What Causes Water Heater Problems?
The simple answer is the water itself. Whether it is sediment from the municipal water mains, the natural corrosion associated with water, or possible failure that may occur when accumulated rust acts as an electrical conductor, a variety of water-related issues can affect your heater.
Symptoms of a faulty water heater include:
- No hot water coming out of the taps
- Not enough hot water at all
- Smelly or colored water
- Unusual noises such as a high-pitched whine or low rumble and popping sounds
- Water pooling beneath the unit
When you are faced with a problem, we will come to your commercial or residential property and determine the cause. We can check for gas supply problems, see if there are bacteria present in the tank sediment, or check if the tank is leaking due to corrosion from sediment. Once we have diagnosed the issue, we will develop and implement an effective solution to resolve it.
Repairing vs. Replacing Your Unit
It is worth having a plumber check your unit before deciding to replace it because repairs can solve most issues if caught in time. However, pooling water is often an indication of a serious corrosion issue. Before replacing, review the information contained on the boilerplate of the current unit, which will reveal installation guidelines, tank capacity, model and serial number, insulation R-value, and other applicable knowledge that helps in deciding on a replacement. If you decide on purchasing a replacement unit, you may want to opt for an upgraded unit that will last longer than an older unit.
Avoiding Future Water Heater Problems
A little maintenance can go a long way in preserving the integrity of your water heater. It is easy to forget that an annual inspection can do wonders for your water heater.
During a routine maintenance appointment, our Richmond plumbers will:
- Flush the unit
- Drain the unit if it will not be used that season
- Check the pipes feeding into the unit
- Check the T&P valve
Catching issues before they are serious is the best way to preserve the life of your water heater. At M.A. Williams Inc., your water heater is in good hands.
