Puddles | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

When you have a leak, it’s time to call Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.

You were looking forward to going to Tarpon Springs this morning for the arts and crafts festival. That is, you were looking forward to the trip until you stepped into a puddle in your bathroom. 

The puddle was in front of the door that hides the water heater from view, so you’re assuming your hot water heater has sprung a leak. Now you’re wondering it you need a new water heater.

You might. Water heater leaks can be caused by several things, according to waterheaterhub.com. Among those are leaking valves and condensation. If that’s the case, you might be able to simply replace the valve. On the other hand, if you have a leaking tank, the only option is likely to be a new water heater.

“Water heaters that are not cleaned out periodically can build up sediment in the tank. Salt and other chemicals in the sediment may lead to premature rusting or corrosion inside of a water heater and eventually cause pinhole leaks to form,” waterheaterhub.com says. “Once a pinhole leak is opened up, the pressure of the water inside the tank forcing its way through the opening will cause the leak to get larger over time. The best solution for this problem is to replace the tank with a new unit. A leaking tank is an obvious sign of a water heater needing to be replaced.”

Replacing a water heater is generally a job for a professional plumber like the plumbing pros at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
