Why Did Your Water Heater Fail?

Conventional tank heaters — water heaters that store a water supply inside a tank, instead of tankless heaters — can fail for a variety of reasons, ranging from leaks to the excess collection of sediment inside the tank.

One of the most common reasons for water heater issues is sediment buildup. Over time, as sediment collects inside the water heater, it can produce an unpleasant, rotten egg-like smell that makes your home’s hot water supply unsuitable for use.

Sediment buildup can also result in your water heater producing loud, unpleasant noises when you use hot water. Luckily, our team can quickly identify sediment-related issues and clean our your tank heater, returning it to normal function.

Water heaters can also develop leaks over time, particularly in pipes and joints. Even relatively small leaks can drain your water heater over the course of the day, resulting in a poor supply of hot water and damage to the area around the heater.

While some leaks can be repaired, others can signal the end of a water heater’s functional life and require a complete tank replacement. Our team can quickly identify leaks and let you know what’s required to return your water heating system to full working condition.

Should You Repair it Yourself?

Repairing a conventional tank water heater is quite a challenging process, especially in the case of issues such as excessive sediment or recurring leaks, both of which can require the heater to be disassembled and cleaned/repaired.

Because of this, we don’t recommend attempting to repair your water heater by yourself. There are also safety risks involved with the repair of any gas or electric water heating system that are important to consider.
