Water Heater Services in Chula Vista
Water heaters are essential plumbing appliances for many homes and properties in the Chula Vista area. As one of the most used appliances, they are prone to developing and exhibiting signs of failure over time.
The following are some of the most common problems that can be observed with water heaters. Keep in mind that water temperature and corrosion can also affect tankless models, which BPI also services and installs.
Water Temperature Problems
Perhaps the most common problems that we face with regards to water tank heaters are with the temperature. These issues can range from the water being too hot or too cold, or the water tank being inconsistent with its performance. In any case, the problem is usually attributed to a broken heating mechanism, which can be quickly replaced by our technicians.
Leaking Water Tanks
There are several signs of a water tank leak which you should be on the lookout for. One is if you see water trickling down along the sides or at the bottom of the tank, and two is if you see puddles of water under the tank. In any case, you should make it a point to call a professional water heater repair technician right away.
In many cases, there is no long-term and effective method to sealing these leaks, and replacement may be the best (and oftentimes only) solution available.
Rust and Corrosion
Water tanks are exposed to ground water, and since they’re usually made of iron or other similar materials, it is natural for them to corrode and rust after several years of use. As with the above, the best option to dealing with a rusty and corroded water heater tank is to replace it. If you own a tankless water heater, you’ll need to have the integrated heating element inspected for damage and repaired accordingly.
Strange Noises Coming from the Tank
Many of our clients often notice and complain about hearing strange noises coming from their water heater tanks. In most cases, the noise comes from the sediment buildup inside the tank which burns as the water is heated. This can be remedied by flushing and cleaning the water tank.
