How Long Can You Expect a Hot Water Heater to Last?

If you take care of it properly, you can expect your hot water heater to last you about 6 to 13 years, although it’s better to get it replaced if it’s older than 12. There are a few signs to look out for to indicate that something might be gumming up the works and that your water heater needs to be replaced:

  • Strange color in your water

  • Gurgling or popping noises

  • Water pooling around your water heater

  • Lack of hot water

Repairing a water heater is an enormous and potentially dangerous hassle that isn’t worth doing it yourself. Leave it to Mr. Rooter of Oakland-Berkeley, and it'll be working better than ever before.

Why Is My Hot Water Heater Noisy?

A rumbling, loud noise will usually indicates expanding heated water is escaping from sediment at the bottom of a tank.

Why Is My Water Heater Leaking?

If there is a leak at the top of your water heater, this usually indicates a malfunctioning plumbing part or fitting. In this case, you can most likely get your water heater repaired.

If the leak is coming from the bottom, this usually means you will need a total water heater replacement as there is most likely a crack in the internal tank.
