Ask a Portland Plumber: Where Did My Hot Water Go?
After a hard day’s work, there is nothing better than hopping into a nice hot shower. When your water heater is on the fritz, that nice hot shower can turn into an icy blast. You might risk a toe or finger in a quality check to see if your water has gone warm yet, but you’ll be wasting time and water waiting for warm water that isn’t coming.
No hot water can be a frustrating problem. Not only because it’s an inconvenience in your daily routine, but it’s also a clear indication that something is seriously wrong with your water heater. A cold shower is a pretty clear sign that something is not quite right, but look for these signs to see if you need your water heater looked at:
- Strange noises coming from your water heater
- Lukewarm water that never gets hot
- Hot water that only lasts for a few minutes
- Water that comes out too hot
- Pools of water that form around the base of the water heater
- Rust and corrosion that forms on the unit
Issues like these can oftentimes be easily ignored or blown off. Having this mindset can be a costly mistake: little warning signs that something is wrong will eventually build up to a major issue. A quick repair today may save you from a major replacement or fix later on.
