Our water heater repair in Hamilton team has the experience and dedication to make sure your family always has enough hot water. Over the years that we’ve been in business, our experts have seen these common hot water tank issues crop up again and again.
Leak Near The Top?
Sometimes, there is a leak near the top of a hot water heater. With an electric unit, it might be one of several different things. Either the hot or cold outlet pipe could have come loose. It could very well be an inlet valve that’s leaking.
Got Water Temperature Issues?
There are several common complaints about hot water tanks that we hear. One of the most common centres around water temperature problems. Either the water doesn’t heat up enough or its too hot. In most cases this is a simple fix. The thermostat needs to be adjusted. Quite often it has been accidentally bumped and needs to be reset.
If the water doesn’t heat up when you want it to, the problem could very well be a faulty thermostat. That’s a job for the experts on our water heater repair in Hamilton team.
Does The Water Smell?
There are several different reasons why strong odours are coming from the hot water you get from a faucet. Run the hot water for a few minutes and then check the water tank. If there’s a smell like rotten eggs, you might have bacteria growing on the inside of your water tank.
Flushing it out completely should get rid of the problem.
Your Water Heater Makes Strange Noises
Another common issue we find is knocking, banging or hissing noises coming from a hot water heater. There are generally two reasons for this common problem. We generally find scale building up on the elements or sediment gathering at the very bottom of the water tank.
There are some other possible reasons for strange noises coming from your water tank including too much pressure on the inside or a leak.
Finally, rusty or dirty water is another common issue. Usually it means there is rust at work on the inside of the tank. Another possible explanation can be an anode rod that’s been corroded.
