The complication was fixed for many months, until I used my bedroom faucet and found that the water was black
Last summer, when I used the bedroom 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 right away dangerously hot. I am entirely thankful one of the kids didn’t get burned. I opened the door to the basement to check on the water pump and water boiler and 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 and was able to stop the flow of water. It’s entirely lucky that I caught the complication when I did. The water boiler could have certainly caused a fire. I called a local plumbing company and asked them to send a professional serviceman to the house as soon as possible. My friend and I went for many hours with no water. My friend and I couldn’t run any of the sinks, flush toilets, take a shower or beginning up the washing machine. The plumber checked out the situation and informed me that a new water boiler was necessary; He was able to get a new tank-style boiler installed quite hastily. The complication was fixed for many months, until I used my bedroom faucet and found that the water was black. I called the same plumbing company and explained the problem. I learned that due to the hardness of our water, the anode rod was overwhelmed with minerals and actually worked as a detriment to water quality, removing the anode rod solved the problem but also voided the warranty of the new water heater.
