Water Heater Problems
The most common problem is usually a water heater leak. From loose valves to significant corrosion, the causes of a leaky water heater vary. Sometimes the detection of a water heater leak could be subtle, such as the decrease in water pressure. Other times, such as when water is spurting across the room, the leak may be a little more obvious. Either way, the specific cause of the leak could vary.
Water heaters do not last forever and the mixture of water and metal for years on end eventually leads to corrosion. The water inside the tank will first need to be drained, all of the fittings and pipes disconnected, and the water heater removed by a professional. Given that many water heaters are heated by natural gas or other fossil fuels, tampering with this without the proper licenses could cause an explosion.
