No Hot Water:
If you suddenly find yourself without hot water, the culprit is easy to pick out. However, unless your water heater is visibly leaking water, the reason for the malfunction can be difficult to diagnose. From a blown fuse to a faulty thermostat, to a bad heating element or igniter failure, there are a variety of causes. If incorrectly diagnosed, you may end up performing unnecessary repairs or making the problem worse. Don’t risk costly repairs and personal harm; if you lose hot water contact the experienced certified plumbers at S&K Pump and Plumbing right away.

Obstructions in the water lines, rusty pipes, even poor supply-line design can all be contributing factors to low water pressure. Call our team of experienced plumbers to accurately identify the cause of your low water pressure to get the problem resolved quickly and accurately.
