When to Call a Hot Water Technician (Signs You Need Repairs)

Are you tired of taking cold showers because you weren’t the first person to wake up in the morning? Are you fed up with having to choose between doing laundry and washing the dishes because you know there won’t be enough hot water for both?

Have you checked your hot water system yet? The first thing that a hot water service technician will ask is if your water heater is leaking. This is one of the most common reasons why your hot water system isn’t actually heating up your water.

Water Heater Leak Repair

water-leak-from-the-tankIf your water heater is leaking you need to make sure that you have a plumber repair it right away. Now, this is technically considered an emergency repair and our hot water specialists will be more than happy to come and fix the problem. If you are dealing with leaking don’t hesitate or wait to call. Our customer service staff will attend to you immediately.

If the leak is bad enough then you will need to also check for damages to the floor around the leak. When the leak damages enough of the surrounding wood, then you could also be looking at rot or even mold which would be another entirely significant issue with a pretty large price tag. This could require a hot water system repair or even a total hot water system replacement.

The point is that in a case like this, you need to move fast. Depending on how damaged the hot water unit is and how large the leak actually is you might be looking at more than just repairs for the leak.

You could actually be dealing with repairs for all the damages that have been caused by the leaking. This is why it is so important to get in contact with a hot water technician.

Water Heater Leaking From Drain Valve

Now, if the water heater is leaking from the drain valve this can cause some real issues. The entire reason that water heaters are installed with a drain valve is to be able to drain all the water from the water heater if you ever need to replace your hot water systems or perform hot water repairs or maintenance.

If the leaks are minor you can typically use a cap to keep the water from leaking out of the water heater and from causing any further damage to your home.

Now, if the leak is bad enough, you will need to just replace the valve altogether. For our hot water repair technicians, this will be a simple fix and won’t take up too much time at all.
