Water Heaters Vital To Plumbing Dallas TX Homes

Posted on: September 3, 2012

The water heater is an essential part of the plumbing Dallas TX homeowners use daily.  Unless you are one of the rare individuals who prefer a freezing cold shower in the morning, chances are this appliance will get a workout each day.  Most are very dependable and offer a decade or more of service.  Following a simple annual maintenance plan can help to extend the life of the unit even longer.

Many homeowners are unaware that there are only three steps to maintain the home water heater.  In addition to being very simple to perform, the steps only take about five minutes.  Most would agree this is a small investment to pay to extend the lifespan of the water heating appliance.

In order to keep the unit working well, homeowners should take the following three steps:

– Check the Temperature
– Test the Pressure Relief Valve
– Flush the Tank

The thermostat on the unit should be set to below 120 degrees Fahrenheit.  On gas units the temperature dial is a knob located where the gas line enters the system.  On electric units, the dial is behind a panel on the front of the unit.  Larger electrical units may have two panels and two thermostats.  Lowering this setting reduces the energy consumed, protects the system from overheating and can prevent scalds in the home.

Units are designed with a relief valve to relieve pressure that is critical to operating the device with safety.  If the water is overheated and begins to build pressure, this valve releases the excess pressure through a pipe to a drain.  To test, lift the lever and release.  It should snap back in place rapidly.  Lifting the lever will release some water causing a gurgling sound in the drain tube.  If the valve does not release water or does not snap back, it is defective and should be replaced.  The plumbers at Dial One Johnson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning can provide this service for customers ensuring the tank continues to work safely.

As the device heats water, sediment forms and settles to the tank bottom.  These sediments can cause corrosion of the tank and decrease its efficiency.  A quick flush takes only a few minutes and can help to remove sediment and keep the system working well for many years.  Place a three to five gallon bucket under the drain valve.  It is located near the bottom of the tank and looks like a hose bib.  Open the valve by turning counterclockwise and allow a few gallons to drain into the bucket.  Be sure to stand to the side when opening the valve as the water will be hot.  Close the valve and discard the water and sediment removed from the tank.

Proper maintenance of water heaters can ensure they provide many years of service.  However, as all appliances, it will fail one day.  When the system does fail, be sure to call for help from a professional plumber.  Plumbers can perform the replacement quickly with little upset to the home.

Great service




Review of Dial One Johnson Plumbing

This company always makes my service experience pleasant. I get a courtesy call to confirm the appointment and to let me know the arrival time for the appointment. The plumber, James, gives a great explanation for the work needed and is very efficient at doing the job. I can definitely recommend this company.

Excellent Service - Outstanding




Review of Dial One Johnson Plumbing

Starting with my initial call and interaction with the Office Manager Andy, the service was outstanding. The onsite team beginning with Matt, the leak detection person and ending with the plumbers (Jonathan and James), the service was excellent. I highly recommend this company for your plumbing needs.

Great Service and Awesome Price!




Review of Dial One Johnson Plumbing

My serviceman was Don. He was Awesome! I was extremely pleased with the service. Before starting he thoroughly checked the job out to see what was entailed. He helped me pick out the items I would need and took time to answer my questions and concerns.It was evident that he wanted to do a good job and the customer was first which was me. I was educated on the procedures. He told me what he needed to do, how it was going to be, and how long it would take. And he gave me a good price. Don is experienced and highly efficient. He is well-organized and neat. His work is eye-catching and eye-pleasing. There were no water drippings or stains left on my white tile floor. When finished, he left his work area neat and clean. He hauled old items away. He did an AWESOME job! I recommend Dial One Johnson Plumbing which I will be using again and again. And I will be personally asking for Don. When the job, was finished he thanked me for allowing him to serve me.Good customer service means a lot.

Review of Dial One Johnson Plumbing

Exceptional customer service from Debra taking the initial call to James fixing the plumbing issue. My telephone call to Dial One was taken quickly and efficiently addressed; no long wait on line for a person to answer. My information on the problem was promptly taken and steps taken to help me. James arrived promptly and was working to fix the plumbing issue within minutes of arriving at our home. James definitely knew what he was doing, very knowledgeable and very personable. If Debra and James are the typical caliber of Dial One employees, Dial One is a solid service provide and be my “go to” company. My thanks to Debra and James, they made resolution to this problem a quick, easy fix for us.

Best Plummer Ever!




Review of Dial One Johnson Plumbing

I called there office in a panic! There was water in the closet by my hall bath. I had already had three Plummer’s out and the all said the leak was fixed. The whole shower had been taken out and the cold water rerouted because of THE LEAK. Well there went a thousand dollars. But we still had the leak! We had to pay to have the tub and tile replaced another seventeen hundred dollars we still Have THE LEAK! They have to tear out some of the brand new tile and replace the faucet . And had to pay to have that repaired two hundred fifty dollars! Go into the bedroom in the closet this morning and THE LEAK is back!! All over the carpet now we are back to square one. I call your office and the lady that answered the phone was very kind and I was about to loose it. I felt like I had been betrayed by three different Plummer’s and did not know who to trust. She assured me that your technicians were the best and would find the problem. Then the man of the day showed up to my door same day mind you. And he did not know he was going to be the man of the day at least in my world. Curley walked me through each and every step of what he was doing and showed me how he eliminated each possibility to get to the root of THE LEAK! Finally a resolution was in sight! He found it with his trusty camera and plus all the water everywhere behind the wall. He showed it to me and I was so happy to see it could be fixed. I was thinking we must have a leak in the slap which would mean the tub and tile work would all have to be redone and I was so relieved Curley and his apprentice where very professional, kind, and just the best! They cleaned up everything like nothing had happened😁 My husband arrived right as they were getting ready to leave and I him if he could show him what they had done and he did. My husband was was very impressed with him as well and appreciated him taking the time to show him what the problem was. I can not say enough good things about Curley. I will recommend your company every one I know. Thank you for making my day by finding THE LEAK!
