First Steps to Take After Your Water Heater Breaks Down

Turn Off Water Heater & Water Supply
Make sure you turn off the power to the water heater and turn off the water supply. You don’t want your heater running while it’s broken.

Drain & Rinse
Connect a hose to the tank (so you don’t make a bigger mess) and open the valve to let the dirty water drain out through the tube. Rinse the water tank with cold water afterwards.

Clean Up
Clean up the area that the water heater damaged. Try to clean ASAP to avoid mold or other problems.

Prevent Future Water Heater Problems!

  • Place a water sensor next to your water heater so you know when there’s a leak. Some new sensors can even connect to your phone and send you a notification. Catching the problem early will reduce the potential for massive damage to your home.
  • Drain and refill the tank annually. This will keep your water heater in better condition.
  • Have your water heater checked by a plumber to help with other issues that can arise.

About Tankless Water Heaters

water heater installation ann arbor mi, water heater repair ann arbor miTankless water heaters, commonly known as “on-demand” water heaters, use high-powered burners, either gas or electric, to heat water almost instantly and send it to your faucets and showers. These heaters take up less space than tank storage heaters and are typically more energy efficient. They can serve many fixtures at one time, depending on:
-          Rating for gallons per minute
-          Average ground water temperature coming in
Prices varies widely depending on the conditions of installation.

About Traditional Water Heaters

water heater installation ann arbor mi, water heater repair ann arbor miTraditional (tank storage) water heaters are the most common type of home water heater in North America. These heaters have an insulated storage tank that can contain 20 to 80 gallons of water. The water is heated inside the tank, then transferred through your plumbing to your faucets. These heaters are powered by natural gas, propane, or electricity. Natural gas models typically use 50% less power than those of the electric variety. Although the initial price can be more expensive for a natural gas model, they are less expensive to use in the long term. Most will still work in the case of a power outage.

Why You Should Call a Plumber

24 hour plumber ann arbor, Emergency plumber ann arbor, Plumber ann arbor, Plumbing companies ann arbor, Plumbing services ann arbor, Plummer ann arborWhen you call a professional plumber, the problems will be taken care of in the right way if you choose the right plumber. Plumbers are experts. They deal with plumbing problems every day, so they’re less prone to making a mistake. They also will know the correct piping to use in each scenario. There are different sizes of piping (and a lot of them) which can easily be mixed up.
Good plumbers do all their work in accordance with the Uniform Plumbing Code. This ensures that your plumbing will be working properly, staying in good working order, and bringing you clean water. When you do it yourself, you could easily stray from these codes without knowing and give yourself bigger problems in the future—not just for your plumbing but potentially with the city inspectors as well.
