Signs Your Water Heater Needs Replacing

We’re accustomed to our water heaters doing their jobs without complaint, and with regular maintenance sessions, yours should be able to last you a good long time. But no system lasts forever, and even with regular servicing, your water heater will need replacing sooner or later. The high humidity here in Atlanta, GA takes its toll, and even in the cooler months, water heaters can suffer from wear and tear. You can’t always tell when your water heater needs replacing, but there are usually telltale signs that suggest a significant problem. Here are a few of them for you to look out for.


Rust is usually a sign that your tank has run its course, which is why you should get the anode rod in your tank replaced on a regular basis. When rust builds up on the sides of the tank, it can turn the water in your faucets a dirty red color: especially the hot water faucets. If your water looks rusty, shut off the plumbing and call in a professional immediately.


Sometimes, when a breach occurs in your water tank, it will seal itself again after the water cools down. That can make it extremely difficult to spot. It does leave puddles of water behind, however. Even if the situation doesn’t require replacing the whole water heater, those puddles are trouble, and require a plumber’s attention.


No one likes that horrible feeling when their lovely hot shower suddenly runs out of hot water. If you find your hot water lasts shorter and shorter, then it might be a sign that your water heater is approaching the end of its life. The same might be said if your monthly heating bills start to go up without any attendant cause.
