How To Know When It’s Time To Replace Your Water Heater

The average water heater is designed to last about 15-20 years, and that’s if you maintain it. However, many people ignore their water heater until it’s too late. Here are signs that your water heater is starting to fail and that you need to call a water heater maintenance company for help.

  • Cloudy Water
  • Rust Colored Water
  • Tank Corrosion
  • Lukewarm Water
  • Banging, Clanging or Gurgling Sounds
  • Water Pooling

If you notice any of these issues with your water tank, it’s time to call in a professional plumbing contractor for help because your water heater is in danger of failure.

Do You Have Frequently Clogged Drains? Here’s Why!

Clogged and slow drains are common among homeowners, but for some people, clogs seem to develop more frequently. One of the main reasons people experience frequently clogged or slow drains is putting food -- specifically grease and fat -- down the kitchen drain. Another common cause of frequent clogs is hair that gets into the bathroom drains. While most people want to save a few bucks and use an over the counter drain cleaner, those can prove to be more costly in the long run because they can ruin your pipes.

If you have frequent clogs, you may need a drain cleaning company to come in and give you a professional cleaning, which is safer for your pipes and does a better job than any chemical could.
