About Water Heater Repair

There are many reasons why your water heater might need to be repaired, including common causes like sediment buildup, the incorrect size heater, old age, and more. When you run into water heater problems and your water heater needs to be repaired, the best thing that you can do is call a licensed plumber. After all, a licensed plumber will have all the knowledge and experience needed to tackle your water heater problems. 

A plumber will also most likely have seen the type of problem your water heater has and know exactly how to sort it out. Usually, water heater repairs should take a few hours, depending on the extent of damage that your water heater has. 

However, quite a few people try to fix their water heaters by themselves, although this tends to lead to more damage, which leads to spending to fixing your water heater. Not to mention hiring a plumber, you will no longer have to worry about repairing the water heater by yourself, which will take a load off your shoulders. 


7 Sings Your Water Heater Needs to Be Repaired 

It is always better to get your water heater sorted out sooner than later. It is important to know what to look out for to tell you if your water heater needs to be repaired. 

1. Leaks From Water Heater 

A common sign that your water heater needs to be repaired is if you have noticed that there is water leaking from your water heater’s tank. You will usually find some water collecting directly under your tank, or the pipes connected to the water heater might be dripping.

2. Lukewarm Water 

If you have noticed that your water is no longer very hot but only gets up to a lukewarm temperature, this can be seen as a sign that your water heater may fail. There are many reasons why you are no longer getting hot water. However, this is usually because your water heater is not getting enough power.


3. Low Hot Water Pressure

Another sign that your water heater needs repairs is if you have noticed that your hot water pressure is much lower than what it normally is. Low hot water pressure is usually caused by mineral deposits in your water heater, which can cause blocked pipes. 

4. Inconsistent Water Temperature 

When using hot water in your home and the water temperature seems to change from hot to cold without you adjusting it continuously, then this is a sign your water heater might be failing. 


The cause of fluctuating temperatures from a water heater is usually a result of mineral deposits starting to collect around the heating components of your water heater.


5. Rust Coloured Water

All water coming from your water tank should be completely clear, and water heaters are starting to fail. The cause of the rust coloured water is the water heater aluminium and magnesium pipes that are becoming old and rusty. 

6. Noisy Water Heater 

It is normal for your water heater to make a few small noises. However, if you have noticed that your water heater is quite noisy, then you should take this as a sign that your heater might be damaged. A noisy water heater is another result of mineral deposits being collected in the water heater tank, which causes the water heater’s structure to weaken.

I would highly recommend At Your Maintenance. The electrician who came to our place (I believe his name was Rylan) was very professional and thorough. He did a great job. And even better, he came exactly when he said he would. I will definitely be using this company again. Thank you.
