When to replace your water heater?

All water heaters eventually need to be replaced. We’re often called in to replace or repair non-functioning heating elements and thermostats. And, we frequently replace water tanks.

Here in the Tucson area, water quality is the leading cause of problems with water heaters. That’s because homes and business throughout southern Arizona are usually supplied with very “hard” water, which contains large amounts of minerals.

Over a period of time, the minerals in tap water are deposited in the form of “scale” on the inside of your water pipes and hot water tank.

These deposits tend to restrict the flow of water as well as block the heating effect, so your water heater becomes less efficient and more expensive to operate.

Also, sediment and sand tend to build up on the inside of water tanks and pipes over time. This makes your water heater even less efficient.

Sometimes sediment can be removed, but usually it combines with mineral scale to make the overall problems worse.

Once the mineral scale and sediment builds up to a point where they block the pipes or corrode the tank, then it’s time for your hot water heater replacement.
