Last week, we talked about the most common issues with water heaters, namely, having no hot water or not enough hot water. While these are what we most often see with our water heater repair calls in Fort Collins, there could be other issues with your water heating system, such as:

Dirty/Smelly Water

It’s always concerning when your water is a brown, rusty, dirty color, especially because you don’t often have an idea of what could be in the pipes to make your water look like that. The issue with discolored water is frequently due to dissolved anodes in your hot water pipes. Due to the prolonged exposure to heat and moisture, many times these metal pipes begin to rust, and the water flow picks the rust up, infiltrating your water.

This is a very dangerous problem and should always be handled by professional plumbers. Because we have years of experience both in plumbing and in hot water heater repair, we are Northern Colorado’s choice to solve this issue.
