Common Problems

Just Electric Water Heaters

  • hot water heaterBad Heating Elements- An electric hot water heater works the way your electric stove works, except those elements that heat the stove top are stretched out and sit in the tank of the water. Do not ever pull the heating elements out of a hot water heater without first contacting a licensed plumber. If you do, then all of that water that sits in the tank will now be on your floor and in your walls.
  • Thermostat Not Working- Have you ever woken up in the morning looking forward to that nice warm shower, only to find that it’s ice cold? Then you may have a bad thermostat. It’s important not to try to work on this thermostat yourself. If you do not know what you are doing, the electricity in an electric water heater can be deadly.

All Water Heaters

  • Leaking Tank- A leaky tank can be devastating for your house and all your belongings. Think about how big your water tank actually is. All of that water inside the tank could potentially end up on your floor soaking into the walls and causing dangerous mold. A leaking hot water heater could be caused by any number of things, from fittings or a drain valve that aren’t quite right, to a defective tank. Don’t risk a disaster! Call a licensed plumber to fix the problem right the first time.
  • Pressure Relief Valve- When your water heater actually heats up the water for the dishes or the shower, it creates a lot of pressure. To keep that pressure in check, and to keep the tank from blowing up, there is a pressure relief valve. Sometimes this valve will go bad and blow water all over the place. If you find that you need a new one, or you don’t know, simply give us a call and we’ll do it right the first time!
