What Are The Signs That I Need Water Heater Repair?

It’s not always easy to know when you need water heater repair. Here are some of the most common signs that you may need an expert to take a look:

1. You hear banging, rumbling, or popping sounds. 

Noises are usually caused by sediment buildup in the tank, which needs to be taken care of by a professional to avoid dangerous pressure buildup. South Carolina has relatively soft water, so this is less of a concern than in other areas of the US. 

2. Your water is coming out discolored or rusty.

Discolored water may mean the anode rod isn’t stopping the tank’s interior from rusting, or you may have rusty pipes. Regular heater maintenance and repair ensures your anode rod is in good shape and no unwanted mineral sediments are in the tank. 

3. Your water smells strange. 

Bacteria can grow quickly in a malfunctioning water heater. If your water smells odd, it may be time to replace the unit. 

4. Hot water is running out much more quickly than usual or is inconsistent. 

This may indicate a failing heater or faulty thermostat. A trained repair person can help diagnose the problem and fix it.

5. You’ve spotted water leaks on or around the tank. 

Leaky valves and pipes can damage your home. If you see water coming from the water heater, call a professional.

6. Your energy bills are suddenly higher than usual. 

When a water tank has mineral buildup, its efficiency is reduced. It’ll have to work much harder to heat your water, using more energy in the process.

How Often Should a Water Heater Be Replaced?

Replacing the heater is often more cost-effective than the continuous repairs needed to keep an older unit running. Depending on the type of heater and how well it’s been maintained, a typical water heater lasts anywhere from 8 to 15 years.

Tankless models tend to last longer, but once you hit the 10-year mark, look for signs that you need a water heater replacement.

What Types of Water Heaters Do We Service?

The team at Waldrop are experts in all water heater types and models. 


A traditional water heater has a large 30- to 50-gallon tank that heats and stores the preheated water. Once the hot water is used up, it refills and begins the heating process again. Traditional heaters tend to have a high flow rate, so you can use multiple hot water taps at once. They’re fairly simple and easy to replace. 


Gas water heaters run on propane and provide hot water faster than electric options. Gas water heater installation is quick, as they’re simpler to install than other types.


Electric water heaters are often the most affordable and offer better energy efficiency than gas heaters. They’re also a good option for homes without gas lines, as they can be used anywhere with electricity. 


Tankless water heaters — also called “demand-type” water heaters — heat water only when you want it, giving you a practically unlimited hot water supply. A high-efficiency tankless water heater can decrease your utility bills, get hot water to your tap faster, and qualify your home for federal tax rebates.
