Are you struggling with not having enough hot water for your daily household needs? Do you smell strong or pungent odors coming from your faucet? Does the temperature of your water vary so much that it’s difficult to take a long shower? These signs, and many more, can signify it’s time to schedule an appointment with a plumber. Westside Plumbing, Inc., is ready to assist when you have a poorly functioning water heater.

3 Signs Your Hot Water Heater May Need to Be Repaired

1. Not Enough Hot Water

A surefire sign of a water heater in need of repair is not having enough hot water for your daily household needs. Are you able to take a shower, but then not have enough hot water to run the dishwasher? Do you only have enough hot water for one load of laundry a day? These are all symptoms of a faulty water heater. 

2. Extreme Water Temperatures

Do you find that one moment the shower water in your bathroom is freezing cold and the next it’s scalding hot? While small variations in water temperature may not mean much, extreme differences may indicate that a new water heater is needed. If you have tried time and time again to set the hot water thermostat but can’t generate a consistent temperature, give our office a call.

3. Smelly or Discolored Water

There are times your household water can have a strange odor or be discolored. Sometimes this happens when an underground pipe has some interior rust. As the season changes from winter to spring, a bit of groundwater surrounding the water tank can infiltrate your plumbing system, causing a slight odor. If there are strong smells – such as rotten eggs – coming from your tap, and noticeably discolored water that won’t disappear after running the faucet, you may need to schedule an appointment with an expert plumber.
