This one is pretty obvious. If you notice water anywhere near the unit, you need to call a plumber right away. Water heater leaks can result in flooding in your home, and you’ll want to get it fixed before it reaches this level of damage.
Over time, calcium sediments will build up in your water heater. Not only can this cause issues with hard water in your home, but it also compromises your tank’s efficiency. You’ll need to get your water heater service regularly & every 5 years to change all your valves, flushed out regularly to keep it running well. Most noises are caused by sediment that builds up in the water tank over the years - so if you’re hearing a lot of bangs, creaks, knocks, or whines, it may be a sign that it’s past time for flushing.
REPLACEMENT OF THE ANODE ROD
To prevent the water from corroding the inside of the tank, a water heater includes a “sacrificial” anode rod - a long piece of metal that the water eats away at instead of the tank walls. Over time, these rods are completely destroyed and need to be replaced, or the inside of the tank will begin to rust.
If your water is too hot or doesn’t seem to get hot enough, the thermostat on the unit may need to be adjusted.

Signs that your hot water system needs servicing or replacement
Problems tend to arise in heaters more than 10-15 years old, so we recommend replacing your tank if we feel a repair won’t do any justice. Not sure if you need a full replacement? Let’s look at some common signs that it’s time to replace:
Sometimes the tank makes noises because the heating element is burning out. If you have flushed out your tank and removed the sediment but are still hearing strange noises, it could be time to replace the entire unit.
HOT WATER STOPS ALTOGETHER
When our customers experience NO hot water, it’s likely there’s a broken heating element.
TOO MUCH SEDIMENT
Hot water tanks see a ton of usage over the years, especially if you have a large family. Most customers are surprised to learn that unchecked mineral buildup inside the tank can clog plumbing lines and shorten the life of the unit.
As mentioned above, heaters generally last 10-15 years. However, any hot water heater that is making noises, failing to produce hot water, or is unable to maintain a constant water temperature needs to be checked as soon as possible.
