    Cool Water Heater making noises


    I have a six year old gas water heater that just started making popping sound every time I use hot water. Is it getting ready to explode?

    Mine does too. POP! gurgle, gurgle.... POP! I figured it was just air or something............ I HATE working on plumbing and my kitchen faucet is taking a CR _ P on me.

    In this economy I just remind myself I have a roof over my head and for that I am thankful.

    this is usually the result of a buildup of sediment on the bottom of the tank,leave the cold water supply on and run a hose from the drain on the bottom of the tank untill it runs clear,if u need to do this by bucket.dont get lazy draw at least 10-15 gals out..just fyi you may want to purchse a brass hose cap incase the tank drain doesnt shut off 100% when your done,
