Hot water tank makes weird bubbling-like noises.

Hey, hopefully you guys will excuse my bad knowledge on this topic, and hopefully this question won't make me sound retarded...Our hot water tank makes weird noises, i'm not sure if this is normal or not. I am planning on flushing it tomorrow. Someone said it was something about the hard water in the bottom, but I don't see how that can make it produce odd noises.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Debris in a heater will definitely cause noise... It can be rust from inside the tank or it can be caused by hard water deposits... The solution is the same for either -- just flush the heater out properly...
