RUSSELL M.

Black Mountain has been my go to company if I need a plumber. Recently I had to get my hot water replaced. Solomon from Black Mountain took the time to explain the work, did a high quality job installing the new hot water heater and associated hardware, explained what was needed to properly maintain the hot water heater each year and did a thorough job cleaning up the job site after completing the installation.

Will H.

Our new water heater is working great. We got a professional installation that was done in one visit and within the time frame they set up. We knew we would need some code upgrades since the old heater was, well, old. Black Mountain did not gouge us for the upgrades, just did what needed to be done. Their base price plus code upgrade still ended up as a very reasonable price. We are totally satisfied with Black Mountain and would call them again with total confidence.

How to Light a Pilot Light

f you woke up to a cold shower, there’s a good chance the pilot light on your water heater has gone out. Learn how to turn it back on and you’ll be known around your house as the keeper of the flame.

You will need a gas-powered water heater, and a lighter or matches.
Optional: a flashlight.

Gas vapors can be dangerous.  Check around the gas heater and lines before igniting the pilot.  If you smell gas, or suspect a leak, turn off the supply and call the utility company or a professional like Black Mountain Plumbing for help..

Step one:  Turn the temperature knob on the outside of the unit to the lowest setting.  Use a flashlight to see the small parts and lettering on the water heater.

Step two:  Find the metal access panel under the knobs near the bottom of the heater and remove it.  Also, remove the inner-heat shield panel.  Look inside for a flame—if you see one, the pilot is already lit and is probably not the source of the problem.

Step three:  Turn the gas control knob to the off position and wait a minute for any leftover gas to clear the line.  Blow gently through the access door to disperse any remaining gas vapors.

Step four:  Now turn the control to the pilot setting and hold a lit match or lighter in the opening near the end of metal pilot supply tube.  Some models require you to press and hold a button that says pilot, instead of a knob.

Step five:  Press and hold the reset or pilot button on the control box until the pilot lights and continue to hold it for 60 seconds after the pilot is lit.

Step six:  After 60 seconds, turn the control knob to the on position.

Step seven:  Repeat the process once if the pilot did not light the first time

Step eight:  Replace the access panels to the heater and set the temperature knob to the desired setting.  Wait a while for the tank to heat up and you’re back in business

Myths About
Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters have a number of benefits, including space efficiency, low utility costs, and instant hot water. However, they are not right for everyone. Their initial cost is considerably higher, and they often cannot supply enough hot water for simultaneous users, such as someone showering while someone else does laundry. Before purchasing one, examine your budget and your use patterns.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do water heaters typically last?

The older the water heater, the more likely it is to break down. As a general rule, a tank style water heater will last, on average, 8 to 12 years.

Why can't I get my pilot light to light?

If the pilot doesn't relight, if it goes out right after lighting or if the pilot light keeps going out by far the most common cause is a bad thermocouple.

How often should i have my water heater inspected and flushed?

water heater needs regular annual maintenance for top performance. A water heater flush clears out sediment and minerals, such as calcium and lime which may impede your heater’s performance.
