This morning I heard noises in the basement that sounded like somone
russeling around! Armed with my trusty maglight flashlight I ventured
to take a look. Instead it seemed the noises were coming from the hot
water heater. Now, this is an older heater, but it still does it's job
of heating water well.
The sounds basically sounded like water boiling, and a whisteling noise
(which I thought might have been just flew gases, until I turned the
temperature down and the flame turned off and I still heard it). So..
does it sound like the water was boiling? (I had the nob just a little
higher then 'the normal notch') Or is there a leak? I did not see any
water coming out anywhere, but wondered if a small leak could be sucking
in air and making these noises? It was definately an AIR/water noise,
but is it anything I should be concerned about?
