The Top 3 Signs Your Water Heater Needs a Repair

Water Heater Repair

If you look closely, you can see when your water heater needs a repair, and our team at Mallick Plumbing & Heating, Inc. is ready to help you out with that.

Notice one of the 3 signs below? Call us at (301) 804-6759 for a high-quality repair!

Sign #1: Pools of Water Around the Heater

If you notice excess moisture or pools of water around your heater, it may be time for a repair. Loose fittings, connections, and fractures in the tank can all cause leakage – you might even notice the leak gets worse as your water gets hotter because metal expands when it heats up.

Ruined your cozy socks by stepping in a puddle near your water heater? It’s time to call us about a repair.

Sign #2: Strange Noises

Water heater noises are usually a sign that your heater needs fixing. If you hear rumbling noises, sizzling, hissing, crackling, or banging, you could have sediment buildup in your hot water tank. This can make your heater less efficient and lead to cracks, holes, and leaks.

Fortunately, it’s an easy fix when you call Mallick Plumbing & Heating, Inc.

Sign #3: Rust-Colored Water

Brown water in your shower? It’s not a horror movie; it’s time for a repair! Over time, rust can build up, and you may need to drain and flush – or replace – your tank.

Our skilled plumbers can help. Call us at (301) 804-6759 or contact us online to get started today.
