Water Heater Repair in Glendale, CA

  • Leaks – Make sure that you check the area around your water heater for dried water spots, puddles, or dripping water. If you see any of these, call for water heater repair immediately. Water heater leaks can waste a lot of water and, if they get too severe, they can actually damage your home. Common leaks could happen from the valves and gaskets leading into and out of your water heater.
  • Noises – Rumbling water heaters are a pretty common occurrence and they often are the result of mineral deposits and sediment collecting on the bottom of the tank. The layer of minerals or sediment causes the formation of bubbles from the heat from the burner which causes the rumbling noise. In order to fix this, your plumber will drain the tank and clean it out.
  • Rust – If you start to get rust-colored hot water in your home it likely means that your water heater is rusted on the inside. There is a metal rod inside your tank water heater that absorbs all of the small electrical currents in the water that cause rust. If this sacrificial rod deteriorates completely and it isn’t replaced, it can allow the inside of your tank to rust quickly. This issue usually can’t be fixed and often requires the replacement of the water heater.
