What could be causing corrosion in my Noritz water heater and how can it be fixed?


James Thompson, Water Heater Repair Expert

Corrosion in your Noritz water heater could be due to several factors such as the quality of water, age of the heater, or lack of regular maintenance. Hard water, which contains high levels of minerals, can cause sediment build-up leading to corrosion. Similarly, as the heater ages, the protective lining may wear off, exposing the tank to water, resulting in rust and corrosion.

To fix this issue, regular flushing and cleaning of the tank can help remove sediment build-up. If the corrosion is severe, it might be necessary to replace the corroded parts or even the entire unit. It’s always best to consult with a professional to determine the most suitable solution.

Our specialists at 5 Star Best Plumbing are well-versed in water heater repair and can help you with any appliance-related issues. Don’t hesitate to reach out for assistance.
