GS Plumbing Introduces New Way to Get Optimal Hot Water Flow

GS Plumbing Introduces New Way to Get Optimal Hot Water Flow

Greenville, SC (PRWEB) November 22, 2012 -- GS Plumbing, a leading plumbing contractor in Greenville, South Carolina, recommends installing hot water recirculation pumps, to help reduce water waste and save time, energy, and money. Hot water recirculation pumps provide hot water about 60 to 80 percent faster than standard water heater configurations.

"With normal water heaters, hot water is sent from the heater to your faucet. As hot water sits in the pipe waiting to be used, it cools off," explains Pam Sonnefeld of GS Plumbing. "When you turn the faucet on again, the cooled-off water has to be displaced with fresh, hot water. This can end up wasting a large amount of the cooled water, especially if the faucet is far from the water heater."

US Households Waste up to $300 Annually Using Inefficient Water Heater Technology

US Households Waste up to $300 Using Inefficient Water Heater Technology

Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) October 22, 2012 -- With fall and winter fast approaching homeowners should be prepared for a possible water heater failure. The average residential water heater has a lifespan of 10 years and water heaters fail most often when the weather turns cold. Cold water inlet temperatures put additional stress on older steel units causing them to fail either through failing electric resistance elements or a leaking tank caused by a build up of rust and corrosion over time.

Many households do not consider energy saving options when faced with replacing a failing electric water heater. According to the ENERGY STAR® program, upgrading to an energy efficient heat pump water heater can save households up to $300 per year on their utility bill.

Draining and Flushing A Water Heater w/Master Plumber Trade Secrets

Draining and Flushing A Water Heater

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (PRWEB) October 02, 2012 -- “Whenever it is necessary to change an element in an electric heater, leave the heater unused over a freezing winter, or when the heater needs cleaning, it must be drained,” according to Bob Beall, master plumber and president of Mr Rooter Plumbing Pittsburgh.

An electric water heater will need to be drained prior to replacing the unit, as well.

According to Mr Rooter, “to drain a heater open both its drain valve and the T&P valve (or a hot water faucet in the house) to break the vacuum the water will pull as it drains.” Beall adds, without breaking the vacuum, some water will always stay in the heater.

TRADE SECRET: Hard water can build scale that reaches the bottom element in a just a few months. If the heater is not drained, the element will be covered by the scale and burn up.
