No, they are not. The consortium of manufactures agreed on flame arrestor plate technology to create the new generation of FVIR water heaters. Early in the development, Rheem researchers at their Montgomery labs discovered that flame arrestor plate designs might be vulnerable to the effects of lint, dust and oil – LDO. Rheem urged the ANSI standards be reviewed. As a result, the ANSI standard now includes testing for reliability in LDO environments. Throughout development, Rheem engineers have been highly attentive to the role LDO robustness will play on product reliability and consumer satisfaction.
It means Flammable Vapor Ignition Resistant. An ANSI (American National Standards Institute) standard went into effect in July 2003 that will prevent a water heater from igniting flammable vapors outside the combustion chamber. This helps to protect homes.

When your bathtub and shower drain begin to drain slowly that usually entails there is a blockage in the drain. Another sign of having a clogged drain is if you take a shower and water begins to rise to your ankles creating flood like conditions in your bathroom.

Our Rodger Plumbing experts will locate the problem; once it is located we will talk with you regarding different options to repair the issue as well of the cost. Rodgers Plumbing does spot repair consisting of opening up the spot of the leak and repairing the pipe. We also do pipe coating and that is applied though the inside of the plumbing. We perform this work when there is a series of small leaks if it inconvenient to dig up the slab. Also if we have to replace the entire line that was leaking we will. The repair process usually takes our experts two days to fix pending how bad the leak is.
High water bills can occur for several reasons. In this case it sounds like you have Slab Leak occurring under your foundation. The average household in the U.S. uses a little over 10,000 gallons of water a month with 10% of that wasted because of slab leaks. Rodgers Plumbing suggests checking your water meter for leaks. This is done by turning off all of your water and checking the flow indicator; if it is not moving that is an indicator you have a leak in your yard or house. If your water bill continues increasing call Rodgers Plumbing and we will send out an expert to address the issue.
You cannot break into a slab without confirmation of the location of the leak. Most importantly do not let anyone dismantle your property to search for a leak. Hire a Rodgers Plumbing professional to come out and diagnose the issue. We have the right equipment such as thermal imaging camera, location and listening devices to pinpoint the location of the leak. With the proper equipment slab leaks can be located and repaired with very minimal damage to your property.
Slab Leaks occur when there is a reaction in the pipes below the foundation of a home or property. Many houses are built on a concrete slab foundation with a single layer of concrete several inches thick. Often water pipes and sewer lines are installed under the foundations prior to the pouring of a concrete slab. Over time there are reactions in the pipes caused mainly from corrosion, wear and tear, as well as poor water quality. Mainly a slab Leak will take place when the pipe makes contact with concrete.
There are many symptoms to look out for regarding the occurrence of a slab leak. Some symptoms of a slab leak to keep an eye on are cracks in the walls and flooring. Another symptom of a slab leak occurring is when you have low water pressure or a short supply of hot water. One symptom that really stands out is the constant hearing of running water when all water has been turned off. Slab leak symptoms also occur when you come across a hot spot and moisture which could lead to the buildup of mildew. Rodgers Plumbing also suggest taking a look at your water bills, if your bill has increased over time that usually indicates a slab leak behind your walls.
A Slab Leak is a water leak under the concrete foundation of a home or property. They are also known as foundation and concrete slab leaks. When these leaks occur above the floor they are known as pinhole leaks.
Rodgers Leak Detection Services include under the concrete Slab, behind or inside of walls, line tracing, irrigation systems, landscaping leaks, water main leaks, under foundation leaks, etc.
A running toilet is a big concern. Not only is it a nuisance to listen to but it is a waste of water and money. Toilets that leak can add almost $100 a year to your water bills.
This is caused when cold water fills the tank while there is humid air in the bathroom. The condensation on the exterior of your toilet can last for days. If this is the case your toilet can lead to water damage including mold, corrosion of metal parts, and the rotting of flooring, the sub-floor and floor framing.
Low water pressure can be caused by malfunctioning shut off valve, and a crimped waterline. If your neighbor has strong water pressure the problem may exist in your water meter.
The stems in your faucet may be deteriorating. This occurs when washers, rings or cartridges become worn out or broken. A Rodgers Plumbing expert will be able to fix or replace the leaky faucet.
Water appears to be discolored because of a rusty iron pipe. This occurs when rust dissolves into the water turning it a shade of brown, orange, and sometimes yellow. The cause of the issue can either be a problem with a pipe in your home or the city’s water main system. At Rodgers Plumbing we notice this problem can also occur when the local fire departments flush the hydrants which sometimes can cause temporary discoloration in your water.

Water Heaters sometimes break down at the most inconvenient times. If you are in need of a new hot water heater odds are you are wondering how long it will take to install. Schedule an appointment today and the professionals at Rodger’s Plumbing will have your water heater installed as quickly as possible. A water heater installation is broken down into a three step process usually taking about 2-3 hours. At first our plumbers will have to drain the old tank and remove the old water heater system. Next our plumbers will tactically place the new water heater into the desired location. The last step of installation is connecting the system and testing the unit and making adjustments.
All though a leaking water heater does not always indicate there is a leak. Our plumbers have noticed pooling around a water heater can also be a form of condensation. Also, leaky water heaters can be from loose vales or a corroded water tank. If your water heater is spraying and beginning to flood call a Rodgerâ€™s Plumber immediately. When your water heater is dripping or leaking simply tighten the drain valve.
The proper maintenance is very important while prolonging the life expectancy on your water heater. Every so often it is good to drain the water heater; this will clean the bottom of the tank. Checking your water heater on a daily basis for any corrosion or rust will give you a good idea regarding your water heaterâ€™s condition.
Once a water heat has exceeded the age of 10 years its operating efficiency diminishes by 50%. Electric water heaters will normally last 8-10 years, while gas water heaters may only be good for 6-8 years. If your water heater has lasted longer it is good to check for any symptoms that may implicate that your water heater is on its way out.
Tank-type water heaters provide the amount of hot water the tank can hold. Tankless water heaters mean that there is no storage area to keep hot water.
The difference in gas and electric water heaters is Gas water heaters use the burning of natural gas to heat and electric water heaters heat water by using electric elements. Gas water heaters tend to be less energy efficient and electric are cost effective. Gas water heaters have a much faster recovery rate. For example, larger bathtubs that need to be filled, are filled quicker and heat faster with gas than electric.
When there is water found around the water heater it does not mean it is due to a leak. Other appliances located near the water heater can form condensation. Any form of water that is appearing near the water heater wipe dry and try to determine where it is coming from. If you determine that it is leaking you should turn off the water, power or gas supply to your water heater.
From our past experience shower and bathtubs drain slowly because there is an accumulation of soap and hair built-up in your drain. Take a look inside of your drain and see if there is any hair in it, often you can reach in and pull out the blockage either with your fingers or tweezers. If you cannot locate the clog and pull it out try plunging the drain. Prior to plunging make sure there is enough water in the bathtub to cover the bottom of the plunger and put it over the drain. Push down 5-10 times and the pressure to the drain should open up the pipe. Once the plunger is lifted water should drain quickly, if it does not work repeat the same process. Our next suggestion would be to use a snake drain. In a bathtub and shower drain you need to feed the snake down through the over flow plate opening. Began feeding the snake 3 feet into the opening this should break up the clog and eventually make its way through. If you are attempting to unclog the blockage and are having a hard time contact us at Rodgers Plumbing and we will send an expert to diagnose the problem.
From our past experiences that Rodgers Plumbing has dealt with it sounds like you have a serious blockage in your main sewer and septic line. If this is the case unfortunately you are beyond the point where a drain snake and cleaning product can resolve your issue. We suggest calling one of our Rodgers Plumbers for an effective drain cleaning service.
The water is coming in from the outside and it is coming in from the city sewer line or the septic system. City sewer lines can become clogged with debris and greases which causes the water to come in to your home through basement drain pipes, sinks, toilets and shower drains. Sewers can back up during heavy rain storms when the water runoff fills the pipes to capacity causing them to overflow. Water in your basement can lead to damaged walls, floors, carpeting and furniture causing mold to form. In order to keep your drain lines clear you can install back flow preventers that help prevent storm water flowing into your house. It is best to call one of our Rodger Plumbers experts to examine the cause of the backup.
A garbage disposal is a machine used to shred foods and waste into small pieces. Absolutely do not place glass, plastic or metal non food supplies down the disposal. Rodger Plumbing suggests running cold water to dispose the waste down the drain regularly to keep it clean. Hot water should not be used because it can dissolve fats and greases. Stay away from placing chicken bones, eggshells, stringy vegetables, pasta, fruit pits, shrimp shells, banana and potato peels down your garbage disposal.
A plumbing snake is used to remove debris that is hard to reach. The plumbing snake is reserved for difficult clogs that cannot be taken care by the use of a plunger. Drain snakes come in different shapes in sizes according to the clog you are experiencing. A toilet auger is a snake made especially for a blockage in a toilet. Top snakes are mostly used for bathtubs, shower drain blockages and occasionally the kitchen sink. Depending on how bad the drain is clogged, sometimes snake drains can be tough to work with. A snake drain is successful when it is inserted in the hole and maneuvered through the clog until water can pass through.
There are numerous reasons a drain can clog. When your kitchen sink is clogged usually that stems from the buildup from greases, soaps and food particles. A bathroom sink drain can clog from hair, toothpaste and soaps, as well as the bathtub and shower drains. Also your toilet drains can get overwhelmed with the amount of toilet paper being used. Rodgers Plumbing suggests not flushing, napkins, paper towels, floss, hair, medicine, diapers, and feminine products down your toilet.
Being suspicious and aware of the possibility of a clogged drain early on will cause you less stress and money. Our Rodgers Plumbing experts suggest looking to see if your toilet water bubbles when the sink is running. Also beware if the water in your sink begins to backup and if water begins to drain slowly from your bathtub and sink. If you try to flush your toilet and the water level in the bowl is not the same as before that usually is another sign of a clogged drain. Another reason to be suspicious of a clogged drain is the releasing of a nasty odor equivalent to the smell of rotting food.
