Noisy Water Heater
Noise coming from gas models can often be caused by the sediment build up in the bottom of the tank. The heating of water causes calcium carbonate to precipitate out and settle to the bottom of the tank. Steam bubbles form under the sediment when the burners come on causing popping and other noises as the bubbles escape from under the sediment. Sediment buildup depends upon what kind of water you have. In some areas there is virtually no sediment and in other areas sediment buildup can be significant. Regular flushing of your hot water heater helps prevent sediment build up.
Not Enough Hot Water
Check for a broken dip tube, wrong setting on a thermostat, a defective thermostat, burned out heating elements (electric), or a heavy build up of sediment.
Put a dozen or so drops of green food coloring in your tank to test for silent leaks. If the dye appears in the bowl you may need to change the ball or flapper, if no dye appears within a 15 minuet period your toilet is leak free.
