Routine Water Heater Services

To keep your water heater performing as expected, it’s important to have your unit tuned-up by a professional on a regular basis. During this routine maintenance, you can expect a plumber to:

  • Empty the basin and remove any buildup of sediment. If not empty, this can cause a broad range of issues with your system.
  • Inspect both the inside and outside of the unit for hairline cracks or signs of aging. If not identified early, these can cause larger problems later.
  • Check for any cracks in the hoses.
  • Examine the filters and change, if needed.
  • Make sure the unit is operating properly.

How Long Do Water Heaters last?

Like all appliances in your home, eventually, your water heater will need to be replaced. Fortunately, these units do have a long life expectancy. While every make and model is different, most electric units will last between 10 to 20 years. This can vary based on the level of usage and the amount of maintenance the unit receives. Gas-powered units can have a shorter lifespan than electric systems.

Why is My Water Heater Leaking?

A leaking water heater can be a cause for concern and may require immediate attention. There are several reasons why your water heater might be leaking, and it's important to understand the potential causes to address the issue effectively. 

Here are some common reasons why your water heater may be leaking:

  • Pressure relief valve: The pressure relief valve is a safety feature that releases excess pressure from the tank. If it's faulty or has excessive pressure buildup, it can cause leaks.
  • Loose or damaged connections: Over time, the connections to your water heater can become loose or damaged, leading to leaks. This can occur at the inlet and outlet pipes, as well as the drain valve.
  • Corrosion: Corrosion is a common problem in water heaters, especially in older units. The corrosion can weaken the tank and cause leaks.
  • Sediment buildup: Sediment can accumulate at the bottom of the tank, leading to overheating and pressure issues. This can cause the tank to leak.
  • Temperature and pressure relief (TPR) valve failure: The TPR valve is designed to release pressure if it exceeds safe levels. If it malfunctions, it can result in leaks.

If you notice a leak in your water heater, it's crucial to take action promptly. Ignoring the issue can lead to more significant problems, including water damage and potential safety hazards. Contact a professional water heater technician, like Garon T Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning, to diagnose and resolve the leak promptly. They have the expertise to identify the cause of the leak and provide the necessary repairs or replacements to restore your water heater's functionality and prevent further leaks. Don't hesitate to address the issue to ensure the longevity and efficiency of your water heater system.
