Signs Your Water Heater is Beyond Repair & Needs to Be Replaced

  • Water Heater Lifespans: Water heaters typically last between 8-12years before a replacement is needed. If your water heater is in that age range, it may very well need to be replaced. But if it’s not very old, a simple water heater maintenance service call to EJ Plumbing may be all you need.
  • Typical Water Heater Problems: Water heaters are fairly simple devices. They store and heat water, which makes them fairly reliable. However, they can develop problems as they age, especially if you have acidic or hard water, which can damage heating elements and cause hot spots within the unit that damage the glass liner.

My Water Heater is Leaking - Can it Be Repaired?

A leaking water heater is a serious problem; any kind of water leak can lead to costly water damage to drywall, floors, and personal property if not dealt with in a timely manner. If you have noticed a leak in your water heater, immediately call EJ Plumbing to have one of our water heater professionals assess the leak.

Depending on where the leak is coming from, it may be possible to repair your water heater instead of having to replace it altogether. Typically, leaks coming from valves or inlet/outlet connections are repairable; however, if your water heater is leaking from the bottom, it's probably time for a replacement, as this signals that the tank is already corroded beyond repair.
