Common Water Heater Problems
Lack of hot water is just one problem common with water heaters. Other problems that can indicate it’s time to get the water heater repaired include:
- Warm but not hot water – If your water won’t heat as high as it should, then you could have any number of problems ranging from an undersized water heater to crossed connections somewhere in the system.
- Water is too hot – If the water is running too hot and the thermostat seems to be set properly, you may have a thermostat problem.
- The water heater is leaking – Leaks indicate problems that need to be addressed and can be due to gasket problems, loose heating element bolts, stuck valves, or an actual leak from the water tank.
- Water is discolored – Corrosion inside the water tank can lead to discolored water, and this often comes from a failing anode rod that needs to be replaced.
- Noises are coming from the water heater – Loud banging noises, popping noises, or bubbling noises are not normal and should not come from your water heater, so they indicate it’s time to consider replacement.

Water Heater Repair vs. Replacement
When your water heater is not working properly, you must decide between replacing it and repairing it. To make this decision, first consider how old the water heater is. If it is 10 or more years old, investing a lot of money into a repair isn’t always the best choice. If it is newer, then you will have several years of functional use out of it, and repair makes more sense.
Second, consider the overall cost of the repair. If you will spend close to the amount of a new water heater to repair your unit, then replacement may be more cost-effective in the long run. To make sure you make the right choice, consider talking to the pros at DYZ Plumbing. Our highly-trained plumbers will help you determine the right choice for your water heater needs.

FAQs About Water Heater Repair
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions we hear about water heater repair:
- How long should my water heater last? Traditional storage water heaters typically last 10 years. Tankless water heaters may continue working for up to two decades.
- Can I repair my water heater without having to buy a new water heater? That depends on the unit’s age and condition and the cost of the repair. As long as your water heater is less than a decade old and doesn’t have a structural leak, a repair may be possible. We’ll offer an estimate before work begins so you can make the most cost-effective choice.
- What are the signs I should repair my water heater? Some of the most common water heater problems include no hot water, leaks, discolored or smelly water, strange noises, and power issues.
- Why doesn’t my water heater work as well as it used to? Sediment buildup is the most likely reason for decreased performance. Professional service aims to remove this sediment so your water heater runs more efficiently.
- What color should the burner flame be? The flame should glow steady and blue. If it flickers or looks yellowish-orange, you could have a carbon monoxide leak. Turn off the water heater and call us right away!
