Energy Efficient Water Heaters
The hot trend in water heater replacement is purchasing an energy efficient option. Over time this option can save you money on your energy bills, as well as make you feel like you’re helping contribute positively in helping with the global energy crisis. In May it became mandatory that all water heaters sold by manufacturers have a new standard of .62 energy efficiency. This was achieved through adding more insulation in the tank.
Regular energy efficient water heaters shouldn’t be confused with tank-less water heaters, which we don’t typically recommend in the Salt Lake City area because of the type of water we have and the size of homes that are common.

Repair or Replace?
When it comes to your water heater, it can be difficult to know when it’s time to repair or replace it. However, there are some clear signs that can indicate that it’s time for a new water heater:
1. Most water heaters begin to show signs of wear and tear after a decade, even though some well maintained water heaters can last up to 15 years.
2. Another sign your water heater needs replacing is if you notice leaks or rusting around the tank. This can be a sign that the tank has corrosion.
3. If you notice that your water is not as hot as it once was or takes longer to heat up, this could be a sign your water heater needs to be replaced.

Why do I run out of hot water so quickly?
Depending on the age and type of your heater there are a couple of reason you may be running out so quickly.
Electric water heaters commonly have 2 elements that heat the water. The top element and the lower element. Chances are if you are running out of hot water quickly the lower element is not working and only the top portion of the tank is being heated. If the top element stops working, then neither will heat and you will have no hot water.
There is also a reset button on an electric water heater that can trip. If the reset button is tripped that is an indicator that there is a more serious problem.
If you have a gas hot water tank the most common reason is the dip tube. The dip tube is a piece of pipe that directs the cold water to the bottom of the tank to get heated. Over time this dip tube can get shorter causing the cold water to mix with the hot causing temped water.
Is it safe to use chemical drain cleaners?
Drain cleaners are very toxic. If you ever look on the back of the product you will notice at least 3 warning labels. These are not very good products to have laying around your house especially if you have kids or pets. These toxic chemicals are also very bad for your pipes, causing them to deteriorate from the inside out. If this happens your drain lines will need to be replaced. There are enzymes and friendly bacteria products that will keep grease and sludge from building up inside of your pipes.
What can I put in my garbage disposal?
Garbage disposals are not macerators and will only break up soft debris. Mashed potatoes, cooked carrots, eggs etc. are ok to put in the disposal. Things like bones, coffee grounds, egg shells or any hard product will wear the blades and jam the disposal. You should always run water to the disposal to help break down the foods and flush through the drain.
Why does my toilet keep running?
This is probably the most commonly asked plumbing question. In most cases it is caused by the flapper not closing on or making a proper seal around the flush valve. If the flapper is not closing, then jiggle the handle and that will normally fix the issue. If the flapper is worn out and not properly sealing, then the flapper needs to be replaced.
