Water Heater FAQs
Water smelling like rotten eggs, are usually caused by a worn out anode in the water heater. The problem can be solved by replacing the anode or depending on the age of the water heater, replacing the entire water heater. Please call us to help determine the problem.
When you take a shower and you lose hot water when someone else in the home runs water, the problem may be that your main water pipes are too small. New pipes might need to be installed in the home.
Or, there could be sediment buildup or corrosion at the opening of the water heater hot water valve. Sediment or corrosion could cause fluctuations in the water temperature.
A professional plumber should be called to assess the situation, since solutions could include replacement of corroded pipes, checking the water heater, or replacing the shower system with one that is pressure balanced.
The best way to determine the source of the problem and ensure that you have it repaired correctly is to contact an experienced plumber.
Tips about Water Heaters everybody should know
If you have a gas water heater, you should periodically check the pilot light. The flame should be blue with a yellow tip. If the entire flame is yellow, this may mean you need a safety adjustment. Contact a professional to fix the problem.
While you are under your water heater checking the pilot light, make sure there is not an excessive buildup of soot. This can cause a clogged flue, which in turn can lead to carbon monoxide leaking into your home. Thus, cleaning any soot is of vital importance!
Sediment buildup at the bottom of your tank can cause a multitude of problems, such as causing your heater to make loud noises or hindering performance. You can avoid this by draining the water from the tank annually.
Have your hot water heater inspected by a contractor at a minimum once every two years. He or she can diagnose potential problems and enact easy, quick repairs, which will save you from a complete water heater replacement down the road.
