The hot water heater is the most important yet most overlooked appliance in your home. It can also be one of the most difficult to care for if you haven’t kept up with it in quite some time. A water heater is not like a microwave or a washing machine, where you can install it, use it, and pay it no mind.

You need to keep an eye on your water heater, its temperature, how efficiently it runs, and so much more. The water heater is the heart of your home. It provides hot water to all of your showers, bathtubs, sinks, washing machine, dishwasher and any other appliance in the home. The water heater also helps you heat your home if you have baseboard heaters. This means that if the water heater fails, or is not running efficiently, you could suffer in many areas of your daily life.

If you are experiencing issues with your home’s hot water supply, give us a call today to schedule our Bethesda water heater repair service. Our team at 24/7 Plumbing & Drain LLC is here to answer your questions, offer repairs, and install a new water heater if necessary.

Most Common Water Heater Problems

The most common problem you will experience with a water heater is the loss of hot water throughout the home. This means you will not be able to take a warm shower, wash your hands with warm water, run the dishwasher or run the washing machine until the problem is resolved. It could be as simply as a breaker trip in the home’s electrical panel. Or it could be a much more intricate issue that requires the skills of a licensed plumber. Some other common water heater problems include the following:

  • Strange noises: A home is known for making weird noises, especially if it is a newer home that is still settling. Older homes will make noises too. Any noise you hear that is unfamiliar should be examined immediately, especially if it is coming from the area where your water heater is located. The noises could mean that there are repairs needed to the unit.
  • Your water smells: If the water coming out of your sink faucets or shower spigots smells, you likely have an issue with your water heater. Water that smells foul could be a sign that there is bacteria growing in the water heater of your home. An experienced plumber can drain the heater and clean it so you do not become ill.
  • Leaks: If you ever find a leak near your water heater you should call a plumber immediately. A leak can be a sure sign that the unit needs to be repaired or even replaced. Letting a leaking water heater go without repair could wind up leading to a tank that bursts.

Does Your Water Heater Require Repair?

If any of the following signs are exhibited by your water heater you need to call an experienced plumber from 24/7 Plumbing & Drain LLC to schedule an appointment for repair immediately:


  • Broken or leaky valves: If any of the valves on the water heater have water around them or you find one that is broken, you need to schedule an appointment for repair.
  • Popping or bubbling sounds: When your water heater makes a noise that sounds like something is popping inside of it there is too much mineral in the water. Have the tank drained and cleaned.
  • Water that is dirty: Is the water in your shower or kitchen sink brown? Dirty water is a sure sign of water heater repair if there are no fire hydrants being flushed in your neighborhood.
  • Connections with rust: Any connection on the water heater that has rust on it needs to be replaced.

Water Heater Installation

Has your water heater shown any of the problem signs mentioned earlier? If so, they could be serious signs that the unit needs to be replaced instead of repaired. The only way to know for sure is by having an experienced plumber from 24/7 Plumbing & Drain LLC inspect the heater before you make a decision. Most water heaters last anywhere from 12 to 13 years, which is why it’s imperative to know when it was installed, especially if you bought a home recently and didn’t have it installed yourself.

Is the Water Heater Beyond Repair?

The most obvious sign that any water heater is past the point of repair is when you find water in puddles around the base of the unit. Just be sure to check where the water is coming from before deciding to replace the unit. You very well could have a leak from another appliance or a ground water issue if the unit is in your basement. If the water is coming from the water heater, it is definitely time to replace it. A leaky water heater is a sure sign that the water heater is past its prime and could be coming close to bursting.
