Cloudy, Smelly Water

Cloudy water is the result of corrosion and mineral deposits. Whenever there’s evidence of corrosion, the danger of a damaging leak increases. If there’s a metallic smell or taste to the water, it’s a definite sign you will need to call a plumbing expert.

Leaking Tank

If there’s water around, or under, the water heater tank, do not ignore it! You should call an expert ASAP, as a replacement is more than likely needed. A small leak can turn into a flooded basement quickly!

Faulty Pressure Relief Valve

The pressure relief valve is a vital component of your water heater. It prevents a dangerous buildup of pressure inside the tank & when it’s not working properly it can cause the water heater to explode. Your valve should be tested by a trusted plumber once a year.

Some of these signs are more common knowledge to homeowners than others but you might unknowingly be ignoring them! We hope that by bringing these signs to your attention, you will be able to avoid a system breakdown & keep your water heater running RIGHT all year long!
