When to Consider Hot Water Tank Replacement
The average lifespan of a water heater is about 12 years, and with a good maintenance routine, you may be able to stretch it to 15. However, like all appliances, your water heater will eventually fail. Here are a few signs that signal trouble for your water heater and that you must call a plumber for help.
- Popping or Rumbling Sounds: If you hear pops or rumbles coming from your water tank, it could mean that there is sediment buildup and the tank needs to be flushed or replaced.
- Rust: Rust on the outside of the tank means that it's rusting from the inside and will leak soon.
- No Hot Water: Does the water coming out of the water heater not feel as hot as it used to? It could signal that the heating element is failing.
- Rusty or Cloudy Water: Another sign of a water heater that’s in trouble is rust-colored or murky water coming out of the spigot. While it could point to rust in the plumbing, it could also indicate the tank is rusting from the inside.
If you notice any of the above signs or anything else unusual about your water heater, call the experts at Canyon Plumbing & Heating for an inspection.
