Is your Water Heater Leaking?

Have you ever stood in the shower to find no hot water coming out or suddenly there is water all over the garage floor?

 

Is there a leaking water heater or water coming out of the closet where your water heater is?

 

  • No hot water and slight moisture near the bottom of the water heater
  • Water running down the sides of the water heater
  • Water on the floor near the water heater
These are tell-tale 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.

  • Leak from the shut off valve
  • Leaking from a flex line
  • Leak from the T/P overflow line

Performing a visual inspection of the water heater is a good way to see where the leak is coming from. It is a good idea to have a flashlight and a step ladder handy. This way if you need to take a closer look at a certain part of the tank – you will already have the tools you need.

Leaking Water Heater Photos

Observe closely! You may not see water at the bottom of your water heater or there might not be a noticeable leakage. If you see rust stains running down the tank or a large buildup of corrosion, it could be a sign of a leak from a different area. This is a good time to do an visual inspection and call for help.
