How to know if your
water heater needs repair

There are several telltale signs that indicate your water heater may require repair. Firstly, if you find that your hot water supply has become insufficient or completely nonexistent, it's a clear indication of a problem. This could be due to a malfunctioning heating element, a faulty thermostat, or sediment buildup. Secondly, if you notice unusual noises, such as rumbling, popping, or banging sounds coming from your water heater, it may signify sediment accumulation or a failing heating element. Thirdly, the presence of water leaks around the water heater should not be ignored, as they can cause significant damage if left unattended.

Tips / Troubleshooting

While the actual repair of the water heater should be left to professional plumbers, there are several things you can do right away to get the problem under control before plumbers can get there.

Check the power supply

Ensure that the water heater is receiving power. Check the circuit breaker or fuse box to make sure the breaker hasn't tripped or the fuse hasn't blown. If it has, reset or replace it as necessary.

Inspect the pilot light

For gas water heaters, check if the pilot light is lit. If it's out, follow the manufacturer's instructions to relight it. If the pilot light won't stay lit or you smell gas, turn off the gas supply immediately and call a professional.

Inspect for leaks

Check for any visible leaks around the water heater, including fittings, valves, and the tank itself. Tighten loose connections or replace faulty components as necessary. If the tank is leaking, it's best to contact a professional for repair or replacement.

Schedule a Repair

If any of these signs ring a bell, it's time to call A-Total Plumbing to schedule a repair.
