When is it Time for a New Water Heater?

Hey, we get it.  Water heaters can be expensive.  They’re not necessarily at the top of everyone’s shopping spree list.  I mean I’d rather buy just about anything!  That’s why at Duncan Plumbing Solutions; we try to make plumbing and the process of purchasing water heaters, toilets and new plumbing fixtures as easy and painless and possible.

 5 Signs it is Time for a New Water Heater

 

Puddles: Pools of water surrounding the water heater are one of the more obvious signs of water heater trouble.   If your heater is in a closet in the garage and you notice wetness coming from the area, open the door and do a quick check. Visible water is clear evidence of a possible leak that can be getting ready for a major problem.  Get this checked right away.

 

Decreased Water Quality: Water should be clean and contain only water—not visible sediment, or rust.  Visible corrosion could be a symptom of a number of plumbing problems.

 

Fluctuation: Water pressure and temperature should remain consistent.  Any undesired fluctuation could indicate a problem.  Remember also that water should be hot—not lukewarm—hot.

 

Popping Sounds: Yes, water heaters make strange noises from time to time, but a popping sound, indicative of hard water, could prove detrimental to your pipes and water heater.

 

Burn Marks: If you see anything on your water heater that resembles a burn mark, immediately contact a professional.  This may indicate improper ventilation that may lead to the release of toxic fumes in your home.

 

If you notice any of these signs with your water heater contact Duncan Plumbing Solutions in Waxahachie. We will have a Duncan Plumbing Solutions  certified plumbing professional fix you up so minor problems don’t become major plumbing problems.
