Signs You Need To Replace Your Water Heater

Does the water come out cold? How old is your water heater? Hot water is something that is taken for granted until it is unavailable. Hot water is essential in the home. We use hot water throughout the day for everything from showers and baths to cooking and laundry.

We use our plumbing at least 20 times every day, and that number multiplies by the hundreds when several family members are included. This emphasizes the importance of a functional water heater. Remember that water heaters have a lifespan and that nothing lasts forever. Traditional water heaters have a lifespan of approximately 10 to 15 years, but tankless versions can last up to 20 years. Here are the leading indicators that it may be time to replace your water heater:

  1. Rustic or murky water:

If the water coming out of your faucets is rusty/muddy or sandy, sediment may have accumulated in your water heater tank. It can be remedied by draining the contents of the tank. Rust in the water is one of the clearest indications that a replacement water heater is required. When the tank walls are exposed to water and heat for numerous years, rust and corrosion occur. Therefore, rusty water flowing out of the faucet can be an indication that your water heater is aging.

  1. Leaking Water Heater:

If your water heater has reached the end of its expected lifespan, there is a potential that water will begin to pool around the tank. It indicates that the water heater is leaking. Leaks are typically caused by an increase in pressure within the tank. It indicates that the unit’s relief valve is malfunctioning. Depending on the position of the water heater in your home, a water leak might cause extensive property damage.

  1. Noise:

Small noises from your water heater are typical and should not be audible. Call Plumbing Point Inc. if your water heater is making loud rumbling, slamming, or knocking noises; it may be time for a replacement. Rust and other sediments accumulate at the bottom of the tank as a water heater ages. When silt is heated, it becomes rigid and begins to produce a rumbling sound.

  1. Lack of hot water:

Experiencing an unexpected spray of chilly water during a warm shower. What a horrible sensation! It’s possible that your water heater’s heating element has burned out. If your home lacks hot water, it’s time to call Plumbing Point Inc. We can help determine whether a simple repair or replacement is required.

If any of the aforementioned symptoms are present, the first step is to book a Water Heater inspection with Plumbing Point Inc. This can help you determine if your water heater has more life or if replacement is the most cost-effective option.
