  1. Unfiltered and Hard Water systems can build up deposits: The deposits create a layer of sediment on the bottom of the heater. This puts a huge overload on the heater’s performance and shortens its life span. To slow this process down you could install a two filter house system and/or a softening system to keep the water moving through the system and not staying.
  2. Hot water output is low: Adjust the thermostat setting up a few degrees at a time, to check the amount of flow. If that doesn’t work  then test thermostats or heating elements. (Use a professional to check into this step)
  3. Water is way too hot: Check the thermostat settings and adjust the temperature down to a more normal working number. If test is inconclusive call a professional plumber
  4. Leaking heater from ports: Make sure to turn off and drain out heater before attempting to change gaskets and replace leaking parts. Re-connect water lines and test.
  5. Rusty water comes out: Replace the water heater because the heater is eroding from the inside out.
  6. Dirty water: Drain the heater and flush until water comes through clean. By doing this on a regular basis extends the life of your electric water heater.
