Count on The Plumber for an honest assessment of your hot water tank and a detailed explanation of your available options.
But is it time to undertake a hot water replacement? Here are a few signs:
Lack of hot water (or hot water gets cold quickly). When your hot water tank doesn’t generate enough hot water, a replacement or an upgrade to a larger unit may be needed
Clanging, rattling noises coming from heater. If your hot water heater is banging, clattering, rumbling, or making loud noises, it could be on its last legs.
Water leaks. Are there spots or drips around your water heater? The pressure in your tank could be causing tiny fractures that will worsen over time, leading to more leaks.
Visible rust on or near the tank. Rust is a sign your tank is aging, and corrosion means it’s less likely to bear the pressure from your plumbing. It should be replaced before leaks start.
These or other signs can be concerning, so it’s important that you have your hot water tank looked at sooner instead of later, so that you can avoid other issues. A full inspection can make the difference between inexpensive repairs and costly replacements. Ready to have an experienced technician check your Depew water heater and help you with the process?
