Water Heater Rumbling? Here’s What To Do


You turn on your sink faucet or hop in the shower to wash your hair and there it is… the distant sound of rumbling. Of course, you notice this sound, but it’s something that you’d rather ignore for now. It doesn’t seem to be affecting your home comfort and you know that finding the source of the issue will only mean trouble… we want you to address your water heater issues with our help.

If you need proper water heater repair in New Haven, CT, then we’re prepared to provide it for you. Water heater rumbling is a clear sign of a water heater issue. It doesn’t have to be the downfall of your home’s water heater, though. We can turn things around quickly.  

What’s With the Rumbling?

Water heater rumbling is just as disruptive as it is disconcerting. The reason why your water heater is rumbling is due to sediment build-up.

We face our fair share of hard water here in New Haven. Although you’ve likely heard of the term, you might not know what it means on a technical level. Hard water is water that’s full of minerals. The minerals are typically full of calcium and magnesium. These minerals are completely harmless when it comes to the human body, but they’re not so harmless when it comes to your plumbing.

These minerals tend to settle and create build-up over time. This happens in your home’s pipes and in your water heater. It settles at the bottom of the tank inside of your water heater. After use of use and repeated cycles of heating up and cooling off, the minerals will become calcified and a hardened layer that’s difficult for your water to bypass. This is when the rumbling happens.

The “Why” Behind Your Rumble

Rumbling is the sound of your water struggling to push past debris. The simple solution is to flush your home’s hot water tank. Our technicians are able to perform this service with ease. You can trust our team members for the work you need.

What to Do

The bottom line is that you need to schedule an appointment with our team members.

Other Options

If the situation warrants a higher level of service, then we can provide this too. Sometimes, water heaters that haven’t been attended to in years need repair rather than maintenance. If you’re having persistent issues and your water heater is on the older side, then you might need replacement.
