Water Heater Makes Popping and Banging Sounds?

If your water heater is making popping and banging sounds when it comes on chances are it has sediment buildup in the bottom of it.  This sediment buildup can effect efficiency along with tank capacity.  If the burner in the bottom has to heat through all the sediment to start heating the water then it is not doing a very good job and costing you money.  The more sediment that builds up in your water heater the less hot water it can hold, if you hear the popping and banging, notice you run out of hot water a lot sooner than you used to give us a call, as part of our plumbing inspection we inspect and check all safety controls in your water heater, flush it out and check to make sure the water heater burner and elements are heating properly and help get you a longer life out of your heater.

What can be done if the hot water smells bad?

If you have a Boise water heater that makes hot water that smells like sulfur it is usually a pretty simple fix.   This doe not necessarily mean that you need a new water heater.  It is a matter of having one of our plumbers disinfect the water heater and depending on the water we might need to change the anode rod to a different type.  Most water heaters come with a magnesium anode rod, when you have sulfur smelling water changing the anode rod out to an aluminum anode rod and disinfecting the water heater with bleach can cure the smell for good.  Water heater smell can be caused by a reaction of the heated water, the minerals in the water,  and the metals inside the water heater in Nampa.  If you are experiencing this and would like your Caldwell water heater to quit smelling bad just give us a shout and one of our trained and licensed plumbers will come out and get it figured out for you.
