The water heater is an incredibly reliable appliance, built to last up to a couple of decades. However, it is neither perfect nor forever. There are a host of issues that can plague the water heater. Let’s talk about a few things that can go wrong.
Over time, minerals and sediments present in water can settle at the bottom of the water heater tank. As sediment accumulates, it can reduce the heater's efficiency, making it work harder to heat water and potentially causing overheating.
Water heaters are also susceptible to corrosion, especially if not adequately maintained. The anode rod is a sacrificial component that prevents the tank from corroding. When the anode rod is depleted, the tank becomes more vulnerable to corrosion, increasing the risk of leaks and premature water heater failure.
On the riskier side of the scale, there are pressure valve issues. The temperature and pressure relief valve (TPR valve) is essential for maintaining safe pressure levels inside the tank. A malfunctioning TPR valve can lead to excessive pressure buildup, potentially causing the tank to rupture.
Honorable mentions include faulty thermostats and heating elements. If your water heater is showing signs of trouble, then call Rooter Hero to arrange water heater repair as soon as possible.
