Most Common Hot Water Heater Problems
Water heaters require service and repair due to several different reasons. Some of the most common issues can be easily and quickly fixed by a professional plumber. One of the most obvious problems is having no hot water at all; but here are some other things to be aware of.
Water Heater Tank is Leaking
If you notice standing water at the base of your water heater, perform a quick visual inspection to see if any noticeable problems exist. Look for cracks in the tank, and see if you can determine the source of the problem. Sometimes a connection may just be loose, in which case you can tighten it with a wrench.
However, it is important to understand that old pipes may leak due to deteriorating threads and there is always a chance that a turn of the wrench may cause a larger leak. Other times the leak may be caused by a faulty part that needs to be replaced.
Low Hot Water Pressure
If you notice your hot water seems to trickle out,it might be due to a broken part or possibly a problem within the water line itself. Sometimes buildup occurs within the line and creates an obstacle for the water to flow around. This is typically an issue that needs to be addressed by a professional.
Extreme Water Temperature
If your hot water is suddenly too hot or too cold, you can check the settings on your water heater thermostat. It may be set too high and lowering it a bit can fix the problem. If this does not resolve itself, it’s probably due to a faulty thermostat.
Water Takes Too Long to Get Hot
Some homes regularly experience longer times for water to heat up due to the distance the water must travel. However, if you are suddenly experiencing this delay, check your other faucets and see if the problem is throughout the home. If you are only having trouble with one faucet, there may be a blockage in the water lines. Again, this requires a professional plumber to get your water running freely.
