Signs of Water Heater Damage to Look Out For



Almost everyone will deal with a leak in their plumbing at some point or another. What’s more, leaks can appear in many different parts of your water heater, especially as they age. If the water heater has pools of standing water or leaks coming from nearby pipes, let us know! The severity of the problem can be partially recognized by where the leak formed.

For instance, leaks near the top of the water heater mean the plumber should check the piping connections for corrosion or cracking. In many cases, these leaks can be resolved fairly easily. However, if the leak is closer to the bottom of the water heater, it might be evidence of severe damage. In most cases it’s because the tank has cracked open due to age or extensive corrosion. In situations like this, you might be better off requesting water heater installation instead.


Water Is Too Hot or Cold

Inconsistent temperatures are sometimes caused by sediment buildup, a malfunctioning thermostat and even when the water heater’s heating element has failed (only applies to electric models). For gas water heaters, the problem may stem from the pilot light going out, which is sometimes only because the components are dirty. When you notice a sudden drop in your supply of hot water or if the water heater needs more time to heat it up, call a McLoughlin Plumbing Heating & Cooling plumbing technician.


Rust or Discoloration

As your water heater ages, it’s more susceptible to mineral and chemical buildup, which may lead to the formation of rust. This rust can eventually lead to corrosion, which may spread to the rest of your property’s plumbing. Rust or discoloration in your hot water is a sign you should schedule water heater repair. Our team of experts can inspect your water heater and determine the best course of action, even if that means replacing the water heater entirely.


Unpleasant Smell/Taste

Even small amounts of rust, chemicals, bacteria or sediment can affect the quality of your water. These substances could cause discoloration or produce an unpleasant taste or smell. Foul odors can often be resolved by replacing the anode rod. Even if bad odors aren’t affecting the water heater itself, we’ll still try and resolve the issue as soon as we can.
