Common Problems for Water Heaters
● Not Enough Hot Water: If your family or business is not getting enough hot water, you can usually solve this by increasing the temperature. However, turning it up too much can cause other problems. If changing the temperature does not help, you should call a certified plumber to take a look.
● No Hot Water: If your water heater is not heating any water, it could be a broken part. Different types of water heaters use different parts to heat the water. This can be an easy repair for a plumber but should not be done by someone who has not had the right training.
● Smelly Water: If your hot water starts to smell, you probably have bacteria growing in the tank. There are home remedies to this problem, but chemicals always have the chance of ruining the tank or pipes. You should call a plumber to take a look. If your cold water also smells, it probably has nothing to do with the water heater, and you should definitely call a plumber.
● Water Tank Making Noises: This could be caused by any number of problems. The most frequent problem is sediment at the bottom of the tank that is being burned by the heating element. If this is the case, you should hear popping or rumbling. This can be solved by draining the water tank. If you hear a high-pitched noise, your heating element may have a large amount of scaling. Having a plumber come to look at the tank is the best way to fix any problem that could be causing the noise.
● Leaky Tank: This is one problem that probably cannot be repaired. If your water heater is leaking, you should call a plumber to install a new one. If the leak is coming from a source other than the tank, the leak may be able to be repaired.
● Colored Water: If your water has a brown or orange tint to it, your tank is most likely rusting. In some water heaters, the tank can experience corrosion which will lead to leaks or ruptures.
● Pilot Light Will Not Light: If the pilot light on your water heater will not light, you may have a bad gas valve or a faulty thermocouple.
