Common Water Heater Issues

Aged water heaters can be quite vulnerable – corrosion is a cruel enemy that will slowly but surely chip away at the tank, resulting in unwelcome leaks. If you encounter such an issue with yours, it’s likely due to worn down valves or gaskets and may require repair or replacement of your unit entirely. Be sure to act quickly if you notice any signs of leakage – otherwise further damage could occur!

  • The Water is Too Cold – Having a cold shower is no fun, and it can indicate an issue with your water heater. A lack of power to the unit or faulty components such as thermostats or heating elements may be at fault. If you’re experiencing this problem, check circuit breakers and fuses for potential hazards that could be causing the chill!
  • The Water is Warm, but Not Hot – Tired of cold showers? It might be time to take a closer look at your water heater. A crossed connection between hot and cold pipes may cause lukewarm and weaker-than-usual streams from the faucet, but that can easily be tested by turning off the supply line first. If you still have slow or insufficiently heated H2O coming out during this checkup, then it’s likely due to an undersized tank or technical issues such as faulty components like heating elements and thermostats – best left for qualified technicians!
  • The Water is Too Hot: Struggling with scalding hot showers? You may need to adjust your water heater’s thermostat – otherwise the temperature could easily become too high for comfort. According to the U.S Department of Energy, an ideal setting is 120° F; this keeps things warm and efficient at once! Have a look through that trusty owners manual for adjusting instructions.
  • Water Heater Leaks: These be attributed to one of many causes but age is likely a factor.  You could have:
    • A faulty temperature and pressure relief valve (also called T&P Valve)
    • Water pressure that is too high or too low
    • Overheating
    • A valve that is stuck
    • A leak from a nearby plumbing connection
    • Loose heating element bolts
    • A bad gasket
    • A leaking water tank

    Check for any visually loose plumbing connections and tighten them to reduce the leak.  Be careful not to over-tighten them.

    Next, check the loose heating element bolts, tightening them if needed. If the heating element is still leaking, you will probably need to replace the gasket (we recommend hiring a professional plumber to do this).

    The last thing to do is check for leaks on or around the storage tank but if you have a leak, be aware your water heater is probably on the fritz and ready to go because leaks begin from corrosion on the inside of the unit.

    Another option to avoid water heater leaks in the future is to switch to a tankless which will give you back a ton of space while saving you money in the long run because tankless water heaters have a longer lifespan than a traditional water heater.

  • Discolored Water:Rusty water can be an indicator of more serious issues with your tank’s inner lining. It is advised that you contact a local plumber to check if replacing the anode rod will protect against further corrosion; otherwise, a complete replacement may be necessary for optimal performance.
  • Wierd Noises: Odd noises coming from your water heater can be caused by sediment buildup. If you’re feeling handy, give flushing the system a try – there’s lots of helpful advice online! But if it doesn’t seem to help or is too hard for DIY-ers, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us – you may need an entirely new water heater installation instead.
