Signs that You Need Water Heater Repair

At On-Deck Plumbing, we understand that the comfort of a hot shower is something no one wants to do without. Unfortunately, your ability to take a hot shower depends on the state of your water heater, which can break down just like any machine. Our team wants to help you keep your water heater in the best possible condition so you can continue to enjoy the comfort it provides, and to help you do that, we’ll be going over a few signs to look for that will let you know if you need water heater repair.

  • Inconsistent Temperature. One sign that you might need water heater repair is inconsistent water temperatures. If the water from your shower or faucet can’t seem to settle on a consistent temperature, you probably have mineral deposits on your tank’s heating elements. Our team at On-Deck Plumbing can get rid of these deposits, so you can shower in comfort once more.
  • Cloudy Water. Another sign you need water heater repair is cloudy or discolored water. If the water from your taps starts to contain rust flecks or turn brown, then your water heater is most likely the culprit. In this situation, we encourage you to call our team as soon as possible to come inspect the problem and implement a solution.
  • Strange Noises. The third warning sign that we at On-Deck Plumbing will cover here is strange noises coming from your tank. A little bit of noise is not cause for alarm, but if your water heater starts to make loud popping, cracking, or banging sounds, you probably need water heater repair. If you notice a change in your heater’s noise level, we recommend calling a professional to come inspect the issue.
