Common water heater problems, causes and solutions

There are various reasons for a faulty water heater and its professional plumbers to diagnose best and repair them. It’s however, essential you know there is a problem in the first place to be able to call the experts in.
Here are the common issues with water heaters, its causes and solutions:
  • Water temperature problemsWater temperature issues are a common complaint. And most of the time, it’s resolved by adjusting the water tank temperature because you may have accidentally changed it. Some people also have the habit of reducing the water tank temperature during summer months to save energy. In this case, increasing the temperature fixes the problems for the cold winter months. However, if the water doesn’t heat after increasing the temperature increases, it’s usually because of a faulty thermostat. The problem can be rectified by replacing the thermostat. There are other reasons for water temperature fluctuations like a water tank leak and mineral deposits. They are better treated by professionals and not ignored. Our professionals will take a look at your water heater to ascertain and resolve the problem for you.
  • Discolored or smelly waterThis is another common water heater problem. Water discoloration is usually caused by high mineral deposits like iron and copper, making pipes rust. It can in time lead to plumbing system problems. Installing a water softener system generally resolves the condition. In the case of smelly water, there are many possible reasons for it. Suppose it smells like rotten eggs or sewage, then it may be because of bacterial growth in the water tank. Thoroughly flushing the water tank usually resolves the problem. If the smell persists, then a corroded anode rod may be the problem, and it needs replacement. If it’s a garlic smell you get from the pipes, it’s usually because the pilot light needs relighting. But if it’s a gas smell, then it may be an emergency. Do not attempt to do anything but call the professionals right away.
  • Noisy water heaterNoisy water heaters aren’t a threat of any kind. They are just annoying. There are various reasons for the noise like excessive build up of minerals. Flushing the water heater out at least once a year helps prevent it. A deteriorating heating element can also make noise, and replacing it is the solution. However, you have to call professionals immediately if it’s a boiling sound you hear. It is usually the sound of dangerous pressure accumulation caused by the unit overheating.
  • Water heater leakageWater leaks are quite apparent because you will notice water pools near the unit. There may also be water dripping from the unit or pipes leading to it. The leak can also lead to a drop in the water temperature. You need to know why the leak is to repair it because there are many causes for it. For example, it may be age, a loose drain valve, a poor water heater installation, poor maintenance, or the tank’s pressure. If the cause of the leak is a loose valve, tightening it resolves the problem. However, if it’s a corroded water tank, then it needs replacement.
  • Damaged gas control or burnerWater heaters won’t work efficiently if the burner or gas control is dirty or non-functional. Replacing the damaged burner assembly or thermocouple as it’s also known, gives a solution. You can do it yourself, but only after first turning off the gas and water connections. However, you can always, and it’s better to call the professionals if in doubt. In need for water heater repair near you in Toronto? Call Dima Plumbing now!

  • We are so glad we were able to find John, he is such a professional and so friendly. We've been in our house about a year and found a leak in our ceiling directly under one of our bathrooms. John was able to find that a gasket was missing from the bathtub drain, and also the toilet gasket was replaced as there was water around it. Everything done in less than an hour. Hoping this will fix our problem, but I am confident that we won't have leaks anymore! Thanks John!

    We were very happy with the service we got from John. He was prompt in his response and came to our home quickly. He was able to resolve our plumbing issue efficiently and at a fair price. He even gave us a few hacks on how we can keep our pipes running smoothly to avoid similar issues in the future. We would definitely use him again and recommend him to our friends and family.

    Incredible service! +++ So glad to have found John, as now our go to master plumber. He is very professional, reasonably priced, highly skilled and a true gentleman. Getting an accurate quote from John was quick and easy - I submitted pictures with my job list using their web form, received a fair quote within the hour, and a few minutes later I was able to book a convenient time with him. He came on time and communicated 30 minutes on the dot before arrival. He installed a handheld bidet sprayer with hot and cold water connection and a pair of water hammer arrestors for my front loading high efficiency washer. He worked clean and efficiently and checked everything with me before wrapping up. Highly recommend him and will be calling him for all my plumbing needs going forward.

  • John is an absolute pleasure to deal with. One morning woke up to some really bad water stains on the kitchen ceiling due to some kind of leak in the bathroom above.. Reached out to John who was very attentive with excellent communication. He instructed me to take a couple photos and answer a few questions. He was able to diagnose the problem accurately and provide me with a quote for the work in a quick email exchange. He came, resolved my problem and everything was done well and completely transparent with everything.. He also took a look at another issue I had and provided great guidance there as well. I could not be more happy with the service John provided. He's a fantastic plumber and a great authentic, friendly guy. Look no further if you need a great plumbing services.

    John did 3 separate jobs around my house including adding a filter outside, fixing a pipe inside my garage, and replacing a leaky toilet shut-off valve. Very happy with the quality of the work, and John took the time to answer my questions and explain what he was doing and why. Overall very satisfied and would use him again.

    I’d used John’s service twice within last several months. First to replace the basket strainers with the kitchen sink, he also replaced the piping without charging extra when he saw the pipes not installed properly from before. Second time was to repair a leaking toilet. John was able to identify the issue when I explained to him on the phone and he came and fixed it. He also fixed other issue on the day he visited and the charges are reasonable. Will definitely use the again

  • We had a problem with a leaking toilet that had to be fixed. I contacted John with my questions and received the response very promptly. After I was ready to go ahead with the repairs he was able to squeeze me into his schedule on the next day. He arrived on time and did a great job fixing the leak. It has been more than 8 months since that day and we have not had a single problem again. Another good thing that came out of his visit is that if something is going to go wrong with the plumbing in the condo I don't need to spend time searching for someone I trust with the plumbing work, I will definitely call him again.

    I initially thought I needed a complete faucet change but after review, John mentioned I required a new cartridge which was not as expensive as initially quoted. I booked John for his honesty and integrity as I sent the same details to several other companies who quoted $800-$1200. John came within a 24 hour turn around time and fixed the leak in my faucet! Thank you again

    Needed to replace the Thermostatic valve in our shower. John Dima was on-time very professional and got to work right away. What I liked was how he worked; He put on shoe covers at the front door, was careful not to scratch or damage the shower, was constantly wiping down the surface to make sure it was clean and free of any debris. Awesome Job. I would recommend Dima Plumbing and will call upon him if we need future servicing.

    We hired Dima Plumbing to replace our outdoor faucet since it was rusty and our old hose was corroded stuck on it. John came on time, was polite and personable, very efficient with the job, and offered helpful tips on what do with outdoor faucets during the winter. The highlight for me was watching John work. It was a quick and straightforward replacement (less than 30 mins) but you could see the years of knowledge and experience with how smoothly John replaced the old faucet, cleaned away the years of rust and corrosion, and attached the brand new bib. It was like watching those mastercraftsmen working effortlessly with their tools to scrape and sculpt something from nothing. Highly recommend John and Dima Plumbing!

    I recently used Dima Plumbing to replace an old toilet and its shut-off valve. I highly recommend their services. John's quote was reasonable compared other plumber's quotes I received. He was very prompt in everything - replying to my request for a quote, answering my questions, booking an appointment, and arriving for the work. He did the job efficiently, following COVID guidelines, and explained well what needed to be done. If I need future plumbing work, I will contact Dima Plumbing and will recommend this plumbing firm to my friends and family.
