Below is a list of some of the most common water heater problems seen by our Orange County and Los Angeles plumbers.
Not Producing Enough Hot Water
Many times people call an Orange County or Los Angeles plumber from Jack Stephan because they do have little to no hot water in their home. Often times this problem occurs when there is a malfunctioning thermostat. If the problem is indeed caused by a defective thermostat, then you will need to get a new one.
You should also make sure the pilot light is turned on if you have a gas water heater. If the pilot light is turned off, then your water heater will not heat the water. Additionally, the water heater’s heating element may not be working. The water heater element will need to be replaced if it is not working.
Finally, lack of hot water could also be related to a stopped up vent or flue or you may simply need a larger unit to fulfill your needs.
It is extremely important for you to have safe water in your home or business. As a result, it is imperative to call a professional Los Angeles plumber if you notice the water is discolored. This problem may be caused by a dissolved anode, and a qualified expert will best diagnose the issue at hand.
Water Too Hot
One of the final most common issues our team hears surrounding water heaters is that the unit is producing water that is too hot, which can definitely be a safety issue. You or your family members may suffer scalding burns if the water is too hot. Very hot water could be a sign that your thermostat is not working properly.
