Why is my water heater making popping noises?

If your water heater is making popping noises, then it likely has sediment accruing at the bottom of the tank and needs to be flushed.

Why is my water heater making popping noises by Pacific Plumbing and Drain in Vancouver WA

Popping noises coming from your water heater are a common indicator of sediment. Every few months, your water heater should be flushed and cleaned to remove sediment and other debris. When too much sediment accumulates, it could interfere with the heating process or cause it to overwork, leading to higher utility bills.

If you don’t flush the tank, increased pressure from hot water could cause the unit to explode.
