Both residents and businesses around Layton, UT, have turned to Smedley Service for water heater repair since 1947. Hot water is more than a mere modern convenience; it is necessary for many everyday functions. You depend on it for bathing, cleaning, and cooking, just to name a few things. When your water heater has a problem, it brings everything to a screeching halt. Your symptoms may be unusual sounds, lack of water pressure, or cold water from your faucets. Fortunately, these symptoms could mean that you need water heater service, not necessarily a new unit.
Understanding Water Heater Repair
Most water heaters don’t suddenly stop working altogether. Rather, they show subtle signs that something’s wrong and your unit needs service. The longer you ignore these symptoms, the more likely it is that you’ll have substantial repair or replacement costs.
If you notice any of the following signs, call to have a plumber troubleshoot your problem and inspect your water heater.
- Cool water from your faucets
- Clunking or loud sounds from your unit
- Low hot water pressure
- Metallic tasting hot water
- Leaking or pooling near your unit
An annual flush will resolve many of these problems and keep your water heater working optimally. Don’t attempt flushing your unit on your own as it may cause scalding burns if not properly performed. Rather, this is a simple procedure for a plumber, and it allows them to inspect your unit at the same time.
Some parts of your unit will eventually wear out and need replacing before the end of the unit’s service life. The most common is the anode rod, which helps prevent the inside of the tank from rusting. There’s also the gas valve, heating element, timer, thermocouple, TCO, and ECO that may need replacing.
