4 Ordinary Types of Water Heater Problems
When it comes to water heater damage, the work of an inexperienced plumber could set you back big-time timewise and financially. Instead, turn to a Stephens Plumbing technician to get the job done right straight away!
No Hot Water
Getting nothing from your hot water knob? If you have an electric water heater, it may be because you have no power or you just need to reset it by pressing the red reset button on its panel. You can always test your heating elements to determine they’re warming up properly too. If you have a gas water heater, ensure the gas valve is open. If it is, the issue could be with the pilot light or burner. If you’ve done as much as you could, hand the task over to the professional water heater repair guys at Stephens Plumbing.
Minimal Amount of Hot Water
If your water does not feel warm enough, we have some ideas you could use to try getting to the bottom of the problem before calling our team of emergency plumbers. The first step should always be to turn up the thermostat on your water heater, especially in the winter months. If your water heater has a tank, the minimal quantity of warm water may be due to a small water tank that cannot hold enough hot water. Or you could have a heating element failure on your hands. If you don’t have a tank, verify how many fixtures your unit can handle so you’re not running too many at once.
Mysterious puddles around your water heater could vanish by simply tightening any loose connections with a wrench or replacing worn valves. However, if it’s coming right from your water heater tank, you should definitely call Stephens Plumbing out to your Batavia home for a look. This could be a sign that your tank is corroding and in need of a replacement immediately or very soon.
A water heater may begin making weird sounds if there is a buildup of minerals on the interior of your tank or heating elements. The strange sounds may be associated with a pressure increase within the tank. As long the collection of minerals is not severe, you can drain your water heater to remove limescale without an emergency plumber. If you are struggling to remove the water in your hot water tank, our staff of plumbers can help you drain your water heater every few months to eliminate loud noises. Keep in mind too that sometimes pipes can be noisy as they expand and contract with the heat.

5 Signs of a Water Leak
Here are five signs that your Batavia home could be experiencing a water leak that needs attention.
Low Water Pressure
A decrease in water pressure coming out of your faucet usually occurs because of mineral buildups and water leaks. If there’s enough water leaking out somewhere, the water in the pipes won’t have enough pressure to push forward quickly. If you notice a drop in water pressure, even if there’s no other water fixture running, have Stephens Plumbing technicians come by for a visit.
Water Stains on Walls & Ceilings
Dark and discolored areas along your walls and ceiling indicate a broken water pipe in your home. Unfortunately, it takes a while for the water leak to grow into a noticeable stain on your walls or ceiling. If you discover a cracked water pipe behind your walls, give our team of emergency plumbers in Batavia an urgent call at (630) 968-0783.
It doesn’t take long for an ignored water leak to develop mold or mildew. Give a water leak enough time and it could become hazardous, toxic black mold. Besides being an eyesore, the spores from these mold can exacerbate allergies, asthma, and other respiratory conditions. Leaks usually develop because of condensation that’s accumulated from uninsulated pipes, dripping pipes, an unsecured washing machine connection, and groundwater basement leaks. If you see mold or smell a musty odor in your home, our emergency plumbers can step in to remove the damaged pipe and wall.
High Water Bills
Extra water leaking out of your pipelines adds up and can really drive up the cost of your water utilities each month. We have a great way to determine whether there are any leaks present in your home! The next time your house is going to be empty for an hour or more, record your water meter measures, leave, and check it again when you get home If they’ve changed, you can call Stephens Plumbing to get to the bottom of it.
Have you stepped on a soft, warped, or stained spot on your bathroom floor? Do you notice loose tiles or damaged caulk in your kitchen?
