Standard tank style water heaters are large storage tanks which contain between 30 and 80 gallons of water. They are highly insulated to help make sure your water will remain nice and hot whenever you want it.
Tank water heaters are normally able to be counted on, though they sometimes have problems. These are some frequently occurring problems that affect standard tank style gas and electric water heaters.
The most common reason there is no hot water in the water heater is a blown fuse. The initial thing one should check is the breaker box.
If the circuit breaker is fine then the heating elements or the thermostat on an electric water heater may be faulty. On a gas water heater, the critical things to check are the pilot and the gas control valve.
Rusty hot water could be due to corrosion of the pipes, water tank, or anode rod. If this remains unresolved, corrosion can cause further deterioration and develop a leak in the water tank. Changing out an anode rod is a fairly uncomplicated process and it often extend the life of your water heater by a few years.
Hot water that is simply discolored, but not rusty might be caused from calcification build up on the heating element or debris inside the tank.
Hot water that has an odor of rotten eggs or sulfur generally is caused by bacteria which has amassed in the water heater tank.
A water leak from the base of the tank can be caused by a number of issues. It could be caused by a temperature and pressure valve, condensation, a leaking gasket, break down of the tank, or draining from the overflow pipe.
Water leaking from the top of the water heater could be due to the hot water outlet or cold water inlet pipes, a faulty temperature and pressure valve, or a loose connection.
There are several reasons why a pilot will not light or stay lit. The pilot light tube might be clogged, there may be air in the gas line, the gas valve might be malfunctioning, or the thermocouple requires changing.
Odd sounds from your water heater such as banging, knocking, hissing, and other sounds frequently take place when there is a buildup of sediment in the bottom of the water heater tank. Hissing could indicate that there is a leak or condensation. The majority of sounds are nothing to worry about, but it's still a good idea to have it inspected.
If you have a sudden decrease in hot water pressure, it might be caused by calcium build up in your pipes or faucets.
