4 Signs of Age-Related Issues With Your Water Heater

Your home’s water heater is one of the most important appliances you own. Your water heater is solely responsible for supplying hot water through your plumbing system. The average water heater will last at least 12 years, and sometimes even longer, with regular care and maintenance.

Don’t ignore age-related issues with your water heater. Read on to learn the signs of water heater failure so you can replace or repair your unit before you run out of hot water.

  1. Discolored Water

Your water heater is showing its age if the hot water you run has a yellow, orange, or red tinge to it. If your cold water is also discolored, then the issue is probably related to aging pipes rather than the water heater itself — although you should still have your water heater inspected.

A number of things can cause smelly drains, but these three are the most common sources of drain odors in residential properties.
