Gas Water Heater Problems
Some water leaks can be repaired. Water connections at the top of the water heater can sometimes be repaired, if the relief valve leaks it can be replaced, and if the drain valve leaks it can possibly be replaced. If the tank is leaking, the water heater must be replaced.
Not enough or no hot water:
There are several things that can cause this problem, but it is usually the failure of a thermocouple or thermostat on your water heater. This means these parts will have to be replaced.
Rumbling or hammering noise:
This is caused by sediment build up in the bottom of the tank due to lack of properly maintaining the water heater per manufacturer’s suggestion. This sediment makes it difficult for the burner to heat the water. This results in a loss of efficiency. Attempts at removing sediment at this point by draining the tank are always less than satisfactory. The water heater should be replaced to improve energy efficiency and to avoid tank leakage and damage in the near future.
