Signs Your Rigby Water Heater is in Need of Repairs

It is not always obvious when your water heater is about to go out, and it can happen at the most inconvenient times. Understanding the signs of what to look for when your water heater needs repairs will help you to prepare in advance so you are not caught without hot water unexpectedly. 

Low Hot Water Pressure

If your cold water can maintain its pressure throughout all the faucets in your home but your hot water struggles to maintain its pressure, it is a sign that your water heater needs to be repaired. This could be due to sediment residue that has built up over time and will need to be removed to restore your pressure and not cause further damage or problems in the future.

Inconsistent Water Temperatures

A drop in hot water or changing and inconsistent water temperatures throughout the day is another way you can tell that your water heater needs to be repaired. This is typically a sign that your water heater is starting to give out and will need repairs in order to keep working effectively. Inconsistent water temperatures can be an indicator of larger issues going on as well, so it is important to have it checked out sooner rather than later.

Strange or Different Noises

Sediments building up at the bottom of your tank can also cause your water heater to start making strange noises. Rumbling or popping noises coming from your water heater is a telltale sign that it is having issues and that the unit itself is starting to fail. This buildup can cause your water heater to overheat, make strange noises, and eventually fail altogether. 

Discolored Water

Your water heater can start to corrode over time, and discolored water is a sign that the anode rod in your tank is not working anymore. This rod is what helps corrosion from occurring inside your tank, so when it fails and your water heater starts corroding, it results in rusty yellow-looking water coming from your faucets. Getting your water heater repaired soon will help to ensure that your whole tank doesn’t rust and can remain in good working condition. 

Why Did My Water Heater Stop Working?

If your Rigby water heater has stopped working altogether, and you have seen some of these earlier signs that it needed repairs, it could be due to a few different factors. While the age of your water heater can be a big factor in why your water heater stopped working, it is not the only reason it quit on you. Many times there is a large amount of sentiment build-up that occurred on the bottom of your tank that caused further problems, leading to your whole element failing on you. If your anode rods stopped working, it may have caused your water heater to corrode and rust from within which will ultimately lead to its lack of functioning as well. Sometimes it is more minor issues that cause your water heater to fail like the water pressure being too high or your water heater having loose fittings. Whatever the case was that it stopped working, our technicians at Rigby Water Heater Repair with DR Heating and Plumbing will help to discover the problem and get it fixed properly and efficiently.
