Common Water Heater Problems
Hot water is a necessity of life in the modern American household. When something happens to your water heater, it can disrupt your daily routine, throw your day off course, and, in some cases, cause you serious financial agitation. When you bring in Blue Sky plumbers for hot water heater repairs, you will receive the plumbing advice of experienced technicians, affordable and efficient water heater repairs and maintenance, and courteous customer service every step of the way.
Here are a few common problems you may experience with your water heater and the repairs we can perform. Blue Sky is ready to help solve your problems today!
Cold or Lukewarm Water
If your water is not hot enough, there could be an issue with the pilot, gas control valve, or thermocouple. Our plumbers can investigate the problem and repair or replace the damaged or inefficient parts to turn up the heat.
Discolored and Smelly Water
Maybe your water is hot, but looks rusty and smells like rotten eggs. You may have severe corrosion or a build-up of bacteria in the tank or pipes. This needs to be addressed immediately for your health and the health of your family.
Strange or Loud Noises
Banging or popping sounds are frequently caused by water boiling in the storage tank. Excessive sediment build-up on the bottom of your tank can cause the water to overheat. We will flush the water heater and remove the sediment.
Insufficient Hot Water Supply
Does your shower start off hot and quickly turn frigid? If so, something could be wrong with the heating elements, temperature settings, or dip tube, or sediment could be collecting in the tank. We will take a look in the tank and fix the issue.
Water leaks are always problematic, but many can be repaired. If it’s a relief valve or a loose or broken plumbing connection, we can repair it immediately. However, if the storage tank is leaking, we may not be able to repair it, but we can speak to you about affordable replacements, including electric tankless water heaters.
If you experience any of these issues and require emergency plumbing repairs for your water heater, feel free to contact us over the phone or via an online contact form.

What can I put down my garbage disposal?
As long as you use enough water, you can put almost any non-fibrous food down your garbage disposal. This includes bones up to ½” in diameter, coffee grounds, eggs and egg shells, orange rinds, apples, and potato peelings. Most problems occur when you don’t use enough water and don’t allow the water to run for at least 10 seconds after the food disappears.
How do I know if my toilet is leaking?
Toilet leaks are more common than you might think. This can make your water bill sky-high and leave you wondering what is going on. Here are a few signs that your toilet is leaking:
- You frequently have to jiggle the handle to make the toilet stop running.
- You have to hold down the handle when to flush to get the tank to empty.
- Water runs over the top of the overflow pipe.
- You hear sounds of water running in the toilet when it is not being used.
- Water runs down the sides of the toilet bowl long after the toilet was last used.
- You hear the toilet tank refilling even though it hasn’t been emptied recently.
What is the best kind of pipe for my home?
Most of the time, we suggest plastic or PEX/PVC piping for your home. This material lasts for a long time because it doesn’t rust and is less likely to crack or break than some other types of pipe. Unless you are in a very specific situation, which our plumbers will discover, we highly recommend this type of piping for your home.
What is hydro jetting?
Hydro jetting offers a way to clean your drains without digging up your yard or pulling your home apart to access clogged pipes. Instead, we use a tool that sprays highly-pressurized water into your pipes. We control the pressure of the water and where it sprays, so we can remove your clog and clean your entire pipe. A hydrojetting tool has one nozzle that sprays forward and 6-8 that sprays backward. On the first pass, the reverse-facing jets propel the nozzle forward while the front one breaks up clogs. When we pull the nozzle back through the pipe, the reverse jets scour the edges of the pipe until they look like new. If your plumber thinks that hydrojetting is a good option for you, we’ll let you know and get the job done fast.
Does Blue Sky Offer Commercial Plumbing Services?

What kind of water heater should I get?
Most of the time, the type of water heater you get will be determined by the type of connections you already have. Unless you are highly motivated to change the type of water heater that you have, the best choice is usually to get the same kind that was installed before. If you are in a place to change the type of water heater that you have, gas is often the better option. It is cheaper and can heat larger quantities of water faster. However, gas water heaters are usually larger than electric ones and you cannot store flammable liquids nearby.
What kind of sink should I get?
When it comes to getting a new sink, you have many options. These include:
- Cast iron
- Stainless steel
- Enameled steel
- And more!
When our experts help you install a sink, we’ll ask you what you plan to do with it. Will you wash dishes in it regularly? Is it likely you will drop dishes or silverware in it? Then, we’ll ask you about your preferences. Do you want a large sink or a small one? Do you want a sink that sits on top of the counter or below the counter level? Once we know the answers to these questions, we’ll work with you to find the perfect kind of sink for your home. In general, cast iron and stainless steel are more durable than some other types of sinks, but they may require special care.
Why is my drain clogged? I’m so careful!
We believe you when you tell us that you are so careful about putting grease down your drains. Unfortunately, most people end up putting it down accidentally no matter how hard they try to do the opposite. When you rinse plates, bowls, pots, and pans in your sink, they often have a thin layer of grease on them. This gets rinsed down the drain with the rest of the debris from your plate. When this grease contacts a cold pipe downstream from the kitchen sink, it solidifies and attaches to the pipe wall. Over the years, even the smallest amounts of grease can build up and cause clogs. Don’t worry, though! Your Blue Sky plumber will get that clog out fast!
