For example, if you have very bad smelling water coming from your faucets, this may be a result of bacteria having built up in your water heater. You may need your entire system flushed, or other parts replaced to completely eradicate the threat. You could attempt to turn up the water temperature to over 150 degrees, and/or add peroxide to it. Neither will be harmful to you, and will help to fight off the bacteria. Once your Miami plumbing repair experts arrive, we will be able to take it from there.

If you are not experiencing any hot water at all, you may have a hefty build up of sediment in your system. It may also mean that your water heater may just need to be reset. Flip the proper breaker, and push the reset button. Call Bob McDonald Plumbing if this does not have any effect. We will need to come take a proper look at your Miami water heater to determine the cause behind it not working.

Water heaters can also slowly leak, eventually causing a lot of damage. New sensors from FloodMaster are a good investment. They are installed at the base of your heater, and detect dripping water. Once noticed, they can automatically shut off the water feed to the tank. If you have one of these sensors, and it goes off, but sure to call us immediately. A leaking water heater can lead to many problems, and only our professional Miami plumbing service may be able to help you. Call 24/7 for any emergency!
