Your water heater can last many, many years if you take proper care of it. Part of taking care of your water heater, though, is catching any problems it may run into as early as possible. The faster you can catch any water heater problems that may come up, the faster you can get them repaired and the longer your system will last. Let's take a look at some of the more common water heater problems that can afflict your system.
Any water heater is going to become exhausted if you put enough demand on it. However, if your water heater can't keep up with even a moderate amount of demand it's usually a sign that you have a problem. There are a couple of different reasons why your water heater may be losing output. You may have a problem with your burner assembly, which prevents the water in the system from being heated properly. Maybe your circulator pump is broken, which means that your water heater has plenty of hot water that it simply can't distribute.
Any system that deals with large amounts of water is going to have to worry about rust. This is true for water heaters, as well. Most water heaters have measures in place to protect against rust. However, these measures are not 100% effective. If you notice rust forming on your water heater, no matter where it is or how little of it is present, you should call for repairs right away. Advanced rust can cause all kinds of problems if you leave it alone long enough.
