My Water Heater Is Leaking | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

If your water heater is leaking, it’s time to get a new one. Billy the Sunshine Plumber can help you with that.

You spent a pleasant evening last night strolling through Sims Park to look at the decorated Christmas trees. The sight put you in a good holiday mood that was spoiled when you got home. You had opened your utility closet to change the filter on your HVAC unit and you happened to glance down. Your water heater, which is also in the closet, had a small puddle of water around it.

That sounds as if your water heater has a leak. That’s one of the prime signs that your water heater needs to be repaired or replaced, according to Angie’s List.

If you notice moisture around your water, you may have a small leak or a fracture in the tank. As the metal heats, it expands and if there are slight fractures, water may leak from the tank. Once the metal has cooled the inner tank will stop leaking,” Angie’s List says. “However, before replacing your water heater, make sure there are no other leaks coming from either the fittings or connections to the tank. Also, make sure the temperature/pressure overflow pipe is not leaking. If all of the connections and fittings are dry, it may be time to replace the water heater.”

Leaks are not the only indication that an aging water heater needs to be replaced. Other signs include no hot water, rusty water, and rumbling or other noises from the heater.

“If you are concerned about water heater failure or if you discover any of the signs above, contact a plumber,” Angie’s List advises.
