Why Would I Need Water Heater Repair?

The most common thing that affects water heaters is sediment buildup, especially as the water heaters get older. When water is heated, limescale and any other minerals, particularly calcium and magnesium, for along the sides of the tank and the burner. If these minerals are not filtered out of the water heater, they form a sediment barrier that will settle on the burner and seriously affect your water heater’s performance. The best way to keep your water heater safe? Call Active Plumbing and Drain Cleaning for water heater inspection or water filtration!

In addition to inspecting for sediment buildup, you should check your water heater’s burner every now and then. The flame should be blue with yellow tips. If it appears more yellow-orange, this is a sign of incomplete burning which could lead to not only poor water heater performance, but also the production of deadly carbon monoxide! Don’t put your family at risk – if your water heater isn’t burning properly, call Active Plumbing and Drain Cleaning for water heater repair right away!

When Should I Replace My Water Heater?

Most hot water heaters will last around eight to 12 years. Once they’ve been around for this long, they start to lose their efficiency and become more prone to failure. And while most people wait until their water heater has catastrophically failed before shopping around for a replacement water heater, there are benefits to upgrading your unit before it dies!

Water heaters are among the top energy users in your home, in many cases accounting for as much as 25 percent of your home’s energy use. As they get older and less efficient, this number climbs even higher, and the units get more and more expensive to operate.

Don’t wait until your hot water heater fails or becomes inefficient before you consider a replacement. Many options exist today that will not only keep your home running comfortably but also save you money.

Many families with young children are no strangers to having a toy or other objects flushed down the toilet, watching objects ‘disappear’ in the toilet is a fascinating adventure for a toddler. This situation can not only cause a clogged and overflowing toilet but can also damage the pipes and structure, sometimes causing costly repair issues. Even more often is a simple build-up of residue that can happen over time and use. Often, simply plunging a toilet can release this type of clog. If it doesn’t, or if your toilet consistently overflows, then leave it to us to diagnose and solve the underlying issues. We can get your toilet working properly quickly so you can get back to spending time with your family.

A leaking toilet can waste a lot of water and make a noise that keeps you up at night. If you’ve noticed a gurgling, gushing or trickling noise coming from toilet then it might be a sign that you might have a leak. If you have a leaky toilet in your home, the amount of water your household consumes can multiply quickly. You can quickly diagnose a leak by adding a few drops of food coloring to your tank and waiting about 10 minutes. If color appears in the bowl, then you have a leak - and it's time to call Active Plumbing and Drain Cleaning to come out and fix .
