3 Symptoms of Water Heater Issues

Water heaters occasionally develop problems, just like any other system. Also just like any other system, the best way to handle water heater issues is to identify them as quickly as possible. The faster you can identify water heater issues, and have them repaired, the better off your system will be. Read on for some of the more common symptoms that your water heater is in trouble.


Hydronic systems will always have to contend with leaks, most of which occur simply from years of use and exposure. Though individual leaks may be small, they should not be ignored. Even a small leak can cause quite a bit of damage, if in the right location and given enough time to develop. Make sure that you call for repairs as soon as you notice a leak in the water heater system.

Dropping Output

Any water heater will eventually have its supply of hot water exhausted if put under enough demand for a long enough period of time. However, consistently low output often indicates a problem rather than overuse. This could be because of a broken dip tube, a clogged burner assembly, or any one of half a dozen other issues. Regardless, it’s a good idea to have a professional check your system.

Failure to Start

Failure to start is pretty obviously an indication that the system is experiencing problems of some kind. It’s possible that the pilot light simply blew out, of course. Then again, it could be a more serious issue. If you can’t seem to get your water heater started at all, it’s a good idea to call for repairs.
