Replace Water Heater
Signs you need a new Water Heater:
You keep running out of hot water:
If you have an older system, keep in mind that many old systems that haven’t been maintained for a long time will typically have a layer of sediment that gathers over time. This sediment hinders the ability of the water heater to give on-demand heated water. The sediment often fills up the area meant to be for the water. When this happens it means it may be time to replace your hot water heater. If you want to keep the hot water heater from accumulating the water sediment, you need to have your tank flushed annually.
Your water is muddy or gritty or turns a rusty red color:
There is an element in the water heater called an anode rod. This element’s job is to keep the tank from rusting. Sometimes the anode rod gets corroded and is no longer able to do its job. If your water turns muddy, gritty or a rusty red color, this anode rod is the first thing you should have checked out. If it is the anode rod, it’s important to replace it as quickly as possible. Otherwise, you may need to replace the entire hot water heater unit.
Your water heater is 10 to 20 years old:
Water heater elements can break down over time causing issues. You may be able to just repair some of these elements however water heaters are not like cats. They do not have 9 lives. It may be time to replace the entire unit.
The water heater tank has a leak:
Even though your tank has a leak you may not need to replace the entire unit. Many times leaks are due to the drain valve not working properly. If the drain valve is not working properly, we can fix it. You can ask a professional plumber like Steve to check the unit and see if the drain valve is in working condition. If it is, you may need to replace the water heater.
Strange sounds coming from the water heater:
Strange sounds coming from the water heater is another reason why flushing your water heater annually is important. Air can get trapped in the sediment or other mineral deposits and causes popping or rumbling noises. If you have your water heater flushed annually you can usually keep maintain a healthy water heater and avoid expensive repairs. Healthy water heaters are quiet.
Your water bills have increased:
If your water bill has suddenly started to go up you could have a leak in the water heating system. You could also have a leak in one of the pipes around your home. Either way, we can help. We pride ourselves in being plumbing experts.
An unusual smell, like rotten eggs
Sulfate bacteria smells like rotten eggs. A rotten-egg smell coming out of your faucets when the water is turned on is the most common odor issue with water heaters.
