Signs That You Need Water Heater Replacement

In some cases, water heaters will be damaged beyond the point of repair. When this occurs, Stan’s Heating, Air & Plumbing happily offers water heater replacement in Austin, TX as well. While some of the issues below are repairable, they are often telltale signs that replacement will be necessary sooner than later.

Old Age

Older water heaters are an issue you can’t really get around. After a water heater has reached the end of its 10-15 year lifespan, it will begin to malfunction beyond repair. If your water heater is older than 10 to 15 years, you can expect any plumbing expert to recommend water heater replacement.


Rust is another issue that may be a sign that your water heater needs replacement. When a water heater starts rusting, it means that the structural integrity of the unit is starting to fail. When it fails entirely, it can result in several inches of water flooding the area surrounding your water heater. If there is excessive rust on your water heater, expect a plumber to recommend a replacement.

Excessive Leaking

While minor leaks from the water heater can be easily repaired by a plumber, more excessive leaking usually cannot be repaired and calls for replacement. Severe leaks from the tank itself are the result of a failure of the tank structure, meaning that the whole unit itself has become ineffective. Excessive water leaking from your water heater will likely require your water heater to be replaced entirely.

Water Heater Maintenance

Flushing a hot water tank is a necessary part of water heater maintenance. Flushing helps clear sediment and mineral buildup in your water system. While flushing a water tank may sound like a straightforward task, it is one that requires expertise and specific tools to execute properly. A water heater involves dealing with water and natural gas, both elements that can damage your home and endanger your family if not dealt with properly. As such, we strongly suggest hiring plumbers with water heater experience to handle flushing your unit.

Benefits of Water Heater Maintenance

In addition to providing consistent hot water and peace of mind, a well-maintained water heater offers additional benefits, such as:

  • Improved Efficiency
  • Lower Energy Bills
  • Water Conservation
  • Reduced Risk of Contamination
  • Increased Life Expectancy

If you believe your water heater needs repair or would simply like us to inspect and maintain your equipment, contact us to schedule an appointment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to fix my water heater?

If hot water takes forever to come out of your faucets, or if water is only lukewarm, you may need to repair your water heater. Other signs include seeing leaking water or smelling gas near your water heater.

Do I need to flush my water heater?

It is recommended that homeowners flush their hot water tanks twice a year to clear sediment and mineral buildup. Because water heaters deal with water and natural gas, we recommend reaching out to an experienced Austin plumber who can flush your water heater as part of a maintenance routine.
