A hot water recirculating pump will eliminate your hot water delays. By installing this pump, you will get instant hot water at your faucet and save gallons of water wasted down the drain. They can be real energy hogs if the pipes aren’t well insulated. Therefore, professionals should handle their installation.
Your water heater can function at a much-decreased level before it stops working. You should watch out for signs that the unit is about to fail, such as rusty water, noise, and leaks. You may also notice that you aren’t getting a steady, reliable hot water supply.
Proper maintenance goes a long way toward keeping your water heater running as long as possible. Annually, the water heater should be drained to remove any rust or sediment build-up in the bottom of the tank and have a general inspection or tune-up by a licensed professional at Mr. Drippy Plumbing.
If the water temperature is set too high, you can decrease the set point. In some cases, if the thermostat has failed, you should immediately contact your plumbing contractor at Mr. Drippy Plumbing to get the job done right.
Hard water causes a lot of damage to your water system and pipes, aside from destroying your water heater. The use of softeners has a potentially negative effect on the performance of the anode in the water heater, which can cause a reduction in the life of the water heater. It should be inspected more often and replaced when nearing the end of its useful life.
