Signs That You Need Commercial Water Heater Service
Because busy business owners and managers have a lot of duties to balance, they may not realize that their water heater has an issue until it’s way too late.
There are warning signs that you should pay attention to. When it comes to water heaters, problems only worsen if left alone. That’s why when you notice any of the following occurring in your commercial premises, it’s advisable to seek plumbing assistance straight away.
This will reduce the risk of more serious damage and disruption.
1. Rusty Water
Rusty water flowing from your heater is an early sign of a problem inside your heater. In most cases, it indicates that corrosion is taking place inside. If not addressed, this corrosion could lead to leakages.
The cause of rusty water can be difficult to establish when you have galvanized pipes because you cannot tell with absolute confidence that the rusting is occurring in the heater.
A fast test on this is to let 3 gallons of water run out for a few minutes then check for rust. Should rusty water persist, then you need to contact specialists.
If the problem is due to corrosion within the water tank, we will either replace the anode rod or recommend replacing the entire unit.
2. Unusual Sounds Coming from Heater
When you hear a rumbling noise from your heater, you should not take it lightly. It could be a sign that your heater needs to be replaced because it’s getting worn out or has a serious problem. The rumbling noise occurs as the lifetime of the heater comes to an end, and it’s due to hardened layers of sediment that have developed at the bottom.
If not addressed you may end up incurring more costs on electricity because the heater becomes less efficient over time. The worst-case scenario would be more damages on the brittle metallic tank that may lead to leaks.
Having a specialist check it out is paramount. We will determine how serious the issue is and, depending on the age of your commercial water heater, we will either recommend a repair or a replacement.
3. Insufficient Hot Water
Again, this could be down to sediment in your tank. If you have noticed a decrease in the amount of hot water that your commercial water heater is producing, this is a clear sign that a repair is necessary.
It may be that your commercial water heater is simply reaching the end of its functional lifespan. If this is the case, our experts will be able to advise you whether it’s more cost efficient to repair or replace the unit.
4. Inconsistent Water Temperature
When you try to access hot water on your commercial premises, do you find that it cuts out? Is the temperature inconsistent, swinging from hot to cold and back again? This suggests there could be a problem with your thermostat, in which case we can repair or replace this part.
It is more serious if the issue stems from a fault in one of your heating elements. Then, replacing your commercial water heater may be required. However, if it’s possible to repair it, then Beehive Plumbing will be able to do so!
5. Reduced Water Pressure
If your property is in an area that suffers from hard water, you may find that your system gets clogged up quicker and more often due to the accumulation of sediment. Low water pressure suggests there is a buildup.
Don’t assume that reduced water pressure necessarily means you need a new commercial water heater. If your heater is reasonably young, it may still be possible to repair it.
6. Water Leak
A leaking water heater is a serious issue that requires urgent attention. If left untreated, this could cause serious property damage and it could create dangerous conditions on your premises. Even small leaks should be approached as emergencies as they could easily worsen into a burst tank situation.
Thankfully, Beehive Plumbing has a 24 hour emergency service that you can count on to handle your commercial water heater leaks whenever they occur.
Commercial Water Heaters We Repair
Electric water heaters have many advantages. They’re usually easier to operate than gas water heaters, and they’re more efficient too. However, they’re more expensive to run than gas water heaters. Electric water heaters are better for the environment because they use renewable energy sources.
Tankless water heaters recently made a grand entry in the market due to their improved on-demand technology. Because they don’t have a tank, they require less space than traditional heaters. There is no risk of a bursting tank, and this model has an overall high efficiency because it only heats the water that is actually being used. The lifespan of a tankless water heater running on gas is much longer than one using electricity.
If you’re contemplating the purchase of a new commercial water heater, feel free to contact our experts for advice. We’ll talk you through the pros and cons of each model in depth and help you find the best water heater for your business needs.

You can count on us for commercial water heater repairs exactly when you need them.
Common Commercial Water Heater Emergencies
Sediment in your hot water tank is incredibly common and usually fairly harmless; however, it can become the cause of a serious leak if not handled in a timely manner.
All the water that enters your heating tank will have some level of minerals in it, and over time this becomes sediment at the bottom of your heater. It will start to take longer to heat your water, and this might end up creating excess pressure in your tank.
The big risk of having too much pressure in your tank is that it can cause it to burst. The sediment can also trap heat and create hot spots in your tank until it eventually springs a leak.
The way to avoid these problems is to have your water heater flushed a few times a year to avoid sediment buildup. When was the last time you had your water heater flushed? If it’s been a while, contact Beehive Plumbing to handle this for you.
Corroded Anode Rod
When water and metal are in close contact, corrosion naturally occurs. Although your tank will have a lining inside, corrosion can still penetrate this layer and have an impact on the tank.
Eventually, this corrosion will cause your tank to deteriorate and leak. This is why water heaters have a specific lifespan. If your heater is old and it is starting to corrode, it may be that you need to replace it rather than simply repair it.
Anode rods are used in water heater tanks to protect them. These rods are made of metal to attract corrosive elements; it is basically sacrificed to save the tank. Your anode rod may need to be replaced if you’re noticing issues like rusty water.
A leak is bad enough, but if your water heater tank contains too much pressure, there’s an even bigger risk: your heater could burst and cause major damage, as well as endangering the people in your property.
Pressure builds when the temperature gets too hot. Anything over 140 degrees will have an impact on the pressure in the tank. It’s safer to keep the temperature in the 120 to 125 degrees range instead.
If pressure does build, your relief valve should open up to alleviate the pressure. Make sure this valve works! If it’s broken, this needs to be fixed as quickly as possible. You should definitely call Beehive Plumbing if the temperature is climbing without your intervention. This is an emergency situation of the most serious kind.
