Most water heater problems come from a lack of proper maintenance. This is because people don't think about their water heaters nearly often enough. Even though these machines don't have many moving parts, the ones that are there need to be taken care of or they will fail. Not all problems can be avoided but they can be identified before something catastrophic happens. A stuck thermostat can cause your heating element or gas control valve to be stuck in an open position. This is both a huge waste of energy and makes you much more likely to scald yourself on hot tap water. In addition, a stuck thermostat in combination with a faulty temperature and pressure release valve can cause the water heater to explode! The best fix for a malfunctioning thermostat is a simple replacement that usually costs under $50.
Poorly maintained water heaters also show several issues with the sacrificial anode system. This is the system that prevents the interior of the water heater from rusting. A sacrificial rod is placed in the center of the tank to collect all of the rust causing elements in the water. These combine with the material in the anode instead of the steel tank. This causes the anode to wear down and drop a solid precipitate into the tank. This sediment builds up at the bottom of the tank and can cause everything from poor water heating efficiency to a sulfur smell coming from the tap. The best way to prevent this is to have your water heater flushed at least once a year.
