Water heaters are important aspects of your home's plumbing system. They help just about everywhere--doing the dishes, washing clothes, taking a shower, even washing your hands (if you don't enjoy freezing water, that is!). We rely a lot on this one device, so even the smallest issue can quickly turn into a serious challenge. Luckily, there are a few warning signs that can tip you off about trouble before disaster strikes.
Water Heater Problems
Water heaters are susceptible to all kinds of small issues here and there, but the truly formidable problems occur almost exclusively during the winter. This is because of the extreme temperature fluctuations that can take place in some of the places we store water heaters. The metal tanks respond to the temperatures and react to the surroundings, expanding, contracting, and generally weakening. On top of that, water heaters also face danger from the mineral content in your water--and that, unfortunately, can be a problem during any season. However, most water heater problems, big and small, have warning signs; you just have to know what to look for.
