Why is my water coming out a weird color?

Signs Your Water Heater Needs Maintenance


Trinity Water Heater RepairThere are many signs that a water heater in your home may need maintenance or may even need to be replaced. A water heater is a very important appliance within a home that needs to be kept up and taken care of in the event that there are some slight or major problems to ensure amenities such as showers, laundry and things of that nature could still be possible.

Signs such as noticing a temperature drop or an increased amount of time it takes for your water to heat up while showering or using any other water source in your home could be due to your water heater needing to have something as little as a temperature adjustment to a problem in the pipes that needs to be looked at by your plumber.

Signs such as your hot water turning a red, rusty color when in use is very common in water heaters. Sediment, also known as calcium carbonate which is a present mineral in water, collects at the bottom of the tank when the water is heated up causing evaporation to occur and leaving the solid mineral behind. This type of problem could be an easy fix such as calling a plumber to come clean the tank, or could be a bigger problem depending on how long you wait to get it looked at after the problem has been noticed.

Another sign of a problem with your water heater is leaking pipes. If you notice leaking pipes, you should call your plumber right away to ensure the problem will not get worse. It is very important to keep your water heater up to date and properly maintained to prevent small problems from turning into big problems and could also save you a lot of money in the long run.
