After getting a new hot water tank installed, follow the instructions that are written in the manual before the first use. Here are some tips for troubleshooting storage water heater problems.
1. Loss of water
If there is sudden loss of water in the tank, then the first thing you need to check is the pilot light in gas water tank. If the light is still burning, then look for the instructions in the owner’s manual to see what could be wrong. In case of electric heaters, check the back panel for the breaker. It might have got tripped, causing the water to leak. If both the breaker and the pilot light are working in right manner, then you need to get the plumbing checked and it is advisable that you call in the experts to do the job.
2. Noises while heating the Water
If you are hearing rumbling and popping noises when the heater is operational, then this is an indication for the sediment built up around the element. The element helps the water to get heated. If there is too much of calcium and sediment deposit on the element, then the heater will take a lot more time to heat up the water, increasing your electricity consumption by huge margin. If you are going to ignore the deposits for long time, then it may eventually harm the water heater. It is advisable that you get the tank flushed twice a year by a professional water tank expert.
3. Water seepage
If the water is leaking from the tank, then look for an area that has a water deposit underneath. It can be around the drain valve, gas control valve, pressure relief valve or the electrical elements. If your tank is old, look at the joints for any signs of corrosion. Depending on the condition of the leakage, the professional tank experts will advice you whether it can be repaired or you have to replace the tank.
4. Low pressure
If the pressure of the water is low in the tank, then you will experience a very little flow of water from the outlet. The reasons behind can be sediment deposit or a failing shut off valve. To get the pressure checked, it is advisable that you call in the professional to look for the exact problem.
