When to Replace Your Water Heater
There are many common signs that it is time to schedule a water heater replacement in Fort Worth, TX with Lasiter And Lasiter Plumbing. If you need water heater repair for any of the following symptoms, contact us immediately.
Aging Water Heater: As a general rule of thumb, water heaters that have been in service for over 10 years should be replaced as a precaution. Failure to maintain your water heater can mean that failure occurs even earlier. You want to be sure to avoid a total water heater break down resulting in a substantial leak.
Rusty Water: Typically, this is caused by aging pipes that are accumulating rust on the inside of the pipe. Water picks up the rust as it flows through your pipes and out of your faucet and into your home. Another major cause of rusty water is rust inside your water heater. A plumber will check this by draining your water heater of roughly five buckets of water. By the third bucket, all of the rusty water should be drained, or your water heater is to blame. If a water heater is rusting on the inside of the tank then, you need to replace your water heater before it begins to leak.
Noisy Water Heater: Over time, sediment builds up in the bottom of your water heater. This sediment hardens when it is heated and will result in loud banging sounds as these hardened chunks clang into the side of your water heater. Hardened sediment in your water heater’s tank means that it is time to replace your water heater.
