WHEN TO REPLACE

    WHEN SHOULD I REPLACE MY WATER HEATER?

      We rarely think about our hot water heater, it being tucked in a corner of the garage or in a closet,           it's easy to forget we even have one, until one day we walk into the garage and see water on the             floor, worse yet a flooding water heater.

  • AGE: Most appliances have a life expectancy, most Sacramento tank water-heaters fail at different times depending on the quality of water heater, if they were purchased from a box box store, most of these have a life expectancy of only 8-10 years at most, if your water heater is a contractors grade, its life expectancy is usually 12-14 years and, if you have a professional grade, it can last as much as 20-years, however most water heaters in Sacramento should be replaced by 12 years and over. Water Heater Pros can help you with a Professional grade and installed to all safety codes.

  • LEAKING: Most water heaters that leak cannot be repaired, if the leak is coming from the tank. If the leak is coming from piping connected to your hot water heater tank or the service valve at the bottom of the tank, any of these item in most cases can be repaired, again factor in the age and it may be better just to replace the whole heater if it's close to or beyond it's life expectancy, this may save you repair money that could go towards a new water heater.

 

  • LACK OF MAINTENANCE: Most water heaters build up minerals during its heating cycles, these minerals settle to the bottom of your heater tank, this is what can cause a water heater to fail in Sacramento well beyond its life expectancy. Flushing once a month will usually keep your tank clean, this is usually the only maintenance required for most tank water heaters. Call Water Heater Pros for free advise and helpful hints

  • RUMBLING SOUND: This can be dangerous, as this sound is usually coming from trapped water under a layer of mineral buildup, this water on a gas water heater can become super heated even boiling, the noise your hearing is air bubbles being released by the super heated boiling trapped water. The layer of harden mineral deposit can crack open releasing this super heater water into your pipes and cause severe scalding.

 

  • NOT ENOUGH HOT WATER: Usually due to accumulation of minerals at the bottom of the tank. This build-up can and does displace the room in your tank, a 50-gallon tank my become only 42-gallons due to this build up, high flow shower heads or long showers is another reason you run out of hot water. Your family has grown maybe from 3-people to 5-people you may need a larger water heater. Call Us 

  • ​ODOR OR DISCOLORED WATER: Most odor coming from a water heater is caused by bacteria in the tank, flushing your tank at this point usually will not help too much, the tank can be treated this process can take un to 24-hours. Replacing your aluminum anode rod with Magnesium will also help to clear up this ODOR. Discolored and or gritty water usually means the tank is rotting away and replacement as soon as possible is recommended, Water Heater Pros can get this done in less than 3-hours.
