Dangers of a Leaking Water Heater

A water heater that constantly drips water can cause water damage in your home, increase your energy bill, and add stress to an already stressful situation.

From the dangers of slipping and falling and water damage, a leaking water heater has the potential to be dangerous and in some cases, deadly.
  • Slips and falls
  • Pressure build-up in the tank
  • Water damage
  • Mold & Mildew
On average a water heaters last between 6-10 years. If your water heater has water puddling around the bottom of the heater, it may be a sign that the inner tank has reached the end of its life. However, it could also be caused by other issues.

What Causes a Water Heater to leak?

Water heaters and their surrounding parts are prone to condensation, overtime the condensation will gather and create a small puddle of water.

If after cleaning up the water and it never returns, you have nothing to worry about. If however, you are constantly wiping up water, your water heater or its components is most likely the culprit.

What may start as a small nuisance can, in fact, cause water damage over time and it’s a sure bet that the small trickle will only grow if neglected.

Although there are many pieces to the parts of the puzzle, there are several different reasons that a water heater is leaking.
  • Broken Temperature Valve
  • Broken Drain Valve
  • Water Heater Tank
  • Broken Heating element
  • Rusty Pipes

Is a leaking water heater easy to fix?

As the saying goes, if it was easy, everyone would be doing it.

From determining the source of the leak, depending on what source heats the water, be it electric or gas, you will need to turn off either the power or gas in your home as well as the water supply to safely work around the heater.

At Apple Plumbing Services we recommend that you call a professional plumber to repair or replace it.
