Signs Your Water Heater is About to Fail
Like most major home appliances, water heaters break down after some time. Knowing some of the signs that your unit is about to fail can prevent you from running into big problems. Here are a few indicators that your water heater might need to be replaced.
Muddy or Rusty Water
If you notice rusty water coming from your water heater, this can be a sign that the water tank is starting to corrode on the inside. A deteriorating water tank will usually develop rust around the water supply lines, tank seams, temperature and pressure relief valve, or the drain valve. Muddy or sandy water could be a sign that there’s a buildup of sediment in your tank.
Most water heaters have an expected useful life of ten years. If you’ve been using the same water heater for longer and you’re not sure when it was last replaced, it may be nearing its final days.
As your water heater ages, it will accumulate sediments in the tank. Constant reheating will cause the sediments to harden, and consequently result in rumbling sounds. The deposits can also cause your water heater to develop cracks and holes as well as decreased efficiency. If your water heater is making banging or rumbling sounds, it’s likely you’ll need to replace it soon.
Moisture around your heater often points to a leak. Inspect your tank and check for water pooling under or around it. A leak is almost always a sign that you need to repair or replace your tank before the problem worsens.
