Water Heater Troubleshooting & On-site Inspection

Water Heater Troubleshooting

The most common issue with water heaters is leaking. They can leak for a number or reasons. Frequently a leak can be the result of something minor like a loose-fitting connection. It can be fixed in a matter of minutes. However, the leak could be the result of a major water heater issue like a deteriorating tank. In this case replacement will be relevant.

To diagnose the problem and determine whether your current water heater needs replacement or simply repairs, it would be best to call the most reliable provider of water heater repairs and troubleshooting in Brea/Orange County Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning.

Common Issues when troubleshooting a Water Heater

When we arrive on-site to discover and troubleshoot the main cause of your hot water heater leaking, we will pay attention to a couple factors that are common in such cases:

  • Rust and deterioration play the major part in producing water heater tank leaks.
  • If the tank has burst, unfortunately there is no repair option available. If the pressure release valve malfunctioned, excess pressure has built up as a result, causing the unit to burst.
  • Tank water heaters are usually equipped with drainage spigots so that tanks can be emptied and flushed if needed. If the leak is small, most likely it is a result of a loose/broken spigot.
  • If the leak is discovered from the top of the tank, it should be an easy-to-fix issue with the cold water inlet valve, loose pipe connection or pressure release valve. All of the mentioned issues can be repaired without the need for replacement.
