Common water heater problems

One call to us and we will solve all of your problems.  One of the most common problems that water heater have is the pilot not staying lit.  Simply follow the instructions on the front of the heater for re lighting.  If the pilot still won’t light or stay lit the problem may be more serious.  Click here or call 909-483-1231 for all of your Rancho Cucamonga plumbing solutions.  The problem could be the thermocouple.  The thermocouple is a safety device.  It’s job is to assure that in the event that the pilot goes out no gas will go to the pilot or the main burner.  Just call us for all of your Rancho Cucamonga water heater repair needs.  The thermocouple is positioned so that the flame of the pilot is always hitting it.  While the flame is hitting the thermocouple it generates a small electrical charge.  This electrical charge tells the control valve that it is safe to send gas to the pilot and to the burner.  If the thermocouple fails the control valve shuts down and your pilot goes out and won’t stay lit.  One call to us and we will solve all of your Rancho Cucamonga water heater problems.  We have trained technicians that will quickly diagnose and solve your plumbing problem.

Another common water problem is the thermostatic control valve can wear out.  This valve is the brains of the unit.  It controls all of the function of the heaters.  The main function is to regulate the temperature of the water.  Just call us to solve all of your Rancho Cucamonga plumbing problems.  If the hot water in your house is not hot enough the problem could be that the temperature is not set to a high enough setting.  This is a simple repair.  Just turn the dial up to a hotter setting.  If this does not fix the problem simply call us at 909-483-1231 for all of your Rancho Cucamonga plumbing solutions. If this does not solve the problem it could be the thermostat has gone out on the heater and the control valve will need to be replaced.

We are the Rancho Cucamonga plumbers more people rely on.  Sometimes people complain that their heaters are making rumbling noises.  This noise can be load and sound very ominous.  The problem is caused by an excess buildup of sediment in the heater.  The sediment builds up and traps water between the layers.  When the sediment heats up the trapped water escapes and causes this noise.  One call to us and we will solve all of your problems.

Warning- heaters run on gas and have complex safety systems all Repairs on your equipment are better left to a professional plumber.  Please don’t take chances with your safety or the safety of your family.

Upgrades

There are a number of requirements for water heater that are required by the plumbing code.  Every unit is required to be strapped for earth quake safety.  These straps have to be installed within the top 18” and the bottom 18” of the unit.  For Rancho Cucamonga residents we would be happy to install these straps if your system needs them.

All water heaters in the garage are required to be 18” off the ground. This is to keep the burner away from any combustible materials.  We install a nice metal platform to bring it up to code. Heaters also have to have a temperature and pressure relief valve installed. This is another safety device which prevents to much pressure from building up in the heater.  The pipe needs to be run to the outside.  On heaters we are happy to install the valve or piping to bring the heater up to code.

New Equipment

Rancho Cucamonga Plumbing provides and installs all sizes of gas and electric tank and tankless units.  Tank heater come in sizes from 20 gallon to 100 gallon.  Most homes have 40 or 50 gallon heaters.  These new heaters are  very energy efficient.  The brand we prefer is Bradford White.  Our experience with these types has been very good.  

Tankless heaters have no storage and rely on a very hot burner to supply on demand.  We can retrofit a tankless heater in exchange for your tank style heater.  These tankless heaters are a nice upgrade for large families or anyone who needs endless hot water.
