Does A Broken Water Heater Need Emergency Plumbing Repair?
Every American homeowner depends on their water heaters to deliver hot water on demand. And, while your water heater is an appliance like any other, sometimes, when these systems fail, it can be dangerous if you have to wait too long to get it fixed.
Although not every water heater problem warrants a call to a plumber for emergency repair, here are a few things that might nudge you in that direction.
How Dangerous Is It?
If you’re not getting the amount of hot water you’re used to, then you can probably wait to schedule an appointment. However, if your water heater is leaking and you run the risk of water damage, calling for help immediately makes sense.
How Long Will You Have To Wait?
Another factor that determines whether you need water heater repair now or if you can wait is the time you’ll be without hot water. If the water heater breaks down during the week, then you can probably get by for a day or two without hot water while waiting for a technician to arrive. However, if you’re facing being without hot water for multiple days, such as during a holiday, then calling for emergency help is advisable.
Where Is The Leak?
If you notice that there’s water leaking from your water heater, the leak’s location can determine whether you can wait for an appointment or you need immediate help. If the leak is coming from the valve pipes that connect the water heater to your plumbing system, you can rest easy because it’s a relatively simple repair. However, if the leak is coming from the tank itself, call for help right away because it means the tank is structurally unsound and requires immediate replacement.

Since we all depend on having hot water every day, your home’s hot water system must function efficiently. However, eventually, every water heater will fail. Still, if you become familiar with the signs that your system is breaking down, you can plan to replace it before the inevitable happens. Below are the most common signs that you must replace your water heater soon.
The average lifespan of a water heater is between 10 and 15 years, so if yours is reaching its advanced years, start putting away money and plan or replacing it soon.
Your Water Heater Makes Odd Sounds
As your water heater gets older, it’s common for sediment to build up inside the tank. Sediment buildup can cause the water heater to emit strange noises, such as rumbling, popping, and banging. Call a professional plumber for an inspection when you hear these sounds or other strange noises coming from your water heater.
You Get Rusty Water
Another sign that water heater replacement is inevitable is if the water coming out of the faucet is rust-colored. Sometimes, the rust color comes from a worn-out anode rod, and sometimes it comes from the inside of the tank.
The Hot Water Doesn’t Last As Long As Before
Remember when your water heater was new, and you could take a hot shower for what seemed like an hour, and now you’re lucky to get ten minutes? If the hot water doesn’t last as long as it used to, it could be due to that dreaded sediment buildup, or it could be that the heating element is failing.
As mentioned, if you notice water pooling around the base of your water tank, check to see where the leak is coming from, and if you determine that it’s from the tank, call for an emergency replacement before you have a flood on your hands.
