Q. When do we need to replace our water heater?
A. Water heaters usually last 9 to 12 years. However, some people proactively replace their water heaters before they start leaking.
When the tank in a water heater starts leaking, you need to change the water heater. However, a leak can occur from other sources too. Leaks occurring from non-tank sources, such as the heater's drain valve, its temperature and pressure valve, or its inlet or outlet pipes, can be fixed.
Q. There is a puddle on the floor by the water heater. What should I do?
A. If there is a water puddle around the water heater:
Turn the gas control knob (on the gray box near the bottom) to "OFF."
Turn OFF the water valve supplying the water heater (it is usually located on the water line on the top right-hand side).
Hook a hose up to the drain and drain it to a suitable place.
