There are a few reasons why your heater may be damaged by sediment buildup. Often, it’s because your water supply contains sediment.

If this sediment isn’t removed upstream of the hot water heater, it’ll end up clogging the heating tank and elements.

In this story, we’ve shared some of the most likely symptoms of sediment in your hot water heater. We’ve also shared our tips on what to do about sediment buildup in a water heater.

PROBLEMS HEATING WATER

If your water will only heat to a certain temperature, even when you’ve turned the heat up to the max on your fixtures, sediment could be to blame.

REDUCED WATER FLOW AND PRESSURE

If you’ve noticed that the water flow from your faucets and shower heads is never plentiful, even when the fixture is switched on full, you might have a sediment issue.

UNUSUAL SOUNDS FROM YOUR HEATER

If you’ve noticed hissing, banging, or rumbling noises from your hot water tank, sediment may be responsible.

When sediment accumulates in the heater tank and the heating element starts, it may create unusual hissing or sizzling sounds as the debris at the tank's bottom burns.

These noises may also be caused by air pockets beneath the layer of sediment, which pop and crackle when the water begins to heat.
