Check Your Status!
No, not your relationship status.
To check the status of your water heater is simple, quick, and can prevent you from being slapped in the face with cold water down the road... literally.
So, what is a status?
The status on your water heater tells you what is possibly malfunctioning or working perfectly fine with your water heater. The status light will flash more than once every 3 seconds if any errors are detected. If the light stays red for a long period of time, it can mean your water heater is shutting down.
If you're thinking to yourself, "Okay, got it. Now, what in the world is a pilot?" don't worry, you aren't alone.
A pilot is simply just a small flame that ignites the gas burner on your water heater. If this light goes out, chances are the hot water goes away. Try relighting it and if that doesn't work, call Aloha Plumbing.
We supply and install high quality and name brand water heaters! To ensure that our customers get the best service, our technicians also supply and install new supply lines that connect from the top of the water heater.
It is important to make sure all of your pipes, drains, and water heaters are working properly. Status and pilot lights make it easy for you to find the issue and come up with your resolution!
