Water heating is crucial in residential and commercial plumbing systems, providing hot water for essential tasks like cooking, cleaning, and showering. However, water heating systems are not without their issues. Several problems can arise, from inefficient heating to leaky tanks and faulty thermostats. Therefore, regular maintenance and repairs are required to keep them running smoothly and to avoid unexpected breakdowns.

Signs a Water Heater Needs Repair

When relying on a water heater for daily needs, it’s crucial to identify signs that suggest the unit may need repair. Failure to address a malfunctioning water heating system can lead to expensive repair or replacement costs and significant disruptions to daily routines. Here are common indications of a faulty water heater:

water-drop

Insufficient Hot Water

Insufficient hot water is a typical indication that a water heater requires repair, and several factors can cause this issue. The heating element can wear out over time, causing it to fail and reduce the amount of hot water produced. Another possible cause is sediment buildup in the tank, which can hinder the heating element's efficiency and result in inadequate hot water.

Leaks

When a water heater leaks, it is considered a major issue that necessitates the services of a qualified plumber. Various factors — including a corroded tank, faulty valves or connections, or high pressure in the system — can cause a leak. A leaking water heater may lead to water damage and, in severe circumstances, flooding.

Strange Noises

Popping, hissing, or banging sounds can signal system problems — including sediment accumulation, a loose heating element, or a failed heating system. Sediment buildup can cause water to boil and generate a popping sound when it releases the sediment. Meanwhile, a hissing noise might be caused by a loose heating element, whereas a failed heating system can cause a banging sound.

puddle

Discolored Water

If the water flowing out of the tap is discolored, foggy, or has a metallic taste and smell, this could indicate rust or corrosion inside the water heater tank. Minerals and silt can accumulate in the tank over time, causing corrosion and lowering water quality. Sometimes, the anode rod (designed to protect the tank from rust and corrosion) should be replaced to restore water quality.

Water Heating Plumbing Services and Solutions

Water heating plumbing systems are susceptible to issues requiring professional attention to ensure they function at their best. The following are the most common plumbing services and solutions that building owners may need:

Water Heater Repair and Replacement

A water heater may require repair due to signs like insufficient hot water, discolored water, strange noises, or leaks. Nonetheless, fixing it may not be a permanent solution, and replacing the entire unit may become necessary. Such circumstances arise when the system is old, inefficient, or severely damaged.

Drain Cleaning

Drain cleaning removes clogs and obstacles from drains connected to the water heater. Over time, these drains can become clogged with materials like hair, grease, soap scum, and other debris. At J S Plumbing LLC, we use specialized procedures to clear gutters and restore correct flow, including camera inspection and sewer jetting.

Pipe Repair and Replacement

Sometimes, pipe repairs may involve simple fixes, such as sealing a crack or tightening a joint. However, more severe issues may require the replacement of the entire pipe. A professional plumber can assess the severity of the problem and suggest the best solution that suits specific needs and budgets.
