Common Water Heater Problems in Marion County
It is often the case that homeowners will not recognize problems with a
water heater until faucets and fixtures stop producing hot water. When
this problem occurs, there are a number of potential sources to consider.
You may spot these issues on your own by turning off the power and shutting
off the gas to inspect the water heater tank, or you might simply call
a local ARS® / Rescue Rooter® plumber to perform the inspection
for you. Here’s a closer look at the types of damage that may be
identified when your water heater is not working properly.
Sediment buildup – It is not uncommon for sediment to accumulate at the bottom of the water
heater tank, and left untreated, this buildup can cause serious damage.
To remove sediment and restore proper function, a professional plumber
will need to drain the tank and clean it.
Rust – Water heaters are outfitted with anode rods that attract corrosive minerals
in the water that might promote the development of rust. When an anode
rod has become worn out and needs replacement, rust can damage the tank
liner and contaminate your water.
Corrosion – If rust does get to the point of corroding the water heater liner, you
may see leakage from the water heater tank, which can lead to more serious
problems such as damage to floors and walls.
