Signs that the water heater is about to fail


0

Should you take a few minutes standing in the shower to allow time to heat up the water? You won’t want to imagine the day you’ll wake up and realize that it’s no longer working. Water heaters have a life span of 10 to 15 years before they are replaced. Fortunately, if you are careful enough, you can know when you are about to fail. Four telltale signs that the geyser is about to fail are discussed; Weird roaring or popping noises, as if popcorn are cooking, are a good indication of a geyser failure. When hard water heats up, mineral sludge builds up at the bottom of the water tank, isolating the water tank from the burner. The popping sounds you can hear produce when mineral deposits are incredibly heated up into steam. In the process of heating water and sludge, the geyser becomes overloaded. Even worse, the mud may compress the tank to the point that it cracks and begins to leak. When it comes to this point, you need the services of a professional to replace the water heater. Water around the base of the heater If you notice water nearby, the leak may be from two locations. First, the temperature and pressure (T&P) valve may release excess steam, which then condenses into the water and leaves the tube. This is completely normal. If the water is in excess, be sure to contact a professional plumber. The second possibility is water leakage from the tank into the water heater. If the leak is around the base of the heater, this is an indication that the heater is leaking internally. The tiny cracks inside the water heater tank that come from the expansion and contraction of the water tank as it heats and cools down. In such a scenario, you would need a professional, highly trained and licensed plumber to replace the water heater. Cloudy, smelly, or metallic-tasting water If you notice any of these indicators, the water heater will soon malfunction. It is caused by the accumulation of excess mineral sludge that comes from heating hard water. A plumber can install anode rods that are capable of attracting corrosive minerals into the water reducing the possibility of heater liner corrosion and bad odor.
