Normally, a 50 gallon hot water heater will be enough for a family of 4. If the hot water heater is electric you would want to think about a 50-60 gallon unit.

  • Q. What exactly is meant by the terms “hard water” and “soft water”?
  • A. “Hard water” is water that contains high levels of calcium and/or magnesium. These minerals in large amounts can leave behind deposits, also referred to as scale, on the fixtures and appliances. Over time, it may also restrict the effectiveness of the appliance or fixture. Hard water also decreases the successful washing action of detergents and soaps for example in the dishwasher and clothes washer. Getting a water softening system placed in your home will essentially remove calcium and magnesium via interaction with salt through the process called ion exchange.

 

  • Q. Why is there a rattle in my water pipes?
  • A. The trouble may be that the water line is not properly isolated from the physical elements of the home. This means in case your pipes aren’t appropriately isolated from the home’s elements, water going within the pipes could end up relocating to studs, joists or beams beneath the floor or in the walls. This could be a hassle-free fix if the pipes are easily accessible. We can insert materials to insulate the pipes and stop the rattling. In case your pipes mainly rattle when the water is switched on or off it can be that you need to install a water hammer arrester which will take away the jolt resulting from fast closing water valves. Figuring out this challenge is not always simple therefore it is vital that you call on a professional that will help determine the main cause.  Qik Plumbing is simply a telephone call away and able to assist you in whatever way we can; call today!  Call us today TOLL FREE (888) 390-7566
