According to the manufacturers, the average life expectancy of a tank type water heater is 10 to 14 years.  Over the years of heating, a buildup of hard calcium will develop on the bottom of the tank and cause this rumbling popping noise, unfortunately flushing and draining the water heater, will not remove the buildup, usually it’s time for a new Water Heater.

This is a common problem that is usually associated with a hot water copper re-piping. When hot water lines are strapped to a hard surface, the expansion of the water line as it heats up and the contraction as it cools down, will sometimes sound like water dripping.
