However, many times the signs that your hot water needs repair are not quite as obvious as an ice cold shower. You should make sure you know what to look for because a repair is much more affordable than a replacement in the majority of cases, but if you don’t catch the issues in time there is a good chance that the water heater will eventually stop working completely.

One sign of an issue with your hot water heater is water leaking out around its base. Since water heaters in most homes are enclosed somewhere out of sight, many homeowners miss this problem until it’s too late. It can also cause damage to whatever is under the heater. To avoid this problem it is advisable to check on your hot water heater once a month to make sure everything is as it should be. When you check on it some other things to look out for are a high pitched whining sound or a rumbling or popping sound coming from the water heater.

Unlike water leakage, some signs that your hot water heater needs repair are hard to miss. Certain problems with your water heater may cause your water to come out of the tap rust colored. This generally signals that a part of the tank or the pipes that run the water from it are rusting. This should be treated quickly because a small amount of rust does not take long to turn into a large amount in a wet environment. If you have a gas powered hot water heater you should be on the lookout for a rotten egg scent in the water because that could mean gas is leaking into the water tank.
