What are Common Water Heater Problems?

The most common problem you will experience is a lack of hot water. This is caused by a faulty thermocouple or a failing pilot light. Electric water heaters often have faulty thermostats or malfunctioning heating elements.

Rust-colored water is another common water heater problem. All water heaters have something called an anode rod. This rod dissolves in your water to prevent rust from developing. A completely dissolved anode rod will lead to rust in your water and can only be fixed by installing a new rod.

Bacterial infections in your water heater tank can also cause foul odors in your water. The smell is similar to rotten eggs. This problem is also caused by the anode rod. As the rod dissolves, it creates hydrogen gas. Bacteria is often partial to hydrogen, and their ingestion of this gas will lead to smelly water. A complete tank clean is the only solution to this problem.

Sediment buildup in your tank causes water in your tank to boil. This is because the volume of your tank decreases, which increases the concentration of heat in the water. This will cause high-pitched whining and popping noises in your heater, and can lead your unit to break down.

Should I Repair or Replace My Water Heater?

Water heater repairs are simple, as they have very few parts that need to be replaced. Repairing pilot lights, circuit breakers, burners, heating elements, thermostats, or valves are routine, cost-effective services.

However, if your water heater is over ten years old, it may be time to replace it with a new one. This is especially true if your unit starts to leak, or if it is showing signs of corrosion in the tank.
