The sooner you recognize signs of water heater issues,the quicker you can have them repaired and able to prevent any more damages.Here is a guide taking a look at some common water heater issues.
The water heaters in the home can last for a very long time, as long as they’re taken care of properly. Eventually, the wear and tear of every day normal usage will result in water heaters issues.
Cracked Dip Tube
Water heaters contain a part called the dip tube, which runs from the water line down through the top of the tank and let’s out near the bottom. The purpose of the dip tube is to direct all water entering the tank to the bottom, where it will remain separate from the hot water leaving the tank and will be able to warm up much faster since it’s closer to the burner assembly. If the dip tube develops a crack, it can leak cold water into the mix. If you’re suddenly getting blasts of cold water in the middle of an otherwise-warm stream, it might be because you have a problem with your water heater’s dip tube.
Leaks are a serious issue for any system that deals with water on a regular basis, but especially for water heaters.
