The water heater is one of the easiest things to forget about. It rarely ever needs attention, outside of its regular maintenance schedule. Still, it is one of the most important fixtures in the modern home. It is loved not only for the convenience it adds but because of how much it’s needed for the overall sanitation of the home. When the water heater goes down, nearly the entire house goes down with it. That’s why it’s so important to have a plumber you can trust to arrive as soon as possible and get the problem fixed.

Signs You Need To Replace Your Water Heater
If you own a water heater, it is important to know what signs to look for that there might be something wrong with it. Luckily, it is usually pretty clear when a water heater needs to be repaired or replaced because it will stop producing hot water. However, this isn’t always the first sign. Therefore, if you are aware of other signs of a faulty water heater, you might be able to have a professional come out before other major problems occur.
That said, here are a few other signs that it is time to replace your water heater:
- It produces hot water but not very much
- Inconsistent water temperatures
- The water heater is getting old for its lifespan
- The water heater starts to make noises when it turns on
- You notice rusty water coming out of the tap
- You notice puddles around the unit
It is important for the safety of those in the household that broken water heaters get replaced right away. If homeowners are aware of the above-stated signs, and they actively check for these signs in their water heater, they could have the problem replaced before they even run out of hot water!
What’s Clogging Your Pipes and How To Fix It
Depending on where the clog occurs can tell a person a lot about what is clogging their pipes. If the clog is in the outdoor pipes, the clogs could come from mud, twigs, trash, leaves, and other outside debris. This is especially common during and just after a rainstorm. If the problem is with the indoor piping system, the culprit is usually something like:
- Food scraps
- Coffee grounds
- Too much toilet paper
- Kids toys
- Feminine care products
Drain cleaning is by far the best option to remove the main problem and many other smaller clogs that you might not have noticed! The fast, high-pressure has a way of cleaning out entire plumbing systems with just one service.
