Water is of the utmost importance in every household and business. Think about it – the human body itself is made up of mostly water. We need to stay hydrated to reach our full mental and physical potential. And, let’s face it, if there’s no hot water at home, strange smells will start to take over pretty fast! Yes, water truly is the stuff of life, so when you have hot water system issues, you don’t want to delay getting them fixed.
For a layman, it can be pretty difficult to pinpoint where the issue is. Yes, you might hear or see a drip coming from somewhere, but how can you be entirely sure in terms of what the problem is and how to fix it? When it comes down to it, engaging the services of a licensed plumber to attend to your hot water repairs for you is the best way forward. It’s also best practice to get in touch with your chosen contractor to ensure they understand your specific system. For example, if you currently have or want a Rheem instant hot water system, then your plumber of choice needs to be well-versed in all aspects of these.
You see, when you choose a plumber who has a broad knowledge of his trade and of the various makes and models of hot water systems on the market, you’ll minimise the downtime of your plumbing system (thank goodness!) You will also (hopefully) prevent too much damage to the rest of your plumbing if you act rapidly. So, taking all of this into account, we’ve put together this blog to shed some light on hot water issues you may face. Also, if you’re reading this because you’ve an urgent problem with your water, just get in touch so we can attend to your issue without delay.
You’d be surprised at how well your nose can work for you when it comes to your plumbing. Seriously! So, it’s a good idea to have a good old sniff of your shower before you get washed in the morning. If you do notice any weird smells (rotten egg anyone?) then it’s time to get your system checked by a professional. Generally speaking, bad smells are the result of either a gas leak (emergency) or by debris in your pipes. Either way, it’s likely that you probably won’t know what the problem is yourself, so you should always be on the safe side and call the plumber as soon as possible. Gas leaks are incredibly dangerous. You need to protect you and your family.
Sometimes there are no issues at all, then other times, you’ll notice some weird inconsistency that seems completely out of the ordinary.
