The last thing you want in the morning is a cold shower! Having a hot water heater that works well is a luxury that you don’t want to go without. Keeping your hot water heater in good shape is important. But, what should you do if you find your water heater leaking?
The first sign you may notice of a water heater leak is a wet floor around your water heater. You may find yourself cleaning up puddles of water to keep that area dry. This may seem like a minor leak, but a water heater leaking can turn into a big problem fast!
Seeing puddles of water around a water heater is the first sign of what may become a larger problem. When a water heater leaks, it is a sign that a component part of your water heater may have broken down and is no longer properly functioning.
You should try to identify if the leak is coming from the top or the bottom of the water heater. Identifying the location of the leak will help to diagnose the needed repair to stop the water heater leaking.
It is a good idea to call a professional plumber to fix this type of leak. An experienced plumber will know how your water heater works and will be able to identify the problem causing the leak. Having a plumber fix the root cause of the water heater leak will ensure that the water heater continues to work well after the repair. If you want to know more, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
