Common Signs Of Trouble

Problems With Your Water Heater We Can Help - Detroit MI - Stadler Plumbing & HeatingNot sure what to look for? There are a few common issues that a homeowner will notice when their water heater is in need of repair or replacement. One issue is rust-colored water, which indicates your tank is rusting from the inside. When this starts, the deterioration eventually lead to leaks. This will cause your water heater to function less efficiently, and you’ll face water damage throughout the area where the tank is stored.

Another sign of a struggling water heater is loud noises from the appliance. As a unit ages, the chance of sediment buildup increases significantly in the bottom of it. When the sediment hardens, it often hits the sides of the water heater, causing you to hear a bunch of clanging and banging. Unfortunately, this is a clear-cut sign that your water heater is on a downward slope to running less efficiently. It also increases the risk of more damage to your heater, as the sediment cause holes and leaks.

Obviously, any signs of water around the water heater should not be ignored. Call us immediately when you encounter issues, and we can evaluate where the leaks are coming from and advise you on the appropriate steps for resolving the issue. Our team will be happy to work with your preferences and budget to find the best solutions for you!

Do You Need A 2nd Water Meter?

If you’ve noticed an increase in your water bills the last few months, you’re not alone. As the temperatures continue to rise, there is also an increase in water usage. Between watering the plants, running the sprinklers, and letting the kids and pets have some water fun, it can all add up quickly to hike up your water bills.

Unfortunately, water usage tend to increase in the summer, and there’s not a lot you can do to cut back. However, the licensed and experienced team at Stadler Plumbing have a simple solution that could help save you some money this summer and for years to come. Install a 2nd water meter, and you’ll soon notice a decrease in your monthly water bills!

So, How Does That Work?

How would installing another meter reduce payments? Well, when the water company calculates your water usage, they take into account that the water going back into the sewer has to be treated. Fees for this service are then added based on your bill.

When it comes to outdoor water use, none of it is going back into the sewer so there’s not a sewage fee. Unfortunately, the water company has no way to distinguish how much of your water goes into the sewer and how much is used in your yard, so they’re forced to charge the fees based on the entire usage amount.

However, this is not the case if you install a 2nd meter. This meter will only track the amount of water being used outdoor, meaning you won’t have to pay any unnecessary fees such as the sewage fee. If you have lots of plants, a big yard, or a pool, this is especially a wonderful solution for you! These devices make a huge difference for families all throughout our service area, and we’d love to set one up at your house. Call today to learn more!
