Common Water Heater Problems

A leaky tank may be hinting you need to replace your water heater.

Other Water Heater Problems
These signs can show that your water heater is about to break:
- Rumbling noises coming from the tank
- Discolored, cloudy or rusty water
- Foul-smelling water

As water heaters generally hold 50 gallons of water, a breakdown can result in a damaging flood.
