COMMON WATER HEATER ISSUES
Between the heat, corrosion, sediment, and mineral deposits that water heaters are exposed to, it’s only a matter of time before they break down or fail completely. Some of the most common water heater problems our team encounters include:
No hot water: In gas models, the pilot light or igniter may have failed, preventing the burners from lighting. In electric models, both heating elements may have failed, or a breaker may have tripped.
Insufficient hot water: In gas water heaters, a lack of hot water may be due to sediment accumulation or incorrect thermostat settings. In electric water heaters, one of the heating elements may have failed.
Sediment: In storage tank water heaters, sediment can accumulate at the bottom of the tank and reduce your hot water capacity while encouraging corrosion.
Corrosion: Corrosion can cause a storage tank water heater to leak and fail. In tankless water heaters, it can attack the heat exchanger.
Mineral deposits: Calcium, lime, and magnesium deposits can clog the heat exchanger on tankless water heaters or contribute to sediment problems in storage tank models.

TANK VS. TANKLESS WATER HEATERS
The type of water heater you have in your home can have a significant effect on your comfort and energy costs. While a conventional storage tank water heater does a great job of providing a nearly instant supply of hot water, sustained use can cause supply to run out. On the other hand, a tankless water heater provides virtually unlimited hot water and must be properly installed and maintained to achieve the best results.
For all of your water heater questions or concerns, speak with our experts at Pipeline Plumbing & Drain Specialists. We regularly install and service storage tank and tankless water heaters, including gas and electric versions and would be happy to evaluate your needs and recommend the best solution for your home and budget.
Benefits of Storage Tank Water Heaters
Conventional water heaters include a storage tank that keeps a supply of water hot and ready at all times. Though this requires significant energy, it provides near-instant access to hot water, with enough capacity for a typical family when sized properly. Available in both gas and electric models, storage tank water heaters have several benefits:
- Tested, proven technology
- Simple maintenance procedures
- No need for gas or electrical upgrades
- Less susceptible to failures from mineral accumulations
Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters can provide nearly unlimited hot water when configured correctly. Thanks to its superior energy efficiency, the tankless system is able to save residents hundreds of dollars over time and offers a significantly longer average lifespan. The benefits of tankless water heaters include:
- Reduced energy consumption and utility costs
- Smaller size for flexible installation in more locations
- No tank to leak or cause flooding
- Up to twice the lifespan of conventional water heaters
