Common Water Heater Problems

At Mr. Rooter Plumbing, our knowledgeable staff is equipped to handle any water heater problems or repairs. The most common issues we see in Utica homes and businesses include:

  • Lack of hot water: If your system is not producing any hot water, something is wrong. You may need a new heating element.

  • Loud tanks: A water heater that makes noise could be full of sediment that's settled at the bottom. While some debris is normal, excessive buildups can cause damage.

  • Unusual odors: Water with an unpleasant smell could indicate bacterial contamination in your hot water heater. This could render your water supply unsafe.

  • Leaks: If you notice a leak coming from your water heater, you will want to address the problem right away. Leaks can become major problems quickly, damaging your property.

Utica, New York, Water Heater Inspection

The best way to care for your water heater is to schedule regular preventive maintenance visits with our team. During these visits, our licensed plumbers will perform professional water heater inspections with the following steps:

  • Sediment flush: Over time, sediment accumulates in your water heater and settles in your tank. We'll flush out any buildup.

  • Health analysis: Our trained technicians will thoroughly inspect your hot water heater, noting any concerns to keep an eye on in the coming year.

  • Anode rod inspection: Your anode rod helps prevent rust formation, and it is designed to dissolve over time. We'll check to see if you need a rod replacement.

Preventive maintenance visits should be scheduled annually to tune up your system and prevent complicated repairs.
