Why a Burst Pipe Is a Plumbing Emergency
One of the most damaging plumbing emergencies you can suffer at your house is a burst pipe. While initially, you might think a burst pipe will leave you with minimal damage as only a small amount of water trickles out, the leak can soon get much worse. When the hole expands it can leave hundreds of gallons of water flooding your home. This can cause water damage to the walls, insulation, and electrical wiring. Eventually, this can even lead to the formation of mold and mildew.
Common Water Heater Problems
You rely on your water heater to enable you and your family to take hot showers, do laundry, wash dishes, and more. This can cause an inconvenience when your unit malfunctions. Some common issues your unit might encounter can include:
- Lack of hot water: Perhaps the most obvious – and common – issue with your unit is a lack of hot water. For gas-powered water heaters, this could be due to an extinguished pilot light which can simply be relit. It could also signal a severely damaged heating element that needs to be replaced.
- Leaking: If your unit is leaking, consult a plumber to determine if the unit can be repaired or if it should be replaced.
- Excess noise: If you hear loud noises coming from the unit it could signal a damaged heating element or a buildup of sediment inside the unit that needs to be removed by a professional.
- Cracks: If you notice cracks in your unit, have a plumber inspect them to determine if they can be repaired or if your system should be replaced.
