Home / Reasons Your Water Heater Is Malfunctioning
Water heaters are an essential part of our daily lives. A relaxing hot shower after a long day wouldn’t be possible without a functioning heater. And because everyone in the house relies on this appliance for their indoor comfort, the constant usage will inevitably cause a few problems along the way, prompting the need to call a plumber in Chico, CA.
There could be a number of reasons your water heater is requiring plumbing repairs. Let’s go over some of them.
CORRODED OR RUSTED PARTS
Hot water tanks are made of metal which means that at some point in time, they will start to corrode. The anode rod is the most susceptible candidate for corrosion. If you notice your water starts turning brown, call our plumbing company and schedule an anode replacement. The earlier we catch this problem, the less expensive the repairs will be. If the anode is not replaced in time, the rust will spread all over the tank’s inner lining, accelerating the rate of deterioration.
A thermostat helps to regulate the heated water to your desired temperature. If the water feels too hot or cold yet your thermostat reading seems fine, it might be time to replace it. Schedule an emergency plumbing service as soon as possible to prevent injuries from burns.
This problem can easily be noticed when the water pressure gets too low or you continuously run out of hot water. A cracked dip tube will not be able to transport the cold water to the bottom of the tank for heating. Instead, the cold water will be released near the top or middle of the tank and transported to your house’s faucets. If this happens, our plumbing services include dip tube replacements, so we’ve got you covered.
