If you’re craving a hot shower but your plumbing isn’t cooperating, it’s time to call Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.
Cleaning up those branches and other debris left from Hurricane Ian is hot work and, when you’re finished, you’re looking forward to a long, hot shower or a long soak in a hot tub. Unfortunately, your plumbing isn’t cooperating. The best you can get is a tepid flow that does nothing to help erase your aches and pains.
It certainly sounds as if you’re having trouble with your water heater. And there are several reasons for that. The first, of course is age. If your water heater is old, it might simply need to be replaced.
The next most likely cause is a leak.
“Before hot water reaches your taps and shower heads, it needs to spend some time in your water heater. This appliance, which can be either gas- or electric-powered, takes the cold water that enters your home from your well or utility company and cooks it until it gets hot. It’s akin to an electric tea kettle,” according to homeserve.com.
Homeserve.com adds, “Obviously, if your water heater is leaking, it will never fill with water so it won’t have anything to warm. To see if this is the case, simply examine the area around the water heater to see if it is wet. If so, you’ll likely need to replace the unit, but you can also call in a pro for a second opinion and to see if it is fixable. Sometimes leaks can happen around fixtures on the water heater, and if so, the solution might be as simple as replacing them.”
If that’s not the issue and your water heater runs on gas, you might have a gas leak or broken thermocouple. An electric heater could have a faulty breaker or heating element or simply have reached its limit.
