Common Water Heater Questions

Explore answers to frequently asked questions about water heaters:

Water leaking from the bottom of your water heater could indicate various issues. The relief or drain valve is a common source of leaks and can be easily checked. If moist, it indicates leakage, which is typically an easy repair. However, tank damage due to sediment buildup or neglecting maintenance may lead to irreparable damage and corrosion. Excess pressure buildup in the tank can also cause leaks, prompting water to flow out via an overflow pipe. While releasing pressure can resolve immediate issues, it's advisable to consult an experienced plumber to ensure the system's safety.
