Does Your Water Heater Sound Like A Popcorn Popper? This is a sign of excessive sediment buildup in the water heater tank. Not only will sediment cause this noise, but it will reduce the efficiency of your hot water heater. Titan Plumbing Service of Fort Worth, Texas can diagnose your water heater and determine if cleaning is cost effective or a water heater replacement is in order.
Titan Plumbing Service has diagnosed water heater issues for its clients in Southlake, Westover Hills and North Richland Hills. Many times it is more cost effective to let us do a new water heater installation as opposed to performing a thorough cleaning. The average life span for a water heater is between 10 to 12 years. If a water heater tank is drained at least yearly, chances are Titan Plumbing Service can simply drain the water heater tank and remove the sediment.
In severe cases when your water heater is sounding like a popcorn machine it will be more cost effective to replace the hot water heater. Normally the sediment has built up so badly that it cannot be removed in a cost effective manner. Not to mention it can actually cause the glass lining to crack and lead to a leaking water heater tank. This sound will be heard in either an electric water heater or a gas water heater.
Residential water heaters do not provide an access port for a thorough cleaning, the access ports are very small and cleaning a residential water heater can take hours, thus the reason for a new water heater installation.
In many cases when Titan Plumbing Service replaces a water heater we install a sediment filter prior to the water heater, this will prolong the life of the hot water heater and reduce the sediment buildup.
A Bradford White water heater as well as a Rheem water heater is manufactured to reduce sediment buildup, however they will not completely eliminate the sediment. Did you know that a Bradford White water heater is the only water heater that is made in the USA? Call Titan Plumbing Service, we will inspect your water heater and give an estimate for sediment removal or replacement.
