Water heater leak
The worst water heater problems that can happen is a leaking tank. Unfortunately, once that happens, that tank is gone out of commission and needs to be replaced.
Old water heater problems
Internal damage to water heaters is caused by sediment build up. Over time sediment buildup usually occurs when water is heated and the chemical elements inside the water heater start to form along the insides of the tank and the burner, sediment formation inside the water heater will reduce the performance and efficiency of water heaters.
The flame of the burner is normally the color blue with small yellow flames on top. If that is not the color of the flame and your flame is more orange-yellow that means the tank is letting out carbon monoxide gas, which is harmful to your home and your family.
Keep your water heater in peak performance by requesting a Sam & Sons plumber to come out and inspect your water heater.
