Signs Your Water Heater Needs Repaired

No one wants to wake up to a cold shower or a flooded basement due to a water heater malfunction. To avoid these catastrophes, keep an eye out for the following signs of failure:

  • There is rust in your water.
  • The water heater makes loud cracking or popping noises.
  • Water is leaking from or around the tank.
  • Your water heater fails to heat water, or the water only gets lukewarm and not hot.
  • Your water heater continually stops working despite regular repairs or maintenance.

When you need water heater repair services in Huntsville, trust our plumbers at Blake Brothers to ensure the best possible results.

Common Reasons Why Water Heaters Fail

Given how often you use it, it’s not surprising that your water heater has developed some issues. But just in case you’re trying to figure out why your unit isn’t working, here are some possible reasons:

  • Improper Installation: Ensure that your water heater was installed correctly, as errors in the installation process or incorrect sizing can lead to malfunctions.
  • Internal Rusting: The sacrificial anode rod in your water heater corrodes over time to protect the tank from rusting. Replace the anode when it is less than 50% intact to prevent corrosion and potential bursting of the tank.
  • Sediment Buildup: Hard water can cause mineral deposits to accumulate at the bottom of your water heater tank, affecting performance and potentially causing damage.
  • High Water Pressure: Excessive water pressure can damage your water heater, pipes, and other appliances. If you notice water leaking from the overflow pipe, it may be a sign of high water pressure.
  • Old Age: Water heaters typically last 8-12 years, and beyond that, they are at risk of experiencing issues like rust, faulty heating elements, or pilot light problems. Consider replacing your water heater if it is reaching its lifespan.

Lack of Maintenance: Regular inspections and maintenance are crucial to detect warning signs of water heater problems. Neglecting maintenance can lead to premature failure and the need for an early replacement.
