At JandC Plumbing and Sewer Service, Inc. we provide our customers with regular inspections that can make a huge difference in the life and maintenance of your water heater.
The first step to hot water heater maintenance is being able to recognize signs that may indicate your water heater needs to repaired.
Your water heater is cracked
Because of the temperature changes in the water, small cracks can occur in the tank which may cause leaks in and around the water heater. In addition, older tanks build up sediment and can get very noisy. This is a clear sign that a new tank will be needed soon. These units give clear signs of aging and a professional can help you stay on top of its condition.
Your water is producing discolored water
If your water becomes rusty, it is a sign that your pipes or tank are aging and in need of repair. You can remove a few buckets of water to see if the rust leaves. If it does, then the problem is most likely in your pipes. If not, you need to have your unit checked.
Your water heater is old
It is important to understand that the age of a unit matters. Most function well for up to 10 years. After this time, you will need to consider getting it replaced. Leaks can cause water damage which can lead to mold and mildew and a host of problems. Replacement before problems set in is the most efficient way to keep problems to a minimum.
