked in multiple places, but had holes all over it. He gave us a few options for repairing it; his knowledge as well as genuine concern was beneficial and refreshing. Luckily we also scheduled an estimator, Micah, to come too and we were able to get costs between repairing and replacing (with several options). We decided to replace with a much higher efficiency furnace and one sized properly to our home. Hands down, not only did they both provide us great service and knowledge, but without sounding dramatic, they may have saved our lives. This was our first time calling Apollo, but it won’t be our last."

"Apollo is an excellent company. I always receive great service. Alex A. was professional and friendly. He kept me informed during the process of checking my furnace and heat pump to make sure they were working properly. The company makes sure you are notified who is coming and when they are on the way. All my interactions with the company have been wonderful."
