If you notice your hot water supply has changed, you might need us to test your heating elements or thermostats or check for high water pressure. Water heating elements and thermostats can be changed. Should you notice water under or around your water heater, the tank might be leaking. In this case, the water heater needs to be replaced. Your water heater will not last as long if you have hard water that is left untreated. You can view a picture of lime and calcium that we sucked out of a water heater.

High Water Pressure
Houses hooked up to municipal water supplies should have their pressure checked. 50 - 60lbs is appropriate. We have measured over 100lbs locally. If water pressure is too high the pressure relief valve located on the water heater will start to leak. The leaking could cause water damage or your water bill to go up or maybe even loss of hot water.
The picture in our photo gallery shows the pressure expansion tank on left and pressure reducing valve on right -two devices that will keep the water pressure regulated.
The Pressure Expansion Tank and Pressure Reducing Valve.
The pressure expansion tank preserves the life of the pressure reducing valve. Both work together more efficiently than alone.
