If you are a homeowner or plan to be soon you will eventually have a plumbing issue. It’s not if you have one; it’s when you have one. Not all plumbing problems are urgent. Small problems such as a leaky faucet, clogged drain or a dripping pipe are not an emergency. Emergency plumbing issues are a leaking water heater threatening to ruin the carpet or a clogged toilet and the house only has one bathroom, those are emergencies. When they occur, you’ll want to call the Scottsdale plumber who can arrive first and fix the problem. That would be Quail Plumbing.
One of the most aggravating plumbing problems is a malfunctioning water heater. A home owner can experience anything from a cold shower to leaks that go unnoticed until it’s too late. Having a cold shower is no way to start the day. Many people fear the worst when there is no hot water. They start thinking about the cost of replacing their water heater. If there is no hot water chances are good it’s probably needs a replacement thermostat, element or a valve. We enjoy watching customers reactions when they find out they don’t need a new water heater.
Any plumber Scottsdale trusts will tell you that you need to have your water heater flushed out regularly. Most will recommend once a year, doing this will extend the life of the water heater. If you are experiencing a heater leaking from the bottom it will most likely need replacing. Without a replacement that leak can ruin floors and carpets, causing dangerous mold issues.
Although water heaters are not an absolute necessity to life they sure make things easier. Even in Phoenix when the air temperature sometimes reaches into the hundreds it’s still nice to have a warm shower. Most of us take hot water for granted. Can you imagine doing dishes in a sink full of cold water? The old joke about taking a cold shower isn’t so funny when you have to do it on a daily basis. Have your water heater flushed on a regular basis you will save money and save yourself from a cold shower at the same time.
