What's Happening to My Water Heater?

Changing Water Temperature

If the water temperature begins to fluctuate, the heater has an issue. Even if you don't alter the water's temperature, it will continue to fluctuate over time. Mineral deposits surrounding the water heater's heating elements are usually to blame. If you notice that the temperature of your water is fluctuating, you should contact a professional licensed plumbing contractor.

Reduced Hot Water Pressure

The water pressure in your water heater might be lower because of built-up hard water mineral deposits, which is bad for the appliance. In addition, accumulating mineral deposits around the heating components might be the cause of low hot water pressure.  Moreover, water pressure decreases as a water heater ages. Your water heater repair and installation specialist can help restore your home's water pressure.

Leaking Water Heater

A leaking water heater is never a good thing. The problem could be as minor as a faulty drain valve or something as bad as a leaking storage tank. Whatever the case, your Big B's Plumber will inform you of all your options. Call today for water heater repair or new installation.

Cloudy Unpleasant Smelling Water

Discolored water can be traced back to mineral deposits that have built up in your water heater tank due to a lack of routine maintenance. To rectify this, simply flush your water heater. To avoid this issue and extend the life of your water heater, you should service it once a year. Interior corrosion in the storage tank can also be the culprit. However, in that instance, it's best to replace it.

Water Is Not Heating Up 

Sometimes the problem is as simple as no gas supply or a pilot light that's out. Other issues that will stop your water from heating are a broken burner, a tripped breaker, or a defective heating element.   

Hot Water Runs Out Too Fast

If your pilot light does not stay lit, then the problem is probably a worn-out thermocouple. A thermocouple is an important safety device that measures temperature.

Minor Electric Water Heater Repairs

If your thermostat cannot be set, it will need replacing. However, replacing the thermostat will usually take care of the problem. Sediment around your element can cause it to malfunction. Removing the sediment from the area can fix this problem if the element has yet to burn out. These are just a few examples of minor fixes to your electric water heater. Before you decide to replace your water heater, consult your Big B's Plumbing water heater repair technician.

Maintenance is Critical to the Long-Term Benefits

Water heaters are one of those appliances that are "out of sight, out of mind," sitting in the corner of our garage, working year after year. However, maintenance is critical for long-term benefits. It is especially important in those homes that have no water filtration. Hard water can build up in the storage tank and shorten your water heater lifespan. At Big B's Plumbing, we have a dedicated team of water heater repair experts who can do a maintenance check, repair, or install a new one.

If you find yourself without hot water and have a water heater fallout, Big B's Plumbing can have you up and running faster than you would have thought possible. 



What People Are Saying...

I called Big B's Plumbing because I the hot water would not turn off in our master bathroom. I tried to turn the valve off under the sink and it broke off, so I had to shut off the main water to the house. It was noticeable the valves were original to the home. When I called, the rep stated that I would be informed about the service tech and their experience along with services offered "On The Spot". I was on a bit of a time crunch...

Found them on Google and they had good quality reviews. Made the call and set up the appointment for same day. Dispatch called me a few hours later to confirm our appointment and let me know that the technician Mathew was on the way. This was supposed to be an easy job once Mathew arrived. But it turned out to be so much more than that. Without hesitation or a sour look on his face, he dove deep into his van...
