You have probably heard of hard water and freshwater. The difference between the two comes from the limestone levels they contain: hard water is the one that has a greater amount of limestone while freshwater has less.
It is called hard water when it contains a high level of minerals, specifically magnesium and calcium salts. These waters are usually subterranean soils of limestone, which increases the levels of limestone and magnesium, among others. Hard water also leaves more residues, for example, limestone on the drains and pipes, causing problems in the house. For this reason, in geographical areas with hard water, it is recommended to use products that avoid the formation of limestone.
A desire to relax in a warm bath to relax from a hard day’s work but there is a problem: there is no more hot water. A shower with cold water wakes you up but it’s not very pleasant.
Different type of breakdown
Two types of failures can be the source of the disappearance of hot water. Hydraulic failure and electrical failure:
– You notice that the hot water is no longer flowing or that the flow is too low, so it is a hydraulic failure. The intervention of a professional plumber will be necessary in this case.
– The water continues to flow at a normal flow; however it comes out cold, so it is an electrical failure.
In both cases, several problems can be the cause. We give you the means to identify them. Even if the cold water has good virtues, a shower with it can make you lose your good mood.
The power failure
You have identified that the problem comes from an electrical failure. You must check your power supply.
Start by checking if your water heater is well powered. If you have a timer, which allows you to decide when the water should be heated, see if it works properly.
Finally, test the circuit breaker and the fuses that are dedicated to your water heater. A short-circuit may very well have caused the hot-water failure. If after all these checks the problem persists, contact a specialist.
A water heater failure
In case of hydraulic failure, the problem may come from the water heater. The water inside the tank may have difficulty heating. It can come:
From resistance, it will increase the heat of the water to the temperature you have designated before sending it to the faucets.
Limestone formation will reduce the volume of water present in the tank and, therefore, your amount of hot water. Limestone is formed more rapidly in high-temperature water. Do not hesitate to lower the degree of resistance.
Drain cleaners on the shelf – they might work like a charm and the problem will be solved. Other times, however, it barely works against the clog to get it out of the pipes and a plumber is required. It solves the problem but sometimes warns that using a liquid cleaner can damage your pipes.
Liquid drain cleaners are chemical or enzymatic based. They burn or eat obstructions in the drains. Enzymatic cleaners essentially digest the blockage and rarely cause damage to the pipes. Chemical cleaners work because of their reactive nature. The interaction of the chemical with the material causing clogging creates a gaseous heat to burn it.
When gases burn through the plug, they can also burn through the pipes or fittings of your plumbing system. Houses have pipes made of several different substances. Galvanized steel, copper, and PVC plastic are the most common.
Poor water pressure is often caused by clogged pipes and may also be due to reduced pressure in the water line due to leaks, equipment failures, or blocked service hoses, but most faucets are equipped with a water limiter. For new faucets, the pressure may be lower than the old faucets could provide. When it comes to an old installation, the truth is that we get used to the pressure of the shower faucet and maybe we do not realize that we have only a thin trickle of water and we think it is enough. Contact our professional plumbers if you cannot fix the issue on your own.
