Signs Your Water Heater Is Damaged


The Water Heater Is Leaking

Just like any other part of your plumbing, the water heater can start leaking. What’s more, leaks can appear in many different parts of your water heater, particularly as they get older. If you notice water pooling around your water heater or dripping from the nearby piping, let us know! The location of the leak can help inform the potential severity of the underlying problem.

For instance, if the leak is near the top of the water heater, check the piping connections for corrosion or cracking. Generally, these kinds of leaks aren’t difficult to resolve. However, when the bottom of the water heater is leaking, it could be a sign of a serious problem. Most often it’s because the tank has cracked open due to age or extensive corrosion. In these cases, it may be best to request a free quote for 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 relates 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. If there’s an unexpected change 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

The older your water heater is, the more susceptible it is to mineral and chemical buildup, which starts to rust the water heater. This rust can eventually lead to corrosion, which may spread to the rest of your property’s plumbing. Stained or discolored water is a sign you should schedule water heater repair. We’ll be happy to take a look and figure out the best course of action, even if that means replacing the water heater entirely.


Unpleasant Smell/Taste

Even trace quantities of rust, chemicals, bacteria or sediment could negatively impact water quality. This can result in discoloration or produce an unpleasant taste or smell. Foul odors are sometimes traced back to a failing anode rod. Even if bad odors aren’t affecting the water heater itself, we’ll still do our best to find out what’s happened.
