Water Heater Hissing And Leaking
Does the water heater make you laugh?
I have a 10 year old 50 gallon natural gas water heater. The plumber rinsed it off to remove any residue. Whistle when cold water supply is open. He is not going anywhere. Noise can also be heard in the upstairs hall bathroom behind the spirits wall. There is no hosing from other taps / switches in use.
We cut off the water supply and checked that the hydrometer did not work, the plumber said there was no leakage from the cold plate.
In my opinion PSI is 90. Any idea what is the cause of this problem?update
Thanks for the Chef Grill info. However, the hustle was permanent. It works 24 hours a day. I know the tank makes a sound when the water gets hot, but the sound is like air escaping from the top of the tank.
Also, there is no sound from the bathroom wall / gutter when the tank is being emptied. Her voice could be heard across the bathroom. The bathroom measures 8x6. The sound never stopped, it felt like water was flowing from the walls. The faucet or stems may need to be replaced, but the faucet is not flowing.
Thanks everyone for the answers, the problem was diagnosed, it was a water pipe. The plumber turned off the water, all the noise stopped after 34 minutes.
The line will be repaired next week.
When cleaning the sediment, there is a slight leak. This does not mean that it does not leak. 10 years of water heater life is approaching and you should consider replacing it. You do not want to be frustrated if you cannot get the right pitch so invest in a good capo. In addition, the new water heater is much more efficient than the old water heater and pays off in terms of energy savings.
