Leaking – Diagnosing Problems
We rarely think of our tank-style unit until we get hit by ice cold water during the morning shower. It’s all comfortable until that day comes. Though we advise to always call the plumbing professionals for these types of issues, there are some things that you can do that might fix problem.
Fails to deliver sufficient hot water or no hot water at all – check to see if the pilot light has gone out. If it did, re-light it. Another reason is maybe the thermostat is set too low. Make some adjustments and see what happens. Do not hesitate to contact a specialist for professional plumbing services.
Fails to deliver enough hot water – This could be mean a bigger problem that you really can’t fix yourself but check for leakage from pipes under the hot water heater, leakage from the tank, or if you’re hearing unusual noises from the tank, that could be sediments that accumulated overtime.
Soft Spongy Floor or Water near the Heater– The obvious conclusion is that the water tank may be leaking but it could also be a loose valve or a leaky pipe so it is recommended to do a little investigation. If it is a loose valve, you can simply tighten it. If the leaks persist, call a specialist immediately.
- Flush the tank to remove sediment buildup
- Assess the relief valve operation
- Thoroughly examine for leaks
- Examine the sacrificial anode rod
- Install a drip pan
- Install an insulation blanket or jacket
