3 Signs Your Water Heater Needs Repair

Water heaters are wonderful inventions that allow us to take relaxing steamy showers. But for your water heater to function, it needs maintenance from time-to-time. Common signs your water heater requires repairs include abnormal noises, a lack of hot water in your home, and discolored water. If you notice any of these signs, give Linn-Benton Plumbing a call.

1. Your Water Heater is Experiencing Mineral Deposits

As your water heater operates, it collects mineral deposits along the bottom of its tank. As these minerals build up, they start to pop, crack, or rumble when the tank is in use. The noises are a sign your water heater needs cleaning. Flushing your water tank at least once a year prevents mineral buildup, so you can have hot water without the extra noise.

2. There is No Hot Water in Your Home

The telltale sign that your water heater is malfunctioning is a cold shower. If only cold water is coming out of your faucet, your water heater requires maintenance. Common causes of cold water are due to your water heater’s heating element giving out, sediment build-up, or a faulty thermostat. Whatever the case, give your local plumbing professionals a call to check it out. We’ll make sure your water heater receives the appropriate repairs to get it back in action.

3. Your Home’s Water is Discolored

As your water heater ages, its interior rusts and corrodes. The rust causes the water within your heater to become murky and discolored. Often, it will look reddish-brown. Once the water reaches your shower, you’ll notice discoloration. In some cases, the rust may cause your water to smell or taste different, too. If you notice any of these abnormalities, turn off your shower and give Linn-Benton Plumbing a call. We’ll take a look at your water heater and replace rusted parts to ensure your home’s water is clean, clear, and safe to shower in.
