What Your Water Heater Could Be Missing

Here are the signs that your water heater might need a little help.

Clean Water

Your water heater could be missing out on clean or pristine water. If it’s missing out on this, the first thing that you might notice is some odd occurrences with your water’s color or smell. What you’re typically battling against is hard water. Hard water is full of calcium and magnesium. Calcium and magnesium aren’t harmful to your personal health, but they are harmful to the health of your this system. Don’t wait for your water to clear up. It’s going to reduce its capacity to provide the hot water you need.


When you have hard water plaguing your home’s water heater, then you might have a problem with your home’s water heater capacity. When there’s build-up in your water heater system, you’re also going to notice reduced capacity with your home’s water supply. This might manifest as a lack of hot water in your home or a lack of water in general. Either way, it’s important that you address the issue as soon as possible.

Proper Thermostat Settings

Is your water too hot? If this is the case, then it typically means that your water heater’s thermostat is set far too high. The U.S. Department of Energy recommends that you set your home’s thermostat to 120° Fahrenheit. Anything above this is not only excessive, but it can also hurt your home in the process.

A Pristine Tank

Make sure that your tank is as pristine as possible. If it isn’t, it could be due to one of the following problems.

  • Leaks: Water leaks might be attributed to something like stuck valves, a leak from a nearby plumbing connection, overheating, or improper water pressure.
  • Odd Noises: Have you noticed that there are many odd noises coming from your home’s water heater? The most common ones are sounds like rumbling or banging. These noises can lead to bigger problems. We’ll help you with this. 
  • Discolored Water: Sediment build-up is often the cause of discolored water in your home. The discolored water comes with the build-up starts to break off of the walls of your tank and make its way into your water.
