Common Water Heater Problems
Don’t get stuck without hot water in your house. Watch for these common water heater issues and schedule professional repairs as soon as possible:
- Absence of hot water: One of the most obvious – and inconvenient — issues with your unit is when it stops producing hot water. If you own a gas-powered unit, it can be due to an extinguished pilot light that needs to be relit. It can also be due to a damaged heating element.
- Leaking: If your unit is leaking, you should have it inspected by a professional to determine if it can be repaired or if the unit needs to be replaced.
- Odd noises: Loud or odd noises coming from your system can signal a damaged heating element or a buildup of sediment.
- Cracks: Any cracks in the unit should be inspected by a professional to determine if they can be repaired.
What Causes Burst Pipes?
When a pipe bursts at your home, it can lead to massive water damage – quickly! These bursts can be caused by several factors, including:
- Freezing temperatures: Low temps can cause the water inside pipes to freeze and then expand.
- Major clogs: These can cause water pressure to build up and cause pipes to break.
- Aging pipes: Older pipes will corrode, crack, then eventually burst.
- Tree roots: Nearby tree roots can infiltrate your pipes and cause damage.
- Shift: A shift in the earth can wreck pipes.
- Construction: A major construction project can cause damage to pipes.

Signs You Need Professional Drain Cleaning Services
Do you need to hire a professional to clean your drains? Some symptoms that can indicate you need to schedule repairs can include:
- Slow drains: These can indicate a variety of problems, including the early stages of a clog, pipes that have been narrowed due to mineral or grease buildup, or even improper grading of your drainage system.
- Recurring clogs: If you need to clean out hair and other substances from your drain frequently, you might not be removing the entire clog. It can be time to call in an expert!
- Multiple drains that are clogged at one time: Several clogged drains can indicate a severe blockage deep within your main line.
- Foul odor: Bad odors coming from your drains can signal food that’s trapped in your drain or issues with your sewer line.
- Flooding: One of the worst problems associated with clogged drains is a sewage backup. If there is flooding in your basement or near a floor drain, it can indicate a clog and it may just be a matter of time before the drain stops working completely and you end up with contaminated water all over your floor.
