The hot water in your home comes from a water heater. The typical type of hot water heater installed in a home is a conventional model with a tank. This type of water heater can develop problems that will require repairs to restore the unit to working order. Review a few common problems that can occur to a traditional water heater.
No Hot Water
No hot water coming out of a faucet or shower can mean an electrical issue or gas issue. If you have an electrical hot water heater, then the thermostat may be inoperable or the heating element inside the tank may need to be replaced. A pilot light is needed for gas water heaters. If the pilot light is not out, then a technician will need to check the gas thermocouple.
Other Hot Water Heater Issues:
Rust Colored Water
Water coming out of the tap that has a rusty color can indicate a bad anode rod. If the rod inside the tank becomes weak, then rust will begin to appear in your water. The rust color goes away once the bad rod is replaced.
Water with an odor of rotten eggs can be an indication of a bacterial infection in the tank. Bacteria feed on hydrogen gas being emitted from the anode rod. A professional plumber can easily resolve this issue by first draining the tank.
Popping noises can sometimes be heard coming from a hot water heater with build up of sediment. The sediment in the tank can cause an unbalance with the water and cause it to boil. This problem needs to be corrected by a trained plumber who will flush the tank.
Hot water tanks that leak water may indicate a problem with the pressure and temperature. Water that is pooling at the bottom of the tank can indicate a hole due to rust. If you are not sure where the water is leaking, then contact a local plumber to examine the tank and troubleshoot the problem.
