Safety Tips from Our San Francisco Water Heater Specialists

If steam or boiling water ever comes out of the valve or the hot water faucets, shut your water heater off at once. If you ever hear a rumbling sound, assume the water heater is overheating and turn it off.

If temperature is a problem on a gas water heater, check that the temperature control is on and is set correctly (normally 160 degrees- a little lower if there’s no dishwasher). If you suspect a faulty control, test it by opening a hot water faucet for 3 minutes. If the heater doesn’t turn on, reset the control to a lower temperature and test again. If it still fails, call Sugar Bear Plumbing Co. to have it replaced. We are one of the best sources for San Francisco water heaters, and we’ll be happy to help you select a new unit that fits your price range.

If your hot water pipe is rusty or discolored…

Check for:

  • Accumulation of rust or sediment in the tank.
  • Scale has formed on the elements.
  • Corroded water pipe.


  • Drain the tank
  • Remove the elements, soak them in vinegar and then scrape off the scale
  • Have a San Francisco plumber from Sugar Bear Plumbing Co. replace the pipes

Water is leaking from the heater…

Check for:

  • Leak in the drain cock
  • Leaking safety valve
  • Hole in the tank
  • Leak in the plumbing connection


  • Close it tightly or replace it
  • Check the water temperature. If it’s too hot, the thermostat may be broken. If the safety valve is defective, replace it.
  • Buy a new water heater
  • Call Sugar Bear Plumbing Co.
