Common Signs of Water Tank Issues

Spotting trouble with your water tank early can save you a headache; keep an eye out for any unusual changes in your water system. If you notice anything off-kilter, it’s likely time to call in the professionals at JB1 Plumber.

Decreased water pressure

Low water pressure might well indicate your tank demands attention. Accumulated sediment at the tank’s base often restricts water flow, affecting both pressure and efficiency. This could cause pumps to overexert, potentially reducing their working life and upping energy consumption.

Addressing this problem requires sediment removal. Our plumbing experts utilise state-of-the-art procedures to regain peak tank performance. By using anti-corrosion tools and methods like cathodic protection systems, not only are tanks freed from obstructions but they’re also shielded against future sediment buildup.

Routine upkeep will avert pressure issues in the future, ensuring showers remain powerful and taps continue to deliver an uninterrupted flow.

Leaks and flooding

Water tank leaks might seem insignificant at first, but they’re often harbingers of larger troubles looming. If overlooked, a mere drip can magnify into a relentless flow, putting your property in danger of flooding.

Such calamities disrupt daily life and bring about expensive repairs, along with the potential for water damage to your house or business location.

Our team confronts these challenges directly by pinpointing areas where corrosion resistance has diminished. We conduct thorough inspections for any indications that polyethylene linings or fibreglass reinforced plastic may have weakened—these are frequent factors in water tank degradation.

Prompt action paired with skilled repair work ensures we halt leaks before they escalate out of hand, protecting your premises from the hazards of sudden flooding. By engaging our services, you ensure your water storage remains secure without the anxiety of unexpected surges causing havoc on your day—or damaging your property.

Discolored or foul-smelling water

If your taps spew out off-coloured water or a foul odour presents itself each time you turn them on, this could signal corrosion or sediment build-up within your water tank.

Metals like iron may rust as time passes, shedding particles that alter your water’s hue and flavour. Additionally, the presence of bacteria can lead to nasty smells, signalling that it’s high time for a cleanout or repair.

Regular maintenance is crucial to preventing these problems from impacting your household’s water supply. Opting for corrosion-resistant materials such as stainless steel, zinc alloy, or fibreglass-reinforced plastic for tanks promotes durability and purer water.

It may be worthwhile to consider upgrading old systems to glass-reinforced plastics, which resist oxidation and will not add to discolouration or unpleasant odours in your water.

Strange noises coming from the tank

Unusual sounds coming from your water tank can be confusing and cause for concern. These noises often suggest that something is amiss with the system. Gurgling, banging or popping noises might indicate trapped air or parts becoming loose due to rusting or general wear and tear.

Accumulation of sediment at the bottom could also result in odd sounds as it disrupts the water heater’s normal operation.

It’s important to clean your water tank regularly to avoid these unsettling noises. Neglecting sediment can not only create noise but may also damage protective coatings and lead to corrosion of metal components over time.

A properly maintained tank should be devoid of debris and corrosion, ensuring it runs quietly and efficiently. Should you notice any unusual sounds, promptly arranging an inspection can prevent a minor issue from escalating into a bigger problem.
