Reasons Behind Sediment Buildup
Sediment buildup can wreak havoc on your plumbing and appliances. While regular maintenance can get rid of the buildup, it doesn’t prevent it from happening. At A.M. Plumbing & Rooter, you can be sure that a plumber in Temecula, CA, offers essential services for sediment buildup in your water heater. Here are some of the reasons why this problem occurs.
The number one reason for sediment buildup in your hot water heater is hard water. The term “hard water” refers to water with high mineral content. The most common minerals found in water are calcium and magnesium. When they’re in hot water, they precipitate out and create sediment.
Corroded Water Tank
Corrosion in the water heater’s tank may cause sediment buildup. As the metal of the tank interacts with oxygen in the water, rust forms. The rust flakes off, creating sediment. Rest assured that our water heater services include tank inspections, so we can see how your system looks inside and out.
Old pipes may begin to corrode or rust. If your home’s pipes are more than 50 years old, you may need repiping services. This is also a good time to consider a water heater installation. We install traditional and tankless water heaters to suit your household’s needs.
Solving Sediment Buildup
You can schedule water heater cleaning every six to 12 months to get rid of the buildup. Another option is getting a tankless water heater. They don’t store hot water. Instead, they deliver it on demand. With no storage of the hot water, there’s no chance for sediment to accumulate.

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!!
