What are Common Water Heater Problems?

Common problems include the pilot light going out, pressure valves not working, and leaking water heater tanks.

A water heater pilot light can go out due to a malfunctioning system. They must be lit again. It is dangerous for a homeowner to relight the pilot light. This is a task that should be left to the professionals. If the water heater is an older model, we will use a lighter or even a match to carefully relight the pilot light and stop it from going out again. If you have an electric water heater the igniter could be faulty and will need to be replaced.

In some cases, the pressure valves are not correctly working on the water heater and can release pressure before the heater is ready. In turn, this causes the pressure valves to release hot water outside the tank and can cause a big mess. Repairing a pressure valve is actually replacing it with a new one, since the original one is beyond repair. Surprisingly, new pressure valves are easy to replace within an hour or less. But while it is easy to replace a pressure valve, it’s important to clean up after the mess of the released water that the gas tank caused.

The most common water heater problem is a leaking unit. Leaking water heaters can be caused by several different sources, such as improperly installed fittings or a defective water tank. We are able to professionally replace the fittings or correct them in order for the water tank to stop leaking. If your tank is corroded, we will present you with options for replacing your entire water heater unit.
