Why is My Water Heater Delivering Rusty Water?

The sacrificial anode system prevents the interior of the water heater from rusting, so that is usually the culprit.

A sacrificial rod is placed in the center of the tank to collect all of the free radicals in the water. These are rough oxygen atom electrons released in the heating process. The released oxygen combines with the material in the anode instead of the steel tank. This causes the anode to wear down and drop a solid precipitate into the tank. This sediment builds up at the bottom of the tank and can cause everything from poor water heating efficiency to a sulfur smell coming from the tap. The best way to prevent this is to flush the system at least once a year.

The experts at Plumbing Solutions have been working on water heaters for decades, and in that time we have worked with every make and model available. If you are experiencing water that looks or smells like rust, call our team for a quick diagnosis.

Water Heater Replacement & Installation

If your water heater is older or is beyond repair, then it’s time to replace it. Some homeowners try to avoid it so they won’t have to incur the upfront expense, but you will see several benefits from a new unit. Your energy efficiency will improve, you won’t have to worry about those annoying cold shots of water, and your water bills will even out. 

We also offer new water heater installation. Adding a secondary water heater to your home is a great way to ensure consistent supplies in larger homes, or homes with larger families. We can also install water heaters in new construction.

At Plumbing Solutions, we offer installation of both tanked and tankless water heaters. Each type of water heater has their own unique benefits, so be sure to speak with a specialist before making a decision. 

All of our water heater installations are backed by manufacturers warranties, and we may also be able to offer additional warranties on parts and labor, depending on the model you choose. Please call today to learn more about your water heater installation options. 

Water Heater Maintenance

While not all problems can be avoided, they can be identified before something catastrophic happens. Take the thermostat, for example. A stuck thermostat can cause your heating element or gas control valve to be stuck in an open position. This is not only a huge waste of energy, it also makes you much more likely to scald yourself on hot tap water. In addition, a stuck thermostat in combination with a faulty temperature and pressure release valve can cause the water heater to explode! The best fix for a malfunctioning thermostat is a simple replacement that usually costs under $100.
