Finding someone in Toronto and the GTA to fix your hot water tank sounds easy enough. It’s really about the quality of professional you hire though; not how easy it is to get someone to show up at your home. Here are a few other things you should know about hot water tank repair.
Common Problems & Troubleshooting Your Hot Water Tank
There are always a few things to consider before making the call for any hot water tank repair. First, noise is natural when dealing with hot water tanks. Just because you hear a noise doesn’t mean you need a serious repair or replacement. It could be a sign you just need to flush out your tank. Sediment can often build up inside the tank and clank around. It might sound scary at first, but try flushing it out before panicking. Flushing the tank is also a good idea if you notice the water coming from your taps has a strong rotten egg smell.
Another common misdiagnosis for hot water tank repair might be that your water temperature is getting you a bit hot under the collar. Water coming from your taps that is too hot is definitely a problem, but there is something simple you can check. Take a look at your water heater’s thermostat dial. Using a marker, simply mark where you are starting. Then turn the dial to a cooler setting. Wait a couple hours and see if the issue is all taken care of. If not, you may need help with the pressure relief valve – which should be handled by a professional.
