How to tell if it’s time for a hot water tank replacement
Signs that it’s time for your old hot water tank to go
- Water accumulation – pooling water around the area of your hot water tank may indicate a leak.
- Water-quality issues – sediment, rust, or very cloudy water can be signs of damaged internal parts.
- Inconsistent temperatures – lower water temperatures or shorter durations of hot water are signs that your unit is near the end of its lifespan.
- Rumbling noises – a noisy water tank is usually a result of sediment that’s built up on the inside of your unit.
- Overall age – traditional hot water tanks are only designed to last for 8 to 12 years; if yours is around that age, you should plan for a replacement.
