Common Water Heater Issues

Water heaters are a forgotten item in most homes, until the day that you no longer have hot water. And when you are forced to focus on your water heater, all that you know is you need it repaired quickly. A home just can’t function without hot water. But what many homeowners don’t take into consideration is that there are many issues and warning signs that a water heater is about to fail. And recognizing these issues is the best way to avoid a cold morning shower.

No hot water could be the result of a utility issue. If your only gas appliance is your water heater, then you would not know that the service is faulty until you endure a cold shower. This is a sudden situation and not one that will evolve slowly. But if your heating element or thermostat is worn out, you might have noticed that your water temperature was not as consistent or reliable as in years past. This is a slower occurring issue and also one that can be easily repaired by the pros from Tweedy Plumbing.

Leaks at your water heater, as a rule, also appear slowly. You might notice a small drip from a fitting, valve or pipe long before there is water gushing out of the offending crack or hole. Regular visual inspections of your water heater will help you locate leaks when they are small and easy to repair. The only leak that is going to be very costly is one that is the result of rust or corrosion on the holding tank of the water heater. There is no safe or effective way to repair a hole in the tank. You will need to replace the entire unit.

The final issue that many homeowners overlook for an extended time is related to contamination inside the water heater tank. You might notice an odd smell to your hot water or even a change in the color and clarity of the water. Hot water that is gritty or has a tan or yellow tone is the result of rust or sand in the holding tank. Water that is more cloudy and has a sour or odd smell is most often due to bacterial contamination. Rust and sand are best treated by draining the tank and rinsing it to remove the sediment. Bacterial contamination can sometimes be eliminated by turning the temperature of the water heater to above 150 degrees. If this does not eliminate the bacteria, then the tank should be drained and washed to kill the contaminants.

The Different Types Of Water Heaters

As a full-service plumbing company, we train our plumbers to work on all makes, models, and types of water heaters. The most common units are the traditional models with the large holding tank. And a conventional water heater can be configured to use gas or electricity to heat the water.

Less common, but growing in popularity, are the tankless water heaters. These units have no tank and only heat water when there is a demand for it. And while these newer water heaters look very different from the traditional style, their components are similar.  And they can be repaired as easily as the tank-style water heater. And the tankless water heaters can also be purchased in either a gas or electric model.

Water Heater Repair in Laguna Beach is very common and regardless of the type or brand of water heater in your home, there is a good chance that any issue can be repaired for a fraction of the cost of a new water heater. So don’t resign yourself to a huge price tag when you have no hot water. Call 949-647-4785 and let a Tweedy Plumbing pro save you a substantial amount with a fully warrantied water heater repair in Laguna Beach, Ca.

    Everyone from scheduling to service were great. Honest, to the point, and knowledgeable. They were able to fit me into their busy schedule withing hours...SAME DAY!!! I would recommend them in the Newport Mesa are for sure. FYI- they replaced the pilot assembly kit/thermocouple in my GE water heater. Not an easy task as it requires dis-assembly and taking the heater pan out.
