Beware This Tankless Water Heater Problem

Monday, December 11th, 2017

Home gas-fired boiler. The installation of gas equipment. Heating in the house.Storage tank water heaters are the conventional water heater, found in most homes throughout the country. They’re large, noticeable, and depending on their location can be pretty noisy too. That being said, it’s fairly easy to remember that this big system needs service and maintenance from time to time. During that maintenance, the water heater is often flushed, as mineral buildup (scaling) occurs and threatens the integrity of the system. Scaling is noticeable in a tank water heater because it leads to a clanging noise, and causes issues with pressure, temperature, and corrosion.

What many people don’t realize, is that tankless water heater models can experience this same problem, and therefore need maintenance just as much as their storage tank counterparts. If you haven’t scheduled tankless water heater maintenance in the past year, it’s time to give a professional Parker, CO plumber a call. In the meantime, read on to learn more about this problem.

How Can I Repair Plumbing Leaks on My Own?

Wednesday, February 25th, 2015

Plumbing leaks are one of the more common problems that you may encounter in your home. Many of these leaks remain hidden behind drywall and floors, and only give subtle indications that they are occurring (stains on the wall, higher water bills, warped wood). There are times when you will have a much more obvious leak, usually one that starts in the plumbing underneath a sink.

We understand that many homeowners have a strong “do-it-yourself” drive and want to find ways to fix common troubles around the house on their own. In this spirit, our Parker, CO plumbing professionals at APC Plumbing & Heating have some steps you should follow that will get your pipes fixed fast and right, with little hassle and almost no mess.

  • First, shut off any water flowing to the leaking pipe. You can’t always do this, but if you have a leaky pipe under a sink, make sure no more water goes down the drain and stuff a cloth into the drain if it doesn’t have a cover or stopper.
  • Second, put down some newspapers under the area where the leaking is occurring to help prevent extra water damage.
  • Third, put a bucket under the leak to capture continuing water drips.
  • Fourth, pick up the phone and call APC Plumbing & Heating and arrange for a plumber to come to your house to fix the leak.

Yes, it really is that easy! Instead of fumbling around with different wrenches for a few hours while reading a guide you printed out on the Internet, only to end up inadvertently damaging your pipes and creating more leaking, you can have the problem fixed fast and with the assurance that it will remain fixed. All you have to do is pick up the phone and call for someone with training and the right tools to repair your pipes. If you want something done right in plumbing, have a professional plumber do it.
