The water heater is a vital part of your home’s plumbing system. Water heaters provide the household with much needed hot water for showers, cleaning dishes, and washing clothing and linens. You need to choose a water heating system that not only provides you with enough hot water, but that will also be cost-effective and energy-efficient.

Take a look at a few frequently asked questions about Water Heaters.

Q: What are the signs of a broken water heater?

A: You’ll most likely see leaking pipe connections and water pooling under the tank. You might also see rusty water coming from hot water taps – as this is often due to the aging pipes in the unit. You’ll also hear rumbling, banging or popping sounds.

Q: What to do when your water heater breaks? 

A: Give Leak Geeks a call at (817) 330-6550, then if you have a gas water heater shut off the gas. If you have an electric model, throw the switch at the circuit breaker. Turn off the tank’s main water line. Lastly, drain your water heater.

Q: When to replace your water heater? 

A: Ask yourself these questions: How old is your water heater? Are you seeing rusty water coming from your water heater? Do you hear rumbling and noise? Have you seen water around your water heater? If you answered yes to any of the questions, it may be time to replace your water heater. Avoid the disruption and damage of a failing water heater and make sure to call a plumber as soon as you see any of these occur to your water heater.
