Standard tank style water heaters are large storage tanks which contain 30 to 80 gallons of water. They are immensely insulated to ensure your water will remain piping hot whenever you you desire it.
Tank water heaters are generally dependable, though they can have issues. These are some common problems that affect standard tank style gas and electric water heaters.
The most common reason there is not any hot water in the water heater is a blown circuit breaker. The first thing one should check is the fuse box.
If the fuse box is not a problem then the heating elements or the thermostat on an electric water heater may need replacing. On a gas water heater, the key things to look at are the pilot and the gas control valve.
Rust colored hot water could be due to corrosion of the pipes, water tank, or anode rod. If left untreated, corrosion could eventually progress and result in a leak in the tank. Changing out an anode rod is a fairly simple process and it often extend the life of your water heater by a few years.
Hot water that is only discolored, but isn't rusty could be caused by hard water build up on the heating element or debris inside the tank.
Hot water which has an odor of rotten eggs or sulfur is likely caused by bacteria build up inside the water heater.
A water leak from the base of the tank could be from a few different problems. It could be from a temperature and pressure valve, condensation, a leaking gasket, deterioration of the tank, or draining from the overflow pipe.
Water leaking from above the water heater could be caused by 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 could be broken, or the thermocouple requires replacement.
Strange noises from your hot water heater such as banging, knocking, hissing, and other noises commonly occur when there is a buildup of sediment in the lower portion of the water heater. Hissing could be a sign that there is a leak or condensation. The majority of sounds are benign, but it's still a wise idea to have it checked.
If you experience a recent reduction in hot water pressure, it might be caused by calcium build up in your pipes or faucets.
Tankless water heaters are the most recent breed of water heater. They are more power efficient than their tank counterparts, are more economical to run and tend to have a longer lifespan, but are more expensive up front. They need much less less space and don't run out of hot water, but upon installation can require some extra attachments and re-plumbing or re-routing of gas and water lines.

A tankless water heater uses more gas than a typical heater, and may need the installation of larger gas piping. You also should verify that your current water pipes can accommodate a tankless heater.
One of the most commonly occurring problems in tankless water heaters is no hot water. This may be due to a number of things including a gas, electricity, or water supply problem, ignition failure, an error code in the unit, a blocked pipe, or frozen pipe.
Calcification build up happens a lot and can cause damage to your water heater. Installing a water softener could slow the build up. Another possible solution is to have your water heater flushed every six months with a descaler.
Most tankless water heaters have a screen that displays an error code when there is a problem. There are a broad range of reasons why an error code may show up.
