When is replacement necessary?

Once water heaters reach 10-15 years, they start to show signs of breaking down. It is often more cost effective to replace your unit than to continue with costly repairs.

Signs you need to install a new water heater:

  • Leaking tank
  • Rust or sediment in the water
  • Failure to provide the desired water temperature

Why is the tank leaking?

Water heater leaks are often associated with the hot water outlet and the cold water inlet. A loose connection in this area can lead to leaks.

The pressure relief valve is also another component that can cause problems. Your water heater is designed to release pressure if the water becomes too hot and builds too much pressure.

Internal leaks also create problems. The bottom of the tank can leak with age and deterioration.

How can you avoid problems in the future?

Regular maintenance is the most effective way to prevent unexpected emergencies. We suggest flushing the water heater tank at least once a year. Sediment can build up in the bottom of the tank, speeding up corrosion and deterioration. Regular tank flushing keeps the tank clean and sediment buildup to a minimum.

It is suggested that you flush your water heater approximately once per year. Sediment can build up in the bottom of the tank and cause issues for the heater. Flushing the heater yearly helps keep the tank clean and sediment build up to a minimum.

During routine maintenance we will also test the temperature and pressure relief valve. The valve should make a gurgling sound as it releases water; if it does not respond after lifting the lever, it needs to be replaced.

We will look out for these issues and more during preventive maintenance checks. Our goal is to help you get the hot water you need, every day, without interruption.
