When to have your water tank replaced
Knowing when your water tank actually needs to be replaced can be a tricky question, especially for those that aren’t aware of how the system fully works. There are a few common ways to know when you’re water tank is nearing it’s days, and we’ve listed below some of the main factors you should be on the lookout for.
How old is your water tank? Determining the age of your water tank plays a major part in whether or not your water tank needs to be replaced. The older your water tank is, the more likely it is to break down. On a general basis, water tanks will last an average of 8 to 10 years, however you can easily double its lifespan proper maintenance. If your tank is fairly new, certain issues and repairs shouldn’t interfere with your tanks general lifespan; if your tank is already old the chances of you constantly having to spend money on repairs is higher, making a complete replacement possibly needed.
Any sort of leakages from your water tank is a red alert. Your tank shouldn’t be leaking, it’s there for a reason, and one of them is to keep water in! If you notice leakages from your tank, calling a plumber or specialist in water tanks and boilers like us is the first step you need to take. Leakages are a bad sign and they normally mean there is some sort of internal problem. These sort of problems are rarely repairable, and though some leakages can be repaired, depending on the age of your tank and its situation it may be worthwhile considering having it replaced.
Lurk warm or cold water
Noticed your water is lukewarm or cold? If it is, it shouldn’t be! Lukewarm or cold water is a sign that your water tank isn’t doing it’s job, and that there’s some sort of problem with its heating element. Another possible cause for the issue it a broken dip tube within the tank. A broken dip tube means the outgoing hot water is diluted by the incoming cold water, which then results in cooler water rather than the desired heat. However another cause may be due to the fact of an increase in your household’s need for hot water. If this is so, or if you’ve been using more hot water than usual, your water tank may be in perfect condition, but not able to meet your household’s hot water demand. If you’re not sure what the problem is, and you’ve been experiencing cold water, give us a ring as soon as possible and we’ll happily come over to check it out.
Discovering rusty water coming from you water tank may mean that your tank is rusting from the inside. Rusty water is never a good sign, not only is it unhealthy water and can cause skin and health problems, but it also means that your water tank is in danger of leaking.
Rumbling & Noise
Rust water is more common in old water tanks. The older the tank is, the longer it’s had time to build up sediments at the bottom of the tank. As the sediment is constantly heated and reheated over and over again, it will eventually harden and cause that rumbling or banging sound as the water is heated up. Sadly, this is one of the major signs that a replacement is needed as your water tank is at the end of its useful life.
