Water Heater Failure Warning Signs


If you’re suddenly noticing a spike in your utility bills or your water heater is beginning to struggle to get the job done, it may be a sign that repairs or replacement might be needed. Check your hot water tank on a regular basis to ensure it’s not leaking or rusting, look for any pooling water around the tank, or corrosion on the unit itself.

Poor water quality from your tap that includes rust-colored or strange smelling water could also be a sign that something is wrong with your hot water tank. If you notice your hot water tank is making strange noises, it could indicate a scale buildup on your unit’s heating elements.

Common Water Heater Problems

A Leaking Tank

If you find that your hot water tank is leaking, be sure to switch off your home’s water immediately. You can normally locate the valve in your basement, or sometimes under the kitchen sink. In most cases, a leaking tank means you’ll need to replace the hot water tank as repairing a cracked tank can be just as costly and not as effective as a full replacement.
