Clear Signs of Corrosion in Your Water Heater
Corrosion in water heaters is often a result of the chemical reaction between the minerals in the water and the metals in the tank. This can lead to more significant problems, such as reduced efficiency, clogs in the system, and even complete failure of the appliance. Read on as A.M. Plumbing & Rooter sheds light on the unmistakable signs of corrosion in your water heater.
Rusty water coming from your water heater is one of the most apparent indications that rust and scale have built up in the tank. When corrosion attacks the tank’s interior, it causes flakes of rust to mix with the water supply. If the water flowing from your tap has a brown, orange, or red hue, don’t think twice about seeking professional water heater repair in Escondido, CA.
Corrosion weakens the tank’s structure, making it prone to leaks or even a full-on rupture. If you notice puddles near the base of your hot water heater, shut off its power and call your local plumber immediately. Resolving the issue as soon as possible can prevent costly water damage in your home.
How is Corrosion in Water Heaters Addressed?
If you’ve observed the above signs, acting quickly and contacting expert water heater services should be your priority. A certified plumber can advise you on the best course of action, which may include replacing parts or components or replacing the water heater system entirely. Installing a water softener may also be necessary to reduce the amount of corrosive minerals in your water supply.

Here's What Our Customers Are Saying About Us.
This afternoon we found a leak after disconnecting our refrigerator. We called A.M. Plumbing. Their response time was excellent. They arrived to our house within an hour after calling them. When the plumber got to the house, he was able to rapidly diagnose and fix the problem. He was very professional, did a great job and they charged us a very reasonable fee. I would recommend A.M. Plumbing to anyone that needs plumbing repairs. Thank you, again, for a job well done!
I have called A.M. plumbing twice. Both times the service was excellent. He was able to talk to me about the problem and offer his recommendations. I found him to be trustworthy and reliable, which is what I am looking for in a plumber. I would highly recommend A.M.Dan Steele
Alex and his team are by far the easiest to work with! From the time I spoke with Kristen(sp?) to the time the job was complete they spoke to me like a person and not like I'm an idiot. I had a whole house repipe and an awesome never run out of hot water tankless water heater installed. They were professional and cleaned up after themselves. So glad to have found them on here and will be sure to pass along my experience with them to others. Thank you Alex and the team at AM, our family of 5 can finally have hot showers again!!
