Signs of a failing water heater include:

  2. No hot water: If you water heater is producing lukewarm water or cold water, the internal mechanisms can be failing. Electric and gas water heaters can have different issues to diagnose.
  3. Your water heater is rusting: If you notice rust on your water heater or a metallic smell near your water heater, this is a sign of corrosion. We can determine if this is a urgent problem and recommend the best course of action.
  4. Loud noises from your water heater: If your water heater is making strange noises like clanking, popping, or crackling you may have sediment built up in the tank. Flushing the system can solve this issue, but a water heater replacement may be necessary.
  5. Cloudy water: Cloudy hot water can be caused by many things such as dissolved gas in the water or sediment. If this problem continues have you water heater checked to insure that it's not the cause.
