What are Common Water Heater Problems?

The following are some common signs you are having water heater problems.

Discolored water coming out of your tap is a common sign your water heater needs repair. This discolored water may be caused by rust or sediment in the water heater. It may require the tank to be flushed, cleaned, or replaced.

Foul-smelling water may be caused by a buildup of bacteria in the tank. Our technicians will clean the tank, check or replace the anode rod, or replace the tank.

Low hot water pressure is also common in older water heaters. This could mean the water shut off valve isn’t completely open, or the faucet stem, faucet supply line, or the faucet water shut off may be clogged. It can also be caused by a clogged water dip tube or water line leaving the heater. The shut off valve could also be malfunctioning.

Water leaking from the water heater relief valve is another common problem. It may be caused by a weak relief valve spring, or extreme pressure. If large amounts of water are being released from the relief valve, the water heater may be too hot.

Other problems include issues with the pressure relief valve, drain valve, electric heating element, or the gas control valve. The plumbing near the water heater or the water tank itself may be leaking. This may necessitate adjusting the settings, fixing the pipe, or replacing the water tank.

How Can You Prevent Water Heater Problems?

A well maintained water heater can last 8 to 10 years, or more. Well-maintained units also use less water, electricity, and gas. Keeping your water heater properly cleaned and serviced is the best way to protect your investment and keep your hot water flowing properly. This will help reduce the number and frequency of repairs your unit will need. It can also extend the life of your water heater and save you money on water and energy bills.
