Common Water Heater Issues

There are a lot of things that can go wrong with a water heater, in addition to not heating your water. Leaks are common in both electric and gas model water heaters. The leaks at the top of either type of unit are most often due to loose fittings or a valve that has failed. Both of these can easily be repaired by A Better Plumber. Leaks at the bottom of any water heater tank can be a little more tricky. The best case is a faulty drain valve which can be replaced. But if the leak is due to a hole in the tank from damage or corrosion, then replacement is the only sure fix. 

Even if you are experiencing no hot water, there is still hope that the unit can be fixed, faulty thermostats, heating elements, and thermocouples can all be replaced on your current unit for far less than the cost of a new water heater. And in the case of an electric unit, the cause could be as simple as a tripped circuit breaker. Thermostat issues can also result in water that is not hot enough or water that is too hot. 

If you are finding that you don’t have enough hot water, there could be a couple of issues. The first issue could be that the heating element in the tank is beginning to fail, but the other could be more related to your use of hot water. If your family is growing or you are suddenly in need of more hot water, your water heater tank might not be large enough to provide the hot water that you need. In this case, our plumber can recommend a larger water heater to better meet your needs or even a tankless water heater which would provide instant hot water any time you turn on a hot water faucet. 

If you are having an issue not related to the water temperature, there is still a chance that your water heater is to blame. Smelly hot water is often due to bacteria contamination in the tank. Turning the heater up can help to kill the bacteria, but a good tank cleaning is also recommended. Rusty or brown water is an indication of sediment in the tank. Draining and cleaning the tank should eliminate the issue. Water heaters should be drained every year to help prevent both of these issues and to extend the life expectancy of the tank.

Common Water Heater Issues

Finally, if you happen to notice sounds coming from the water heater tank such as popping or knocking, these often indicate sediment in the tank or build up, on the heating element. The sounds should not be a reason to worry about the integrity of the tank, but a call to a licensed Pro to schedule a tank inspection by a traing technician is recommended just to be sure and to remedy the issue.
