Common Water Heater Problems
If you notice your water heater is leaking, switch off your home’s water valve. It’s normally situated in your basement, near furnace or water heater, or underneath your kitchen sink.
Then call Boehmers/Cronin Emery Service Experts at 519-804-1617 without delay. Even a small leak can cause significant damage to your home.
A leaky tank may be hinting you need to replace your water heater.

Other Water Heater Problems
These signs can be an indication that your water heater is going out:
- Rumbling noises coming from the tank
- Tinted, milky-colored or rusty water
- Foul-smelling water
- Leaking pressure relief valve
Because water heaters generally hold 50 gallons of water, failure can result in a catastrophic flood.
