water heater installs and repairs
Alberto Plumbing specializes in water heater installation and repairs. Water heaters have a life span of 10 to 15 years. You can find the. manufacture year and serial number on the upper portion of your water heater. Although some newer water heaters are labeled with the manufacturing date, some older models may not display this information. To interpret the serial number you can consult the water heater manufacturer's website.
If your water is a rusty color, this means the water heater is rusting away on the inside. A rusting water heater will eventually leak or even burst. Other signs that may indicate your water heater needs repair or simply needs to be replaced:
Particles in your water or a rust-colored water
Water that's too hot or goes cold quickly
Rare noises or sounds coming from the water heater system
Pools of water beneath the water heater
Long wait for hot water when you turn on the tap
What is Hard Water?
When it rains, the water coming out of the sky is soft, meaning it lacks a high mineral content. However, when it drains through the ground to wind up in rivers and lakes, it picks up dissolved minerals such as magnesium and calcium, among others. These minerals make the water hard.
Effects of Hard Water:
Hard water causes mineral buildup in your water heater, which means it runs less efficiently, costing you more money to operate.
Hard water also leaves mineral deposits around fixtures like faucets and showerheads. Also, mineral buildup in appliances can cause them to fail prematurely.
Hard water prevents soap and detergent from entirely dissolving, which means you end up with water spots on your dishes and utensils, dull hair, stiff clothes, and dry skin.
If you have hard water, it can wreak havoc on your appliances and leave clothes feeling stiff and scratchy. Hard water isn’t unhealthy, however it makes life inconvenient. Fortunately, whole home water softeners fix hard water problems.
Water Softeners - the solution for hard water:
Now that you know about hard water and some of its effects on the quality of your water let’s look at water softeners and how they make your water soft and more pleasant to use. Resin tanks within the water softener contain thousands of resin beads charged with sodium ions. When hard water moves through the system, these beads attract the magnesium and sodium ions from the hard water and exchange them for sodium ions, which makes the water soft.
Don't wait if your tank is leaking, you need to call a professional ASAP. Alberto Plumbing has extensive knowledge and experience to troubleshoot and diagnose a water heater problem and water softeners installs.
