Frequent Hot Water Heater Problems in Western San Fernando Valley
- “It won’t make enough hot water”
- “The water looks dirty”
- “There is water leaking from it”
- “It’s making lots of cracking noises”
- “It comes on and off all the time”
A conventional tank hot water heater features a heating element (commonly natural gas or electric) and a large tank to hold the heated water until it is wanted.
A tank which has a leak will usually need to be replaced.
If the leak is in a pipe or connection, that may be fixable, but not a leak from the tank itself.
Other than the tank, the majority of damaged parts can be fixed or replaced.
Some frequent trouble spots are the temperature controls, the heating assembly components, and the anti-corrosion anode rod that is inside the tank to fight corrosion.
Very small particles in the water will drop to the bottom of the tank where they will usually be burned up. This is what causes the common popping sounds in a tank when the burner is on.
However, some deposits won’t burn off and they may build up and form a coating of gunk on the floor of the tank. This layer will cause a tank to heat unevenly and lead to a shorter tank life.
