Got A Leaking Water Heater?
Have you ever come home to find water all over the garage floor or noticed that you have no hot water in the shower. Is there a leaking water heater or water coming out of the closet where your water heater is?
- Water on the floor near the water heater
- Water running down the sides of the water heater
- No hot water and slight moisture around the bottom of the water heater
These are sure signs that your water heater has probably cracked on the inside. When you notice water leaking from the bottom of your water heater, this usually means there is a crack in the tank and the entire water heater will need to be replaced.
Sometimes a water heater can develop a leak from the top. This type of leak is usually caused by a fitting or a plumbing part that has malfunctioned. In this case, the water heater can often be repaired.
- Leaking from a flex line
- Leak from the shut off valve
- Leak from the T/P overflow line
Doing visual inspection of the water heater is a good way to see where the leak is coming from. It’s a good idea to have a step ladder and a flashlight handy. This way if you need to take a closer look at a certain part of the tank – you will already have the supplies you need.
