I am an absolute shopaholic. I spend a lot of time patronizing literally every type of business under the sun. As an avid consumer, I believe that I have advice that I can give businesses that can help them become more successful and serve there customers better. Even though I am the only one working on this blog, much of what I write comes from endless conversations with friends and family members who have experienced frustrations when patronizing businesses, big and small. My name is Alice Stark and I hope you enjoy the journey that we will be going on together!
If you are not careful enough and watching for signs of trouble, you might wake up one morning to find that you no longer have any hot water in the house. Since this is probably not something that you are going to want to deal with, you will want to make sure that you are doing your best to watch for signs of something going wrong. This way, as soon as you notice something that is not working as well, you will know that it is time to call a reputable plumber in your area.
You Hear A Rumbling Sound In The Tank
Over the years, hot water tanks will often build up some sediment along the bottom of the tank itself. This sediment will begin to harden, and once it does, as the water heater is in use, the hardened sediment will float around the tank and hit off of the sides of it. This is the rumbling or banging sound that you might be hearing. Usually, by the time the problem of sediment gets to the point of making noise, it is time to have a qualified plumber replace it, as the sediment has most likely already caused a lot of internal damage.
You See That Your Water Is Now Discolored
If you find that the water coming out of your faucets is now discolored, you will need to quickly find out the cause. Ask your neighbors if they too are experiencing brown water. If they are, then it is most likely because the town may be working on the public water supply lines. The water should resume its normal color when they are finished with their work.
However, if the discolored water is only in your home, you will want to talk with a plumber about coming to your home to investigate the problem. It is either due to bad pipes or the more likely issue of a bad hot water tank. Discolored water is often the result of a hot water tank that is developing rust. As the rust breaks off of the tank and floats around in the water, the water becomes brown in color.
It is important to make sure that you are calling in an expert as soon as possible. This way, your hot water tank can be repaired or replaced before you and your loved ones find yourselves without any hot water.Share
