Troubleshooting Water Heater Problems

Troubleshooting Water Heater Problems
10/31/2014
The water heater in your home is what gives you hot water for your showers, dishwasher, washing machine, and more. When there is an issue with your water heater, it can cause some serious problems.

This is mainly because not many people want to shower in cold water, or wash dishes in cold water. Thankfully there are things you can do to get rid of these issues without calling a plumber. However, if you are uncomfortable doing it yourself, contact the plumbers in Phoenix who work for ACE Home Services.

            There are a few things that could be wrong with your water heater. Some signs that indicate this are if you:

-          Have no hot water

-          Hear a low rumbling or popping noise

-          Have rust colored water

-          Smell a rotten egg odor

-          Hear a high pitched whining

-          Or do not have enough hot water

If you notice any of these signs, it may be time to take a look at your water heater. Before you do anything, make sure you turn off the gas, or electricity, to your water heater. If you forget to do this, there could be big problems.

If you notice that you do not have hot water, you may want to check the gas pilot flame. If this is not working correctly, you will not get hot water. The rust colored water is a sign that there is rust inside your tank. This could be because there is corrosion in the tank, or if the sacrificial anode rod (which prevents rust) is failing. If it is corrosion, you are more than likely going to have to replace your water heater. I would definitely recommend contacting the ACE plumbers in Phoenix, to help you out.  

If you notice a rotten egg smell emitting from your water heater, the cause is probably from bacteria forming inside your water tank. The first thing you are going to want to do is flush your tank. Then run a peroxide/water solution through your tank. Since it is not toxic it can sit in your tank for a while without causing damage. This should get rid of the bacteria and smell. If this does not work, you may want to replace your water heater tank.

A rumbling, popping, or high pitched whining sound indicates that there is a buildup of sediment at the bottom of your water tank. This cause both an increase in pressure, which is the whining sound and it causes the water to boil within the tank. That is the rumbling sound you can hear. To get rid of this sediment flush your water heater.

Plumbing can be an extremely hard job. However, there are some things you can do to save a little money. The trick is knowing what you are comfortable doing yourself. If there is anything that you are unsure about, contact ACE. Their plumbers are located throughout Phoenix and are willing to help you out with whatever you may need. So give them a call today!
