What’s Wrong with my Water Heater?

below is the most common problems to determine if a water heater repair or replacement is an option for you. 

Not Enough Hot Waterno cold water

If you’re running out of hot water quickly, there are a few things to check. First, take a look at your water heater’s thermostat. It could be as simple as adjusting the heat higher so the water gets hotter. If you’ve had issues with hot water supply for as long as you’ve had the heater, your water heater’s tank might not be big enough to supply the hot water you need for the house or building.

It could also be possible that your tank is leaking or that the dip tube, which transfers cold water to the tank, is broken or cracked. The heating element, burner (in a gas unit), or wiring (in an electric unit) could also be broken. Professionals can fix all of these problems.

Water is Very Hothot water

If your water is way too hot, the problem is probably with your heater’s thermostat. Check to see if it’s turned too high. If it is properly adjusted, it could be malfunctioning. Mark its current position and then turn it to a cooler setting. Wait a few hours. If the water is still not cooler than it was before you turned the temperature down, it’s because the thermostat is broken. 

If the water coming out of your faucets is too hot or it steams, it’s probably because the water heater isn’t shutting off at the temperature it’s supposed to. This is probably because the temperature pressure (TP) relief valve is malfunctioning. The water heater valve replacemant is an easy fix!

Water Takes Too Long to Reheatwater reheating

If your water takes too long to heat up after the tank is emptied, it’s because your heating element is not working properly. This could be because the heating element should be replaced or because the power supply is struggleing to reach the heating element.

Slow-heating water could also be the sign of a  much more serious issue. However If sediment or rust has built up in your water tank, it could be insulating the element. This insulation will force the element to work way harder to heat up the water, causing a pressure and heat build up that could lead to rupture in the tank.

  Water is Rust Colored and Smellysmelly water

If your water is rust colored, smells and tastes weird, the first step is to find out if the problem is with your heater or your waters source. If all your water (cold and hot) or only your cold water is discolored, the problem is your source water. If only the hot water is discolored or smelly, it’s because there’s a high concentration of sulfates or other minerals in your water heater’s tank. These minerals are heated and “cooked” when the water is heated and released into your homes water. See if flushing the tank helps.  

If the problem persists after a few flushes, have a professional replace the anode rod in your water heater. This device acts like a kind of rust “lightning rod.” It keeps your tank from rusting out from the inside by corroding in its place.

Valve or Tank is Leakingwater leak

If the water tank of your heater itself is leaking, it has been badly corroded from the inside. At that point, the only good way to solve the problem is to buy a new tank. This should be done as soon as you can.

If the valve below the tank is leaking, however, you may still have a few options. Usually, the thing you’ll notice leaking will be the temperature/pressure relief valve. This opens to relieve high pressures and temperatures inside the tank and lets out water in the process. If it’s leaking, then it can’t do its job properly or is opening to soon. If you notice a problem with your TP valve, call a professional for a diagnosis. The TP valve is often a warning for greater problems, so if you call fast, we may be able to save you from a more expensive repair.
