Do You Need to Replace Your Water Heater?
Many of the common problems owners experience with their water heaters are due to a buildup of minerals in their tanks. This buildup happens over time, but if left unattended can cause a lot of damage to your unit. This damage can even lead to leaks, which can culminate in water damage in your home.
Safe to say, these water heater problems can become excessive. While an aging water heater can be repaired, a point comes where the best option is to replace the unit.
Keep an eye out for these signs. If you spot any of them, it’s possibly time to have your water heater replaced with a newer, more efficient unit.
- Misty or Foul-Smelling Hot Water: The minerals that flood your water heater can damage the system from the inside. They can cause a metallic-smelling discharge, and can even build up to the point where they block the flow of water.
- Rusted or Leaking Connections: Every water heater has an anode rod that helps prevent corrosion. Its usefulness degrades over time, so if you see any rusting or leaking, it could be due to this piece no longer functioning. If there is excessive rusting, no amount of repairs will provide the solution that a new water heater could provide.
- Noisy Operation: Excessive noises -- banging, grinding, or anything of the like -- mean that your system either has loose parts or is working with degraded parts. A plumber can figure out what the problem is, and then advise you on the best steps to solve the issue.
- Insufficient Hot Water: Your water heater heats water, so if water isn’t being heated by your water heater, there’s a problem. This can be due to the unit simply being too old, or again, one of the components is malfunctioning.

It is a process that uses water at high pressures to blast away any clogs that are in your pipes. It is a great option because it is not limited by the length of a tool and uses only water which means no harm to the environment or your pipes.
