Common Water Heater Problems
Banging, gurgling, knocking sounds coming from your pipes mean they are being put in danger to stresses they were not intended to take and will develop leaks much faster. Banging sounds from inside your water heater are likely large mineral deposits breaking off and settling to the bottom of the tank. This means your water is too hard and you are losing a lot of money to inefficiency.
The sound you REALLY DO NOT want be hearing though, is bubbling or gurgling. If you hear these sounds, shut down your water heater immediately, get out of the room and call us. Why? Because those sounds mean the water inside your heater is boiling. Your water heater has become a pressure cooker, something it is not designed to be. You are in danger of the appliance literally exploding with enough force to seriously injure or kill anyone inside as well as to destroy your home and its possessions.
Hot water tank leaking is caused by several problems. Leaks can come from worn gaskets or pipe fittings, or from the tank itself. It could be coming from the TPR valve. The temperature-pressure relief is a crucial safety component. A faulty valve will allow enough pressure to build up to cause your tank to burst!
A rusty tank is the last indicator that it is time to replace your water heater. We partner with many reputable water heater providers such as: Bradford White and AO Smith please call us for best deals and installation all types of repairs, tankless water heaters, electric hot water heaters and gas hot water heaters.
No Hot Water
Do you have no hot water at all?
The answers vary with the type of water heater.
With gas water heaters, check the pilot light. If it’s out, re-light only carefully following the instructions listed on the water heater tank. What if the pilot will light but goes out quickly? There might be a problem with the thermocouple or gas control valve. If pilot will not light, there may be a problem with the gas supply-contact your utility provider.
With electric water heaters, check the circuit breaker. If it has tripped, go ahead and reset it. If the circuit breaker hasn’t tripped, it could be the ECO switch. Lastly, heating element may have failed or the water heater’s thermostat.
Drain Masters Plumbing Technicians are licensed plumbers. Don’t attempt to repair the gas line and fittings or electrical elements yourself!
Rusty, Smelly Water
Rusty water indicates a corroded hot water tank. This is inevitable without proper maintenance and usually is a decaying anode rod. The rod protects the tank walls and can create hydrogen gas which multiples bacteria in the sediment. We will evaluate the corrosion and either replace the rod and flush out the sediment, giving you a few more years on your appliance or replace the unit. SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA GAS COMPANY as well as Edison now offers various rebates on certain units. If a new hot water unit is needed- our staff can guide you through this process to help save you even more money!
