Typical Issues with Water Heaters
There are very common issues that occur with water heaters. For example, if your water is discolored or rusty then you most likely have rust forming in your tank (and this can usually be addressed through the addition of an anode rod in your tank). Strange noises are usually due to a build-up of sediment in the tank that can be resolved through flushing. Then there are leaks that are caused by cracks within the water heating or loose fittings. If the water never reaches the right temperature, then the repair will typically involve the heat source for the water heater.
Various Types of Water Heaters
