Can Granite Bay Plumbers Help With Finding The Cause Of Dirty Water?

Areas of the country, like the foothills around Folsom Lake, have extremely soft water qualities. Run-off from the Sierra Nevada foothills and wide swings in seasonal temperatures can change the look, smell, and chemical content of available water. This is why municipal water distribution systems monitor, filter, and balance the water that is pumped into homes in places like Granite Bay, Roseville, Meadow Vista, and Rio Linda.

Unless there is a physical problem in a localized section of the line, “dirty” water coming from a distribution point is very rare. There are a host of other reasons for a home to experience dirty tap water, and only Granite Bay plumbing experts can help discover the causes.

Dirty Tap Water Is A Shock

It can happen at some point to any home or apartment complex. One day, you go to turn on your faucet and instead of crystal-clear California mountain water you get some rusty brown, and even sediment-filled water out of the tap when the hot water is turned on.

The first thing to do when noticing dirty tap water is to call a neighbor sharing the same system. Chances are, they are not having the same problem and if they aren’t then the dirty water is coming from the home. It’s time for a Granite Bay plumbing company like PRO Hot Water Service to be called to remedy the situation.

Possible Causes Of Dirty Water

Sudden changes in water supplies, city piping problems, digging accidents, and back pressure problems can cause dirty tap water, but the culprit is usually something far simpler. The most common cause for dirty water in the home is appliance-based.

Dirtiness is usually noticed after hot water lines are opened. This is a strong clue to the cause. When a water heater becomes corroded inside over time, a change in tank pressure and temperature can suddenly knock loose the build-up. Though the thermostat, thermocoupler, and element functions of the heater are working fine, the impurities in the tank can mix with tap water.

Granite Bay plumbers service this type of occurrence all the time. Modern hot water heaters are extremely efficient, and they can last far beyond their factory warranties. After a survey of the hot water heater, a plumber can determine if corrosion is the problem.

If you are experiencing impurities in your water it’s time to inspect the inside of a hot water heater that is dirtying tap water.. At the first sign of dirty water, be sure to call Granite Bay plumbers who can install a new hot water heater, and get your clean water flowing once again.

Mark is great! Answered my call on a Sunday evening and was at my house the next morning. I had a blown gas water heater under my house that wasn't installed properly or safely and was located in a very tight space. Didn't take long to figure out my options! Had to be replaced with an electric water heater. Mark left to get a new one and safely installed it that morning! The work space was difficult to say the least! I highly recommend Mark! Good honest knowledgeable energy!

Very responsive, came on a Saturday, very knowledgeable and efficient in fixing our water heater. Had tried 3 local plumbers, 1 was busy for 2 more days, the other 2 did not work on this type of water heater. Very pleasant. Arrived on time, was very helpful in trying to fix the problem over the phone before agreeing to drive the 45 minutes. Highly recommend him.
