There may already be a slow leak, especially if a number of years have passed since you’ve checked on it. What is the culprit? It is your water heater.

Most people recognize that water heaters needs to be changed out every ten years or so.

If you want it out of site for cosmetic reasons, make sure you have easy access, and check it regularly.

What could cause a water heater flood ?

A common problem is water heaters going bad due to temperature changes. Extreme climate changes can weaken the lines that bring in cold water and send out the hot water. These are the two places that water heaters most commonly fail. Make sure the area where your water heater is does not experience extreme changes in temperature throughout the year.

Another problem area causing water heater leaks are rusty bottoms inside the water tank. Water heaters must be drained and flushed annually. Lack of this crucial regular maintenance can cause sediment to accumulate inside the water tank. This sediment then causes rust and premature water heater failure in the internal integrity affecting its ability to hold water.
