Common Water Heater Problems
For many homes and businesses, a water heater is an essential appliance used every day. With such heavy use, however, a water heater can be susceptible to issues that may compromise its functionality. For example, small amounts of sediment, minerals, and other materials may accumulate in the storage tank over time. If these materials are left in the tank for too long, they will eventually limit the water heater’s efficiency, flow rates, and overall integrity.
Other indications your water heater needs to be repaired include:
- Not producing warm water
- Emitting strange sounds
- Producing brown, rusty, or smelly water
J&C Plumbing and Sewer Service, Inc. can work on any make or model of water heater, tank or tankless, to get your hot water system back on track.
Flushing a Water Tank is Part of Essential Maintenance
Over time, hard water can take a toll on your water heating system. The minerals in hard water can do damage to your water heater tank if you do not take the time to flush the system on a regular basis. Mineral sediment buildup can damage your tank by slowing down its efficiency. Your system will have to work harder to heat up the water inside of it. The greatest dangers for mineral buildup are rust or a blocked drain valve. If you can no longer use your drain valve because of sediment, your tank will need to be replaced because mineral buildup can no longer be removed. Rust is a danger to your tank because it could lead to your tank bursting. Apart from destroying your water heater, this could result in major water damage and costly cleanup.
Sounds that Could Indicate It Is Time for a Flush
If you hear a hissing, rumbling, or popping sound, these are noises commonly associated with sediment buildup in your water. Sediment creates air bubbles, which rise rapidly and create these different sounds when they hit the top of the tank. It is time to act and get your water heater flushed if you are hearing these noises!
Water Heater Replacement in Bergen County
There’s a point in time when it’s going to be better for you to replace your current water heater system instead of continuing to make repairs. This is especially true if you have a water heater tank installed. Water heater tanks are only meant to last around seven years, and less if not kept cleaned and maintained by a professional plumber.
Cleaning & Maintenance of Water Storage Tank
Sediments in the water turn into scale when heated to a certain degree, producing a sticky substance that causes water heater tank problems, scale buildup in the water lines, slow-moving drains, and more. For this reason, water heater tanks need proper cleaning and regular maintenance. J&C Plumbing and Sewer Service, Inc. can provide you with an annual storage tank flush, so your conventional water heater remains reliable and efficient for years.
