Common Causes of Water Heater Leaks

We rely on our hot water heaters to make our day to day lives easier and more comfortable. Unfortunately Water Heaters don’t last forever and will eventually start to leak!

  • Old Water Heater: Tank style water heaters older than about 15 years leak more frequently than newer water heaters. As time goes on, the internal water heater parts start to wear out and the tank doesn't perform as well. Water heater leaks due to old age often are a result of rust forming within the tank. Corrosion of the tank will start to take place which will cause water to leak through the cracks.
  • Too Much Pressure: Once in a while a water heater can build up too much pressure resulting in leaking from either the top or bottom of the tank.
  • Broken Drain Valve:A Broken or Loose Drain Valve is one of the most common causes of water heater failure and leakage.
  • Cracked storage tank:Some water heaters have an additional tank to increase the amount of water they can hold. They are manufactured using glass to line the tank. However over time minerals will start collecting and calcifying on the glass. Unfortunately this will cause the glass to crack and spring a leak resulting in water damage.
