Kansas City Plumber Prepares Customers for Common Water Heater Repair Issues

Kansas City based, John the Plumber, educates & updates local residemts about odd noises, leaks, little to no hot water, rusty water and other typical problems.

Kansas City, United States - September 24, 2020 /PressCable/ —

John the Plumber, a Kansas City, Missouri-based residential and commercial plumbing services company boasting more than 30 years of experience, has been hard at work preparing customers for common water heater repair issues they may face, educating them along the way about everything from odd noises to leaks, little to no hot water, rusty water and other typical problems.

Unlike tankless water heaters, say JTP representatives, standard tank-style water heaters use an insulated storage tank that holds anywhere from 30 to 80 gallons of water at all times. And while water heaters are generally very reliable, they occasionally exhibit problems such as little to no hot water delivery, rusty or odor-laden water, odd noises and even leaks. To this end, JTP staff has been advising customers that if they need to inspect their water heater or make any kind of repairs, they should make sure, first and foremost, to turn off the power and/or gas supply.

“Power to an electric water heater can be turned off by switching off the circuit breaker or removing the fuse on the water heater circuit in a home’s breaker box or fuse panel,” explains John W. Hunt, owner of JTP LLC. “From there, the gas supply should be turned off by turning the gas pilot control valve to the ‘pilot’ setting on the water’s gas valve. If necessary, the water supply to the water heater can be shut off by closing the shutoff valve on the cold water pipe coming into the top of the heater tank.

“It is imperative that homeowners do not turn off the water unless the water heater’s power and gas are turned off.”

JTP associates go on to explain that if water is not an agreeable temperature, the water heater could be at the root of the problem, with key things to check on a gas water heater being the pilot, thermocouple and gas control valve. On electric units, homeowners should be looking at the thermostats and heating elements.

When it comes to inadequate hot water, JTP plumbers believe there are several possible issues to address, including the temperature setting, heating elements (with regard to electric heaters only), sediment in the tank and a damaged or disconnected dip tube.

“It can be quite worrisome when one turns on a faucet only to discover discolored water or a horrible odor,” adds Hunt. “Pipe corrosion or bacteria buildup could be the possible perpetrators in these cases.”

Mysterious, unusual noises coming from the basement, meanwhile, could mean the water heater needs attention; a low rumbling or popping noise, according to JTP staff, is the sound of boiling water, and excessive buildup of sentiment in the bottom of the tank is causing the tank to overheat and, in turn, causing the water to boil. In these circumstances, the sediment will have to be removed by flushing the water heater.

Counting whales from space pitched as key to saving them

Oct 29, 2020

PORTLAND, Maine — An aquarium and an engineering firm in Massachusetts are partnering on a project to better protect whales by monitoring them from space. New England Aquarium of Boston and Draper of Cambridge say whale conservation needs new, higher-tech solutions to protect whales from extinction. So, the pair is working together using data from sources such as satellites, sonar and radar to keep a closer eye on how many whales are in the ocean. The effort has an easy to understand name for a project involving complex data and surveillance — the aquarium and firm are calling the project...

US heads to court to build Trump border wall in Texas

Oct 29, 2020

HOUSTON — Three years into Donald Trump's presidency, the U.S. government is ramping up its efforts to seize private land in Texas to build a border wall. Trump's signature campaign promise has consistently faced political, legal, and environmental obstacles in Texas, which has the largest section of the U.S.-Mexico border, most of it without fencing. And much of the land along the Rio Grande, the river that forms the border in Texas, is privately held and environmentally sensitive. Almost no land has been taken so far. But Department of Justice lawyers have filed three lawsuits this month seeking to take...

Space Force will start small but let Trump claim a big win

Oct 29, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs. Space...

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

Oct 29, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...
