One of the most unpleasant things to happen in your home is hopping into the shower and having nothing but cold water come out. Like many appliances, water heaters deteriorate over time. Years of usage and constant wear and tear will eventually take its toll even if you schedule regular maintenance. Since no one wants to deal with a lack of hot water, making sure to get water heater replacement before your unit fails is crucial. Here are some of the signs that your unit is having problems:
If the water coming from your heater is not clear, it is generally a sign that there is rust internally. This will eventually cause your unit to leak, and should be resolved quickly.
If you notice any standing water around your water heater, it could be a sign that there is a leak. The same can be said for even a small amount of moisture. If you suspect a leak, contact a professional to schedule inspection.
Make certain to visually inspect your tank periodically. When checking it over, look for any rusted or corroded areas. Make sure to pay specific attention to the pressure relief and temperature valves as well as the outlet and inlet connections.
If you see any of these signs make sure to contact a skilled plumber to take care of the replacement process. To talk to a plumber today, contact Ritz Plumbing.
