Signs That Your Water Heater Needs Repair or Replacement

One appliance that is regularly relied on in a household is the water heater. Whether you’re doing dishes, showering, or running some laundry, a well-working water heater is essential to getting the job done! If your hot water doesn’t seem to be working effectively (or at all), then don’t hesitate to call in our expert and licensed staff here at Stadler Plumbing. We can help you out!

In the meantime, keep your eyes peeled for any signs that your water heater may be faltering. The sooner we spot issues, the better! The following indicators may mean it’s time to call us in.

Problems With Water Temperature

Most of the time, people notice water heater issues when their water won’t stay hot for long periods of time. Other signs of trouble are when your water takes ages to warm up, gets much hotter than normal, or simply doesn’t get hot at all. Basically anything unusual in regards to your water temperature is a red flag and indicates that some professional care may be necessary in the near future.

Strange Noises From The Unit

If you’ve been hearing rumbling or clanking from your water heater, that’s a clear-cut sign of trouble. Sediment builds up as your water heater ages and it hardens over time, which then causes it to bump into the sides of the unit’s interior and make a lot of noise. This is a sign that your water heater is reaching the end of its life. Once this starts to occur, it won’t operate as efficiently, and it could cause damage, as well, should the sediment cause the tank to crack or form holes.

Rusty Water/Discoloration

Turn on just the hot side of your faucet and observe the color of the water. If it is rusty or discolored, then there’s a good chance that your water heater is breaking down. When your system gets old it rusts from the inside, thus affecting the color of your water supply.

That being said, rusty water could have to do with your pipes, meaning your water heater might be just fine. In any case, discoloration is something to be concerned about and our professional team can help you determine the cause and address it.

Water Around The Appliance

Leaks are a clear sign of trouble, so be aware of water around the water heater. If a leak has occurred, your unit won’t run well, and any possessions near the water heater may get ruined, too. Water damage is a frustrating issue to deal with, so call us in at the first sign of trouble. We’ll get you where you need to be in no time!

Other Warning Signs

Other signs of water heater damage are strange odors coming from the system, problems with the pilot, or issues with the main burner. It’s also wise to note your water heater’s age. If it is over 10 years old, then you’ll likely start noticing problems soon, even if nothing is occurring yet.

Any questions? Give us a call. We’re always ready to serve!

Toilet Installation & Replacement

Installing & Replacing Toilets - Macomb County MI- Stadler PlumbingIf the time has come to remodel your bathroom, then you are likely more than ready to get the process started. Picking out new décor and replacing various items can be fun, but knowing when to hire a plumber and when you can tackle the job yourself is not always easy to determine.

Doing The Job Right

If you are taking the time to remodel, you will want to ensure that everything is done just as you want it, so that you can relax in the bathroom of your dreams. A major component of every bathroom is the toilet. This piece can be the defining factor when it comes to other decorating decisions, so picking out the right style and model is important.

With the wide array of bathroom products now available, picking out your new toilet can prove to be time-consuming and costly. This means that the installation process needs to be precise and well thought out, so are you sure to be left satisfied. For these reasons, hiring out may be your best option when it comes to replacing your old toilet. If you attempt it yourself and mess up a few steps, you may be leaving your bathroom with noticeable mistakes, making the entire room look a bit sloppy.

Saving Money Over Time

Other issues with doing it yourself involve extra costs. While tackling projects without hired help may seem like the cheapest option, it often winds up costing more once you purchase the various tools and parts that are needed along the way. On top of this, if you slip up or install something incorrectly, this means more time and money spent on repairs that could have been avoided.

The worst case scenario in a do-it-yourself situation is messing up your plumbing to the point where an expert has to be called in anyway. Save yourself stress by simply hiring out help in the first place. Someone who is trained and certified will be well-versed on the procedures involved when installing new products, as well as the various codes and regulations that need to be followed. Keep it safe and avoid extra hassle by having a professional do things right the first time around.
