If you’re not sure if you’re due for a hot water tank replacement, here are some signs:
Scant hot water or hot water that turns cold quickly. If you aren’t getting hot water at all or not enough, you could need an upgrade, a repair, or a replacement.
Banging or loud noises from the heater. During the failure process, a hot water heater commonly starts making unusual noises, including rattling, clattering, rumbling, or banging.
Leaking water. Drips and small puddles of water near or under your hot water tank can occur when small fractures form because of pressure. They will worsen over time, causing more and larger leaks.
Visible rust near to or on the tank. Rust is a sign that not only is your hot water heat aging, but it’s weakening as well, which can lead to leaks or a flood in the future.
These signs often show that your hot water heater is preparing to fail, so getting a solid evaluation from a plumbing professional allows you to avoid other issues down the road.
