Water Heater Leaking?

PlumberMelbourne4u Knows How To Fix A Leaking Hot Water Heater

A hot water tank leaking is more than just a minor inconvenience. Even a small puddle of water can be an indication of a problem that could quickly become a water damage catastrophe.

Think you have a leak?

If you suspect your hot water tank is leaking, here’s what to do first:

  • Determine if there is a leak. Sometimes condensation can build up on the tank and drip onto the floor. Feel the outside of the tank to see if it is wet.

  • There are usually a lot of other plumbing fixtures and pipes near a hot water tank. Check to see if one of those is the source of the leak.

  • If it’s a small puddle of water, wipe it up. Check regularly to see if it returns within hours or a day.

Yes – it is a leak

If you discover a large puddle of water, you have a hot water heater tank leaking emergency on your hands and must take immediate action.

Don’t wait for the water to seep into the sub-flooring and make its way into the drywall. That can cause long-term problems like warped flooring, rotting wood and mould. And it will be costly to repair.

Take action and call PlumberMelbourne4u.
