Drip, drip, drip goes the water heater on the floor. Why is your hot water heater leaking? Well, there is a long list of possible reasons. But, I am here to tell you that this is usually not a good sign and you may want to consider a new water heater.

A hot water heater is one of the most expensive appliances in the home. And it can be a daunting expense when it becomes time to replace the tank. But, at Carter’s My Plumber we offer great deals on new tank or tankless water heaters! Do not shy away to get an estimate.

Why is My Hot Water Heater Leaking?

Leak at the top?

If the water heater is leaking from the top. It could be the inlet/outlet pipes, or the valves connected to them. Feel around to see if there are any loose fittings or if a pipe has worn down.

Leak at the bottom?

If you find the water heater leak to be all around the bottom of the tank. It could be that the tank has a crack. If a crack is the cause to your leak. It is time to replace the water heater.

It Could Be The T and P Valve

The good ol’ T and P valve may make you relax a little if that is the cause of your leak. Because you may not have to replace the water heater just yet.This valve activates and releases water if the pressure in your home is a little too high or if the temperature gets too high. Click here for more info on the T and P valve.

Check the Drain Valve

The drain valve is toward the bottom of the water heater tank. Make sure the valve is completely turned off. If it is, then it may be an easy fix. Call a licensed plumber to help completely diagnose the problem and fix it.

Is it Time for a Hot Water Heater Replacement?

If your water heater is over 10 years old. Even if there is not a leak or a problem with it right now. It is about that time where you start thinking about replacing it before something does go wrong. Replacing water heaters is something we do daily here at Carter’s My Plumber! Below, is a short video of one of our techs installing a brand-new water heater!
