There could be a number of reasons that your hot water is not running. Here are some of the more common problems to help you decide if you need to repair or replace your heater.
If you are always running out of hot water then it is possible that the thermostat needs adjusting so that the water in the tank is hotter. The tank itself may be too small and unable to supply the amount of hot water that you need. The tank could also be leaking or malfunctioning internally. The professional plumbers at 247 Leakmasters can help fix all of these problems.
If your hot water is too hot, the first place to check is the heater thermostat. If it is set too high try testing it by turning it down and checking the temperature again after a few hours to see if it is cooler. If this doesn’t fix the problem, the thermostat may be faulty. This is easily fixed by a professional plumber.
An issue with the heating element or power supply will mean that the water takes a long time to reheat. Alternatively, sediment or rust could have built up around the elements causing problems.
If the water from your faucet is a rusty-brown color, or if it smells or tastes strange, the first step is to figure out if the issue is with the source line into your house or the water heater itself. If both hot & cold faucets are affected, the problem is with your water source. If only the hot water is affected then you have a high concentration of minerals in your hot water heater. Your 247 Leakmaster plumber will be able to tell you if it is possible to repair the tank, or if a replacement is necessary.
If the water tank is leaking, then it has probably corroded from the inside out to the external housing and the tank should be replaced without delay. If the valve beneath the tank is leaking then you may be able to have the valve replaced - although this is usually the first sign of more serious problems.
