This indicates the water heater has had little to no maintenance over the years. The other possibility is the water heater is too small, wrong size or too old needing replaced.
If there is constant clogging or blockage, drains move slowly to clear. Common issues are freezing pipelines, sewer drain line damage, or tree and shrub root intrusion.
Seeing unusual mold growth, dark patches, structural weakness along the floor or walls indicates water damage. A plumber needs to inspect and assess the damage.
The sound of knocking on the walls comes from loose pipe fasteners or irregular pressure changes. That does require repairs from our fully licensed plumber.
Seeing different colored water such as brown, yellow, or flecked with sediment is a pipe or water heater issue. The heater tank is corroded or not well maintained.
Some homes still have pipes that are 50 years old or older. If the lines are lead, galvanized steel, or contained vermiculite, that material is a health risk needing replaced.
