Sources of Water Leaks in Water Heaters

When a leak is discovered, it is often natural to jump to a conclusion that the water heater needs to be replaced. This is not always the case. In fact, there are repairs that may be made to stop the leak without replacing a hot water heater. Yes, there are times when a water heater is at a stage of deterioration and needs to be replaced with a new one, but it is important to have a professional examine the water heater and its connections to accurately determine exactly what the problem is and where the source of the leak is located.

Common sources of water leaks on and around water heaters include:

  1. Fresh water supply. The pipe above the water heater may leak water onto and below the water heater. The connection of the supply pipe going into the water heater should be inspected carefully.
  2. The temperature and pressure valve on the top of the water heater may leak, especially if the seal fails.
  3. The water line connectors on the top of the water heater may cause a leak.
  4. Drain line. The drain valve may not close completely following a flush, and may leak, requiring cleaning and repair, or replacement.
  5. Corrosion may cause the tank itself to rust from the inside out, leaking in cracks, fissures and holes anywhere on the tank. If this is the case, a replacement of the water heater is required.
