Common Hot Water Heater Problems and What You Can Do
If your water heater is acting up, do not automatically assume you should contact a plumber. There are steps you can take that will potentially solve your problem before making a call. You should:
- Examine the temperature-pressure relief valve. It serves to maintain pressure within the boiler.
- Make sure the valve is in working order. You can drain water away from the overflow pipe by lifting or lowering the lever on the valve.
- Check the water temperature. If it’s not warm enough, add some insulation in the form of foam water pipes to keep the water warm as it travels from the heater to faucets.
- Check the water temperature (again!). If the water is too hot, lower the thermostat. If the water is still too hot after adjusting the thermostat, it might be necessary to have the wiring checked out. If your water heater takes a while to reheat, there might be sediment buildup on the heating elements.
- Examine the temperature setting on the water heater. The temperature should be at 150 degrees Fahrenheit or less.
There are other common causes of water heater failure that a plumber will certainly be needed for.

A lack of hot water can also stem from loose wiring or a water tank that isn’t large enough for your family’s needs.
Low hot water pressure tends to result from calcium deposits sediment buildup or rust. If popping, banging or hissing noises occur, there is likely an abundance of scale on the heating elements. Hot water heaters that produce dirty/rusty water likely have excessive corrosion. Discolored water results from scale buildup or excessive sediment.
