Water Heater Repairs
Water heaters are a home plumbing appliance most Guelph homeowners simply expect to work on a daily basis. However, they are not immune to the degrading effects that the passing of time has on us all. To prevent a sudden drought of hot water or more dire consequences, here are some of the signs your water heater requires repairs to look out for.
Your water heater is making strange noises. Over the years, sediment in the water stored builds up at the bottom of the tank. This sediment is usually made up of harmless minerals that precipitate out of the water once it gets hot. If you have hard water in your home without a water softener, the chances of these minerals building up are much higher than if you have the right filters. As the sediment levels continue to buildup in the tank, it will cause blockages, reduce the heater’s efficiency and accelerate the corrosion within the pipes. This process is why you are hearing rumbling and banging noises coming from your water heater.
As soon as you hear strange noises, contact DSL Mechanical right away to save yourself from more costly repairs in the future.
Water is pooling around the tank. Whenever you see water dripping or pooling around the water heater’s tank, it is a sign that your water heater is leaking or fractured. This is especially common in systems between 10 and 20 years old. Unfortunately, if your water heater is cracked and leaking, there is not much we can do in terms of repairs as it will only be a temporary fix before you need an outright replacement. Excess moisture around the tank will lead to water damage, mold growth and could be an electrical hazard. Plus, a leaking water heater will be less efficient and result in more expensive water bills and wasted water.
If you have noticed water pooling around your tank, contact DSL Mechanical immediately and we’ll assist you in installing a brand new one that won’t be putting your home at risk or wasting your valuable resources.
