Noisy Water Heater
Posted by M Keninitz on January 02, 1999 at 08:38:06:
I have a gas water heater that's about 9 years old. The anoid was replaced about 4 month ago to
eliminate a 'raw egg' odor. But I continue to have have a severe rumbling every time a faucet, toilet,
dishwasher or washing machine is used. It's just when something is first turned on. I've tried
draining the heater several times over the past several months (and I seem to get lots of sediment out).
The rumbling lessens but never goes away completely, and returns in intensity within a month. Do I
need a new water heater? Am I going to wake up one day with a flooded basement and/or no
hot water? Thanks for any feedback.
