The things you need to watch out for if you want to repair your water heater before it acts out are: 1. Water full of mud The first sign that your water heater is corroding is when you turn on the faucet and rust-coloured water comes out. Get your water heater changed as rust will form in the water supply lines and the seams of the tank, and lead to a bigger problem. 2. Strange rumbling noises Pay attention to the kind of noises your water heater is making. If you hear loud cracks, there is sediment build up inside the water tank. Sediments tend to harden after they’re heated continuously and this can cause rumbling noises in your water heater as it heats up. It is an indication that your water heater’s life is nearing its end. 3. Water accumulation around the heater Call for professional help if there’s water around your heater or if your water heater is leaking. This is a sign that your water heater has failed internally and it needs to be replaced. If you don’t attend to it in due time, it can cause flooding inside your house.
