My Water Heater Has Started To Sound Like Water That Is Boiling On The Stove. Should I Be Concerned?
there is a valve at bottom of the heater. hook a garden hose up to it and run the hose to the floor drain. open that valve up and flush out the heater for 20 minutes. be sure to turn the temp. down because the water heater will stay lit all the time your flushing.
the reason it sounds like that is due to lime build up in the bottom of the tank. if when u open the valve and no water comes out that means it it is limed up too much and you’ll need to replace the heater.
you can take the hose off and jab a metal hanger in there to losen the lime to get it drained.
