Expert Water Heater Replacement
Hot water is a luxury we have become well-accustomed to and nothing quite compares to the shock of a cold shower or the inability to get hot water for your child’s nightly bath. At Triple Crown Plumbing, we provide expert water heater services including troubleshooting, repairs, and installation.
Our master plumbers know how to quickly identify water heater problems and provide fast, quality repairs. It takes a plumber with considerable knowledge and experience to know when a water heater is on its last legs as opposed to a unit that simply needs a professional draining and cleaning. We recommend replacement only when it is necessary, taking care to put your budgetary needs first.

Sometimes people will call in when their tank is making strange noises. This can be the result of sediment building up inside. The solution is to drain out the tank.
The most common issue is an insufficient amount of hot water. A common cause boils down to an undersized unit that can't handle the demand. More serious issues include a broken dip tube or a problem with the supply of gas.
If you are noticing water pooling at the base of your unit, you could have a leak. Inspecting the valves and the temperature of the tank will help determine the source.
Why Should a Water Heater Be Flushed
A water heater needs to be flushed to remove sediment build up. Sediment can cause the following problems:
Sediment will take up space inside the tank and reduce the amount of hot water that is available.
A hot water heater will have to work harder to heat up water when there are layers of sediment crowding the tank.
Sediment can cause the heating element to burn out from overheating.
Mineral sediment buildup can eventually cause the inside of the tank to rusk and leak. If a crack in the tank is severe enough, it could cause the tank to burst.
If your drain valve is clogged with sediment, it will need to be replaced.
How Often Should You Drain Your Water Heater?
A water heater should be drained at least once a year to ensure minimum damage from mineral buildup.For homeowners with hard water issues, the water heater may need to be flushed more than once a year. If a home is equipped with a water softener, flushing the water heater once a year may be sufficient.
