Reasons to Schedule a New Hot Water Heater Installation

    Rusty Colored Water - Steel tanks and pipes are known to rust and corrode, forming holes and leaks. If brown-tinged water is flowing out of your faucets, rust in the water heater is most likely the reason. Both old and new water heaters can develop rust, and this problem may call for a water heater replacement if the rust buildup and leaking are extensive.


    High Energy Bills - Rising costs to your utility bills may indicate that you have an inefficient plumbing system. If your usage hasn't changed, but your energy bills continue to increase, a good option is to have our plumber determine if your water heater is the source of the problem. If a water heater repair seems too costly to justify, especially if the unit is old, then it is time to purchase a new water heater instead, and your energy bills will return to a reasonable cost.


    Leaking Water Heater - There are many reasons water might be pooling under your water heater. It can be from Loose Fittings and Connections, Broken Temperature and Pressure or T&P Valve, Broken Drain Valve, and could be The Tank Itself. If no other source can be identified on the outside of your water heater, it is most likely an internal problem. Problems within your water heater are generally caused by age and deterioration and result in water leaking from the bottom of the tank. The only fix to this problem is to replace your water heater with a new one.

    Insufficient Heating - If your water heater isn't heating the water in your home properly, you will notice this during a bath, shower, or while doing the dishes. Let’s face it, sitting in a cold bath is no fun for anyone. This problem can be caused by the build-up of sediment in the water heater's storage tank. When the water becomes warm, the minerals separate from the liquid and sink to the bottom of the storage tank, forming a barrier between the burner and the water. The heating element will struggle to heat the water as the sediment builds up. This can lead to your water heater failing to operate entirely. Therefore, if you suspect this is happening, you should have your plumber address the problem as soon as possible.

    Many Costly Fixes  - Occasionally you may need to hire a plumber to fix a hot water heater component, but if it seems like you're scheduling repairs multiple times a year, then a replacement water heater is a good investment. Although a new water heater has a higher cost than an initial repair, frequently fixing it will add up to cost much more, and they will likely continue until your water heater is replaced.

Is Your Hot Water Tank Leaking?

Water heaters are known for propagating the illusion of a leak. Your water heater will typically have many other plumbing pipes, fixtures, and elements surrounding it that could be leaking. So before jumping to conclusions, clean up any standing water and closely examine the surrounding pipes and other plumbing elements close to your water heater. If the small puddle of water never returns, you have nothing to worry about because these puddles are generally caused by condensation. Water heaters and their surrounding parts are prone to condensation, which over time, can gather and create a small puddle of water on your basement floor. However, if the puddle does consistently return and no sources can be identified, your water heater is most likely the cause of the leak.

What To Do If Your Hot Water Tank Leaks

Step 1) Turn Off The Power

Once you determine your water heater is the cause for a leak whether by close examination or a very obvious leak, it is recommended that you turn off the power supply to your water heater.


How to Turn Off an Electric Water Heater
Go to your home's circuit breaker box and switch off the breaker for your electric water heater.


How to Turn Off a Gas Water Heater
Located on your water heater there should be an on/off switch or dial controlling the power to your water heater.


Step 2) Shut Off Water

Normally your heat is set to 52°C, the water within your water heater is very hot and dangerous and can result in serious injury from just indirect contact.

It is important that after shutting the power off to your water heater that you turn off any water flow as well to ensure your safety.


Turn off the cold water shut-off valve located just above your water heater. Be sure you can get to this valve safely if you have a major leak, as it can result in first or second-degree burns and injuries.

To avoid possible injury in the case of a significant leak, locate the main shut-off valve to your home and close it to stop any water flow to your water heater. Then contact us to come over and inspect your heater and recommend the next step.

The Top 5 reasons you should hire a professional to install your water heater:


1) Risk of Fire and Possible Explosion

Many water heaters in the lower mainland use natural gas. Natural gas is extremely flammable, so even one mistake during installation can cause a serious fire or even an explosion. Doing your own installation is not worth putting your family’s lives at risk, not to mention the damage that this can cause to your home.

2) Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Ventilation is vital for gas burning water heaters. When there isn’t enough airflow, carbon monoxide builds up. Carbon monoxide poisoning is a medical emergency and people exposed to high levels of carbon monoxide risk death or at the least permanent brain damage. Carbon monoxide is an odorless gas, so if there were a leak, you wouldn’t be able to detect it (unless you have a functional carbon monoxide detector). Even a seemingly small mistake can have serious impacts when it comes to installing products that use natural gas. We always recommend hiring us for this reason. We are experienced and licensed to perform this type of installation.


3) Home Re-Sale Value

When the time comes for selling your home, if you installed the water heater yourself, you will have to pay to get it inspected and permitted. If it fails to pass inspection requirements, this can mean some fixes and maybe even re-installation. We are sure you don’t wish to end up paying twice. You don’t need this stress and inconvenience while trying to sell a home. So have a pro install it the first time and you will never suffer this worry.


4) Product Knowledge

When you talk to salespeople in-store or online they are typically not water heating professionals. They may know some info on the subject and have decent intentions, but they can not match the product knowledge of a trained and licensed plumber. In order to get the water heater that best meets your home’s needs, you need to ask a professional. Not all water heaters are created equal and we will point you in the right direction on what system will suit your size of home and family.


5) Peace of Mind

When you go with our licensed plumber, you’re not just purchasing a job well done, you are getting peace of mind for you and your family. It’s a relief to know that you won’t be faced with property damage, loss of health or life, or any insurance issues if you decide to sell your home. It is never worth the risk just to save a few dollars. Give yourself peace of mind and call our Port Coquitlam plumbing professionals to install your hot water heater.
