How Long Does a Water Heater Typically Last?

The lifespan of a water heater varies depending on factors such as its type, quality, maintenance, and water quality. Generally, tank-type water heaters last around 8 to 12 years, while tankless heaters can last up to 20 years. Routine maintenance can help extend the lifespan of your water heater.

Signs You Need Water Heater Repair:

  • Rusty water -
    If you're getting rusty water in both the hot and cold water, you probably have rusty pipes. If you're only getting rusty water with your hot water then it's your water heater. Traditional tank water heaters usually have anode rods to keep rust at bay.
  • Unpleasant odors -
    If your hot water smells it's likely that either minerals are building up or your tank is pealing and the inner coating is getting in your water.
  • Reduced hot water -
    Reduced hot water can have a few causes. If you have a gas unit, your pilot light could be out. If you have an electrical unit, it's possible it's tripping the circuit breaker. The thermostat could also be not working properly or maybe your heating element is dying.
  • Excessive noise -
    This snapping or popping noise usually happens when water heaters overheat due to mineral build-up. All water heaters make some noise, but if it's significantly loud you should have our Torrance water heater repair team come and help.
  • Pools of water -
    It's most likely that the inner tank is starting to crack. Even if it's a slow leak, it's still significant and one of our Torrance water heater repair specialists should check it out.
  • Low water pressure for hot water -
    When mineral build-up gets significant, it could be clogging your water system. All mineral build-up issues just need a thorough cleaning from a trained professional
  • Temperature is fluctuating -
    A cracked dip tube will bring about temperature fluctuations. The dip tube's job is to bring cold water into the water heater. If the dip tube cracks, then cold water will flow into the part of the water heater that's supposed to have hot water.

Why is My Water Heater Leaking?

A leaking water heater can be a frustrating and potentially costly issue to deal with. Fortunately, understanding the reasons behind the leakage can help you take appropriate action. Here's a concise explanation of why your water heater might be leaking:

  • Corrosion: Over time, the inside of the water heater tank can corrode, leading to small holes or cracks that permit water to escape.
  • Pressure Relief Valve: A malfunctioning or over-pressurized relief valve can cause water to leak from the valve itself.
  • Temperature and Pressure Valve: Similar to the relief valve, issues with the temperature and pressure valve can result in leaks.
  • Drain Valve: If the drain valve at the tank's bottom is not tightly closed or is damaged, it can leak.
  • Inlet or Outlet Connections: Loose or worn fittings at the water heater's inlet and outlet connections can result in leaks.
  • Condensation: In humid conditions, condensation may form on the tank's exterior, resembling a leak.
  • Sediment Buildup: Accumulated sediment at the tank's bottom can lead to hot spots, causing the tank to overheat and develop leaks.
  • Excessive Pressure: High water pressure in your home can strain the water heater, causing leaks.

Promptly addressing a leaking water heater is crucial to prevent damage and maintain safety. If you're uncertain about the cause or unable to resolve it yourself, it's wise to consult a licensed plumber from Tony's Plumbing, Inc. to avoid further issues and ensure your water heater operates effectively.
