Signs That Your Water Heater Needs Repairs

A water heater can display many symptoms when it has a problem, and not all of them will result in cold water. Here are some of the most common indications of water heater problems:

  • Cool or barely warm water – If your water is not hot enough, your water heater may have combustion problems, or one of the heating elements may have failed in an electric system. If it is not working at all, the ignition system or thermostat may have failed, or its breakers may have tripped.
  • Insufficient hot water – If your water heater runs out of hot water too quickly, one of its heating elements may have failed, there may be combustion problems, there may be a plumbing leak, or the tank may have too much sediment.
  • Low pressure or volume – Reduced flow or pressure could result from minerals and corrosion in the tank or a leak somewhere in the plumbing system.
  • Discolored water – Corrosion in the plumbing system or tank can cause water discoloration and stains in your fixtures.
  • Leaks near the water heater  Leaks can indicate a damaged plumbing line, a faulty pressure relief valve, or a corroded water tank.

If you notice any of these symptoms, contact our team at The Witmer Company for repairs. Our plumbing experts will examine your water heater and recommend the most cost-effective repair options.

Water Heater Repair FAQs

Why is my water heater leaking water?

Water leaks usually occur as drips from the top, leaks from the bottom, or leaky pipes. These leaks can be caused by defective seals, rusted pipes, or internal tank leaks.

If you see water around your hot water tank, you should schedule a service appointment right away to identify the precise cause.

Why is my tank rumbling?

If you hear a rumbling from your hot water tank, it’s likely because it is filled with sediment. As sediment builds up, it will reduce hot water capacity.

Draining the sediment should resolve the problem and restore the water heater’s normal hot water capacity.

How efficient and effective are tankless water heaters?

Tankless water heaters are extremely efficient, with most systems providing a near-constant supply of hot water. Tankless systems are an eco-friendly option that will deliver superior performance.

The key to choosing the right tankless system is selecting a unit with a flow rate suitable for your family’s needs.

Why does it take so much time for the hot water from my tank to reach my faucet/shower?

This issue is likely with your plumbing itself, not your water heater. The further the water has to travel through the home’s plumbing system, the longer it will take to reach the faucet/shower.

A tankless system can alleviate this problem by placing the hot water directly beside the faucet/shower, significantly reducing distance and wait time.

How can I reduce my water consumption?

There are many ways you can reduce your water consumption without negatively affecting your daily routines. To that end, we recommend the following steps:

  • Lower the water heater’s preset temperature.
  • Replace showerheads and fixtures with low-flow alternatives.
  • Flush sediment from the water tank.
  • Promptly repair leaks and other damage to your water heater.
