When Should I Replace My Water Heater?

According to the Department of Energy, your home's water heater is the third-largest energy expense, which accounts for an estimated 12 percent of your monthly utility bill. Most water heaters last between 10 to 15 years; however, the Department of Energy suggests that units be replaced after 10 years of use since older models typically cost more to operate than newly-installed energy-efficient ones. Additionally, if you notice rust-colored water coming out of your pipes, a water heater leak, have water that isn't warm enough, or hear strange noises coming from your hot water tank, your water heater may need to be replaced.

What are Some Typical Signs of Pipe Leaks?

One of the leading causes of water loss and damage to homes are leaking pipes from sinks, toilets, bathtubs, showers, and outdoor pools. Thankfully, our leak detection experts can detect small pipe leaks hidden behind walls and underneath your house before they turn into a more serious problem. Over time, the build-up of moisture caused by leaks can attract the growth of mildew, mold and harmful bacteria. These factors can affect the air quality in your home and can make you very sick, too.

Typical Signs of Pipe Leaks:

  • Stains on walls or ceilings, combined with a damp, musty smell.
  • Corroded or rusted valves and fittings.
  • Stained or damaged cabinet bottoms found under sinks.
  • Flooring around toilets, sinks, tubs, or other appliances that appear to be stained, cracked or bubbled.
  • An unusually high water bill that doesn't coincide with actual water usage.

What is Drain Build-up? How Should I Deal With This?

Your drains are exposed to different chemicals and substances that can clog up your sinks everyday. In the bathroom, all it takes is a few long strands of hair combined with undissolved bits of soap and toothpaste residue to line your drains with a coating of brownish-black sludge that won't wash down. Kitchen sink drains can easily get clogged with small bits of food and hardened grease.

An easy way to prevent drain build-up is to place a drain filter or strainer over each drain opening in order to catch hair, food particles and other solids before they go down the drain. Hot grease should never be poured down the drain, even if it's flushed down with hot water afterward. The running of hot water doesn't always prevent the hardening of grease within drains. Instead, pour all leftover grease in a disposable can or jar, and then throw it away in the garbage, after the grease has hardened in the container.

At the first sign of a clogged drain, it's a good idea to call for professional drain cleaning services. At James Caccia Plumbing, our skilled technicians offer two types of drain cleaning: one is through the use of a plumber's snake, and the other is through an innovative technique called "hydro jetting". Hydro jetting utilizes high-powered reverse water jets to successfully flush away years of grease, food, hair, and other stubborn particles that commonly build up in your drain pipes.
