Rusty Water? Leaks?
What specific signs are you seeing that have made you realize you have a hot water heater problem?
Besides not having hot water, your system may give subtler hints that it’s about to go for good. For one, if the hot water coming out of your taps is rusty but the cold water isn’t, it’s a sign your tank is getting old. This is a normal progression, but it doesn’t mean you should live with rusty water. It’s time to get a new tank.
Second, you might notice small leaks near the water heater. If water is leaking from a valve, it might be repairable. But a significant amount of water coming from the bottom of the tank means the internal lining has corroded.
