1. Why does my hot water smell bad?
If you notice unpleasant odors when you use hot water, it could be your water heater. Bacteria overgrowth or eroded anode rods are the most common causes of foul scents in a water heater.
2. How do I light the pilot on my water heater?
Many older gas water heaters have a pilot light, which is responsible for warming the water in the tank. To properly light your water heater’s pilot, follow these simple steps or the manufacturer’s instructions.
3. Why is my water heater making popping noises?
Popping noises from your water heater are generally caused by sediment and debris building up in your tank. Flushing your water heater can clear out the buildup.
4. Why don’t I have hot water?
The most common reasons why hot water heaters stop producing hot water are leaks, a tripped breaker, mineral buildup, a broken dip tube, or an out pilot light.
5. Why is there water coming out of the side of my water heater?
If water is coming out of the side of your water heater, then you likely have issues with your temperature or pressure relief valve.
6. Can I convert to a tankless water heater?
It is possible to convert your conventional water heater into a tankless water heater. However, it’s a very involved process that is best left to professionals.
7. How does a tankless water heater work?
Tankless water heaters work by warming water on demand using a heating element, which is different from conventional units that preheat the water and store it in a tank.
