Common Water Heater Issues

Water heaters, like any other appliances, are prone to damage if not maintained regularly. A damaged water heater can be a nuisance, especially during the cold season when your household needs hot water the most. Problems with your heater may sometimes require professional services, but you can rest assured knowing that you can contact Plumbing One should you need a plumber in Columbus, OH.

Below are some of the common water heater issues that may require our plumbing services.

Temperature Issues

One of the most common problems experienced by water heater users is when the water temperature is either too hot for their liking, or not hot at all. High temperatures can sometimes be fixed just by re-adjusting the thermostat, while cold water may be caused by a faulty heating element. Water that does not get heated enough could indicate that you have an undersized water heater, interchanged hot and cold connections or faulty heating elements or thermostat. 

For issues concerning a faulty thermostat or heating element, contact our plumbing company for assistance.

Discolored Water

If you have rusty water running from your taps, it could indicate corrosion of the inner lining of your tank. Most times, rusty water is caused by a failing anode rod. Contact our professionals for plumbing repairs or, if necessary, replacement of your water heater.

Unusual Noises From Your Heater

The buildup of sediments in your heater could be the cause of the noises. Flushing the water heater can fix this problem. However, if the problem persists, you can contact us for further diagnosis.

Water Leaks

Water leaks can be a result of various issues ranging from a broken heater tank, faulty relief valve, poor plumbing connections, or a damaged gasket, among others. Checking for loose connections in your plumbing can help reduce the leaks. If the leaking continues and you suspect that it’s due to your water heater being cracked or broken , you can contact us for emergency plumbing.
