1. Rust In The Water
If you are getting the rust particles in the water that is coming out of the heater than that is an indication of a rusted tank and it must be taken care of on immediate basis. Rust is very harmful to the skin and we often use the heated water to wash our face and to take bath. Make sure that you are calling in the professional to clean the system.
2. No Hot Water From The Heater
If there is no hot water coming out from the heater, then you need to get the heating element checked. Never try to fix the problem by yourself as the heating element has the electrical connection to it. Always call in the hot water heater experts for the job who will be able to make the repairs and take care of the issues.
3. Heater unit emitting a rotten smell
If the hot water unit is emitting a foul smell then it is an indication of a bacteria problem in your water heater. It is quite a simple problem to deal with and you just have to wash the tank out with hydrogen peroxide. Make sure that you are flushing the tank with normal water first and after using the hydrogen peroxide to flush out the bacteria, wash the insides of tank again using a clean water to ensure that there is no solution of hydrogen peroxide left inside the tank
