Signs of Leaks or Corrosion
If you notice any signs that your water heater is leaking, no matter how slow or minor a leak you may think it to be, you must have your system repaired immediately. This is certainly possible in most cases where a connection or pipe is leaking. If you own a tank water heater, though, and the tank itself is leaking, then you may have to replace the water heater. Any signs of rust or corrosion also indicate the need for repairs.
Soaring Operational Costs
Is your water heater operating reliably, but inexplicably inefficiently? Then something is most definitely wrong with your system.

Let us evaluate the situation to determine if repairs are necessary to get your system back on track in terms of efficiency.
It’s easy to recognize this one, especially when you’re waiting to take a shower on a cold winter morning.
