Last summer, when I used the living room faucet, I was surprised that the water was scalding hot, and i didn’t need to wait for it to hot up like usual! The temperature was instantly dangerously hot.
I am truly thankful one of the teenagers didn’t get burned.
I opened the door to the basement to check on the water pump plus water boiler plus heard the spray of water; Once I descended the stairs, I found the basement flooded due to a ruptured tepid water heater. I found the shut-off plus was able to stop the flow of water. It’s truly fortunate that I caught the problem when I did. The water boiler could have entirely caused a fire. I called a local plumbing business plus asked them to send a professional serviceman to the home as soon as possible, then my associate and I went for numerous hours with no water. My associate and I couldn’t run any of the sinks, flush toilets, take a shower or start up the washing machine. The plumber evaluated out the situation plus informed me that a modern water boiler was necessary, but he was able to get a modern tank-style boiler installed quite suddenly. The problem was fixed for numerous months, until I used my living room faucet plus found that the water was black. I called the same plumbing business plus explained the problem. I learned that due to the hardness of our water, the anode rod was overwhelmed with minerals plus genuinely worked as a detriment to water quality; Removing the anode rod solved the problem but also voided the warranty of the modern water heater.
