But how do you know if it’s time to undertake a hot water replacement? Here are some signs:
Lack of hot water (or hot water turns cold quickly). When your hot water tank can’t generate enough hot water, you may need a replacement or even an upgrade to a larger unit.
Loud, rattling noises coming from heater. If your hot water heater is making banging, clattering, rumbling, or clanging noises, it could be on its last legs.
Water leaks. If your water tank is leaving spots or drips around it, the pressure in your tank may be causing fractures that will worsen over time, leading to more leakage problems.
Visible rust on or around the tank unit. Rust is a sign of age, and as your tank corrodes, it’s less likely to effectively bear the pressure from your plumbing system, and should be replaced before leaks form.
If you’ve noticed these or other signs, it’s important to have your hot water tank evaluated soon so that it doesn’t lead to other problems. A full inspection can be the difference between an inexpensive repair and a costly replacement.
