Why Your Water Heater May Be Leaking
While there are a number of reasons as to why your water heater may be leaking, there are some common causes that you can check for. Not only will this help you communicate with your local plumber but it will also help us get a better understanding of how we can help you! Here are some of the reasons why your water heater is leaking.
- The Drain Valve - A loose drain valve may be the reason that your water heater is leaking. This may have been caused by something bumping your heater or if your heater is older.
- Increased Amount of Pressure - Your tank may have built up an excessive amount of pressure, leading the water to leak out of the tank. This can happen if the temperature on the water heater is set too high.
This can also happen if the exterior water supply to the home is set at too high of a pressure. A defective water pressure relief valve can also lead to a build up of pressure in the water heater.
- Old Tank - Water heaters are built to last, but no matter how careful you are, some normal wear and tear can be expected. If you’ve had your tank for a while, it may be at the end of its life cycle. If corrosion and rusting has started, this can allow the water from the tank to leak out. When this happens, you will most likely need to replace your water heater. If you do not, this may lead to complete failure of the tank that may cause large amounts of water to flood your home.
If this is the case for you, we will even take your old water heater away at no extra cost.
