Common Water Heater Damage
Sediment can often build up in water heater tanks and damage them. In order to remove these sediments, you may need to drain the tank. To perform this task, it is recommended that you hire a plumber to avoid any issues.
If you see any rust or metal in the water coming from your tank, immediately call ARS®/Rescue Rooter®. The rust or metal particles may indicate that the anode rod in your tank needs to be replaced. This rod attracts corrosive elements that are in the tank water and keeps them from creating rust on the tank’s liner. Another issue to look for is corrosion on the water heater liner. If it corrodes, the unit can begin leaking. If your water heater’s drain pan is old or installed incorrectly, leaking water could damage your home’s walls, floors, or ceilings, depending on where the water heater is located within your home.
As a precaution, always shut off the gas or turn off the power at your circuit breaker before inspecting your water heater.
Should You Repair or Replace Your Water Heater?
A good rule to consider is that you should never spend more than half the replacement cost on a water heater repair. Typically, a water heater that breaks down after a warranty expires should be replaced. In most instances, the cost savings from the increased efficiency of a new water heater far outweighs the poor performance of the old water heater.
What to consider when replacing
- Fuel type, availability and cost
- Number of people living in your home (hot water demand)
- Cost of unit as it relates to annual operating cost
- Estimated energy efficiency of various models
- Maintenance and repair information
- How well your old unit supplied your demand
- Length of warranty
