Water heaters may make a wide variety of noises, sometimes indicating a problem, and sometimes nothing to worry about at all. On the other hand, identifying the noises being made can give you early warning of components that need maintenance or replacement.
You turn on the hot water faucet, wait for the water to heat up, and after almost a minute, it’s still running cold. Maybe you stepped into a nice, hot shower, but the water gets cold within just a few minutes and ruins your nice relaxing shower.
