At Lew Plumbing and Heating, we specialize in maintaining & repairing hot water tanks for residential & commercial buildings. Hot water tanks which are properly serviced and maintained, can last many years longer if the common problems that arise are carefully addressed by a professional plumbing and heating technician.
A few of the common problems that can arise include electrical/gas issues such as a broken water boiler thermostat, a malfunctioning heating element, and gas supply fluctuations.
Rust can also be a major problem contributing to discolored water, staining of fixtures and appliances, and if not serviced, to the destruction of the hot water tank itself. Sediment can cause the boiler to emit unusual noises, and the sediment will eventually create leaks within the tank itself.
If your hot water smells like rotten eggs, there may be an issue with bacteria affecting the water quality. All of these issues can be taken care of if diagnosed early and correctly repaired.
Lastly, you may realize that your family has outgrown the current system when there is not enough hot water for showers, dishes, & laundry each day. If that is the case, you may want to consider installing a larger hot water tank to meet your daily needs. Here at Lew Plumbing, we can explain the cost of a new tank and provide expert installation.
