Major Signs of Water Heater Damage
Water pooling beneath your water heater is a wakeup call. Bad leaks often flow from cracks in tank connections, fittings, and pipes under pressure and need to be repaired. These are often the result of time and wear, but the worst leaks come from corroded cracked tanks which must be replaced.
Hot Water Issues
The first problems most people notice with a broken water heater are weird fluctuations in water temperature. This can be a decrease in hot water or having no hot water at all. These issues can be the result of a faulty thermostat, which means you may only need to replace a part and not an entire heater. Our plumbers can take a closer look and find out if the problem is a heating element, the thermostat, or just a blown out pilot light.
Strange Noises, Smells, And Colors
Other signs of a problematic Water heater can be an assault on the senses. You might smell the stench of rotten eggs out of nowhere, hear the heater make strange noises suddenly, or see a strange rusty color or gritty sediment build up in the flow of water from your tap. An experienced Santa Cruz plumber will know what to look for and how to help.
