What Should I Do If My Water Heater Leaks?

A leaky water heater can cause major damage to a house. It is important to stop the leak before it destroys your belongings or does extensive damage to your house itself.

1) Cut off the power supply

2) Turn off the water supply

3) Inspect for leak’s origins

How Often Should I Have My Water Heater Checked?

Everyone’s water heater is different, but everyone should consider scheduling a thorough review of their unit about once per year. This recommendation is especially true for folks who have water heaters that are over seven years old.

During a maintenance call, a 59 Rooter & Plumbing Service technician will inspect your unit for signs of rust and sediment. They will also test the unit’s valves to ensure they are all in proper working order.

Every water tank has a different life expectancy, but most units last for about six to ten years. Whenever you get a new water heater unit, it’s a good idea to jot down the warranty date so you’ll remember how long the tank should last.

What Should I Look for in a New Water Heater?

Choosing a new water heater is a complicated decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Believe it or not, about 20 percent of most householders’ energy bills go to the water heater.

Keep these questions in mind when researching new water heaters:

  • How many gallons does this water heater store? Standard sized tanks hold about 40 gallons, but you may need more or less depending on your family’s size.
  • How big is the water heater? Can you comfortably fit this new tank in your storage space?
  • Is the water heater compatible with your current power and pipe setup?
  • How much will your water heater cost on average? Would it be worthwhile to use an energy-efficient model (e.g., a solar-powered tank)?

Since everybody’s situation is different, we can’t recommend the perfect tank for you on this post. To get personalized advice from our expert plumber Ron, we strongly encourage you to call 59 Rooter & Plumbing Service at (602) 290-1448.

What Do I Do If My Water Heater Stinks?

If you happen to notice a funky smell from your water heater, then there’s a chance your tank’s water may have harmful bacteria. To take care of this troubling scenario, it’s a good idea to drain your tank completely and then mix in clean water with a tiny dose of hydrogen peroxide. After a few hours, you can flush this mixture and then put in fresh water.

Please call 59 Rooter & Plumbing Service if you still notice a foul smell after using this trick.

How Can I Extend the Life of My Water Heater?

The best strategy to extend your water heater’s lifespan is to drain your tank regularly. Proper drainage will get rid of any excess debris in your tank. Usually, we recommend Glendale homeowners flush their tanks at least once per year.

Another good preventative measure you could take when checking your water heater is to inspect the unit’s pressure-relief valve. Place a bucket beneath the pressure-relief valve’s drainage tube and push up on the plug. Let the water drain into the bucket for a few seconds. If water doesn’t trickle into the bucket or if you notice a leak, then it’s time to change your pressure-relief valve.

Of course, you could also schedule an appointment with 59 Rooter & Plumbing Service if you have any issues with your water heater. Our technicians will share expert maintenance tips that can help preserve your water heater for the long haul.
