Rocks In Your Heater?

With the winter months just around the corner, your water heater should be ready to handle your hot water needs. If you noticed that your water heater has issues heating your water, there could be several causes. One cause of faulty water heaters that we want to focus on is a build-up of minerals in your water heater. That’s right, your water heater can be susceptible to calcium, and other minerals build-up, causing strain on your water heater and leaving you with cold showers.

How To Spot Mineral Deposits In Your Water Heater

You might be wondering how you can tell if three is a large mineral deposit in your water heater without opening up your heating system. Luckily for you, there are a few obvious signs of mineral deposits in your water heater, the first being your hot water taking a lot longer than usual to heat up. With an excess of minerals, you might also notice that the once quiet water heater is causing a lot of noises, from rattling to banging, which is no good.

Your water heater should be relatively quiet, so if it suddenly springs with life with these sounds, call our professionals. Lastly, mineral deposits can lead to hard water, which is rough on your hair and skin. Hard water can be very abrasive, and a headache on top of the cold air is already drying your skin.

What To Do?

So you noticed your water heater likely has a mineral deposit problem; Now what? Well, the first step is calling our professionals to help fix the problem. We can install a water softener and help flush out your water heater to get rid of excess mineral deposits. On top of flushing out your water heater, we know how to clean up your system to get rid of clinging mineral deposits that can be ruining your water quality.
