Common Water Heater Problems

The water heater is an important and costly part of the plumbing system in your home. If you begin to notice troubles, getting the heater fixed could prevent having to replace it. Many common water heater problems can be found and repaired with the assistance of a plumber.


Does your hot water heater bang, creak or whine? Many times noise issues are caused by sediment buildup. As the heating element comes into contact with the sediment, sounds are created as it burns away. Other times the creaks and groans could be caused by a failing heating element. A plumber can help find the source of the rucks and help you put an end to it.


The first time you notice a problem with your water heater may be because the water is too hot or not hot enough. Water that’s too hot could indicate a thermostat that needs adjusting or repairs.  Cold water could mean that it’s time to replace the heating element. These parts are relatively easy repairs, although a plumber can assure you that everything is installed correctly.

Depending on the age of your heating unit and if you have more drastic problems like water leaking, it could be time to replace your hot water heater. Don’t wait until your water heater stops working to get help. Visit this website to learn more about water heater repair in Castroville.
