How’s your water heater doing? We don’t normally think about our water heater to much until we have a cold shower or a leak. Don’t wait for a catastrophe! Be alert for these indicators that your water heater is about to fail.
- How old is your water heater? It’s crucial to know the age of your water heater. Find the age by looking for the serial number on the manufacturer’s sticker on the upper portion of the water heater. It won’t look like a traditional date. Each manufacturer uses a date code — check their website to learn more. Rule of thumb, Generally, if your water heater is more than 10 years old it should be considered for replacement.
- Rusty water. If you discover rusty water coming from your water heater and it only comes from the hot side piping in your home, this can be a sign that your water heater is rusting away on the inside and it may begin to leak soon.
- Rumbling and noise. As a water heater ages, sediment will build up on the bottom of the tank. As the sediment is heated and reheated, it eventually will harden. When this happens, you can often hear rumbling or banging sounds coming from the water heater as it is heating up. This is a sign that the water heater is at the end of its useful life.
- Water around the water heater. If you notice moisture around your water, you may have a small leak or a fracture in the tank.
