Common Water Heater Problems

Leaking Tank

If you notice your water heater is leaking, switch off your home’s water valve. It’s usually situated in your basement, near furnace or water heater, or below your kitchen sink.

Then reach Roland J. Down Service Experts at 518-417-2938 without delay. Even a minor leak can cause big damage to your home.

A leaky tank may be indicating you need to replace your water heater.

Not Enough Hot Water

Getting noor very little heated water out of your tap? If you own a gas water heater, the pilot light could be malfunctioning.

If you’re not confident in how to investigate this, give us a call. We’ll manage the problem.

Not enough hot water may also mean that your water heater is giving out and needs to be replaced.

Water is Too Hot or Too Cold

Your water heater may be not the right size. We can help you calculate how much you use and take care of the issue.

Other Water Heater Problems

These symptoms can be an indication that your water heater is about to break:

  • Popping noises coming from the tank
  • Tinted, milky-colored or rusty water
  • Water reeks
  • Leaking pressure relief valve

Since water heaters commonly hold 50 gallons of water, failure can cause a catastrophic flood.

Like with any other appliance, annual maintenance is important. We advise checking out our Advantage Program to potentially avoid problems with your water heater.
