Signs of a Malfunctioning Water Heater


Water Heater Leaks

One of the most common problems homeowners face with their water heaters is leaks. What’s more, these leaks can come from a number of different components, particularly as they get older. If you notice water pooling around your water heater or dripping from the nearby piping, let us know! Where the leak appears helps inform how serious the problem may be.

For example, if the leak is near the top of the water heater, check the piping connections for cracks or signs of rust. In many cases, these leaks can be resolved fairly easily. However, when your water heater springs a leak toward the base, it might be evidence of severe damage. Most often it’s because the tank has cracked open due to age or extensive corrosion. In such cases, you might be better off requesting water heater installation instead.


Water Is Too Hot or Cold

Temperature issues can often be caused by sediment buildup, a malfunctioning thermostat and even when there’s damage to the system’s heating element (only relates to electric models). For models that use natural gas, the problem might be a failed pilot light, which is usually because it’s dirty or malfunctioning. If you’ve noticed an abrupt shift in your supply of hot water or if it’s taking longer than usual to heat up, call a Mark Allen 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 can impact other sections of your plumbing. Rust or discoloration in your hot water is a sign that your water heater is in need of repair. We’ll be happy to take a look and figure out the best course of action to prevent further damage.


Unpleasant Smell/Taste

Even small amounts 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 might be because of a bad anode rod. Even if bad odors aren’t the result of a problem with your water heater, we’ll still try and resolve the issue as soon as we can.
