Frequently Asked Questions About Water Heaters, and Hot Water Problems

Here are a few frequently asked questions about water heaters in your home or business.

How do I know if my water heater needs to be repaired or replaced?

There are a few signs that could mean that there are issues with your water heater. Poor water pressure, sudden changes in temperature, unexplained changes to your water bill, or more obvious signs like water discharge and leaking.

Why should I have my water system flushed?

Over time, the minerals in your water can cause sediments and deposits in your system. By having us flush your system, these deposits that can be harmful to your system will be flushed out, as well as any stagnant water in the system.

Why is water leaking from my water heater?

Leaking water is most likely a valve failure. If the T&P valve has failed, there will be water leakage. Or it’s possible that it’s a pipe that is loose or become cracked.

Why is the water temperature too cold or too hot?

If the water from your spigots is too hot or too cold, it could be a thermostat problem. Whether it’s a buildup of sediment, or a faulty thermostat, we can easily repair those with a standard service call.

Why is my hot water discolored or brown?

If your hot water heater is producing rusty colored water, it could be due to corrosion within the water heater tank. Certain water sources can cause this problem and when corrosion continues, then a leak will most likely happen. Regardless if it’s a gas or electric water heater, we can provide the solution and recommend a plan to prevent future problems

Why does my water smell strange?

If your water stinks or smells strange, it could be a couple of things. For one, there could be a higher than normal level of bacteria present. Another cause of stinky water is a high level of phosphor in the water. This is typically common in ground water, as opposed to city water that is treated. Depending on your water source, there are a couple of options to resolve this. One would be replace the anode in the water heater, or installing a water softener of home water filtration system.
