Does your Hot Water Heater need repair or replacement?
When you water heater is not working properly, it may be because of any number of repair or maintenance issues. In many cases it is a simple fix and does not require a new hot water heater.
Some of the most common problems we see are:
The anode rod in your water heater is designed to attract corrosion-causing elements in the water, helping to prevent the steel tank from corroding.
The anode rod should be inspected every 3 years and replaced when it has shrunk to about one quarter of its original size. This is very important to avoid leaks in your water heater caused by corrosion of the tank.
How often you will need to replace the anode rod depends on how hard your water is. In most of Pearland area, the water is very hard and your anode rod will probably need replacement fairly often.
Fortunately this is a fairly inexpensive plumbing repair, and can help extend the life of your hot water heater.
Important Tip: Does your water have a nasty odor? In many cases your anode rod needs replacement.
What about the temperature and pressure relief valve?
You may have heard stories about a hot water heater exploding inside a home or business! It is important to understand that a plugged temperature and pressure relief valve on your water heater can turn your water heater into a dangerous time bomb.
