Common Hot Water Tank Problems

Common hot water tank problems consist of leaks from the top and bottom of the tank, there is none or not enough hot water, water is too hot or takes too long to reheat. Other problems can be that the hot water pressure is low, there are banging sounds coming from the tank, or the hot watercolor is dirty or rusty. Some of these problems are minor and can be fixed by adjusting switches or tightening wires and pipes, and replacing small parts like the thermostat. In other cases, with leaking sometimes the only solution is to replace the entire tank. You want to have annual maintenance done on the tank to avoid a lot of repairs from occurring and increase the lifespan of the tank. 

Cost of Installing a Hot Water Tank

An average hot water tank will cost you a little of $1000 for the tank and installation. If maintained and installed correctly the tank can last you around 10 years. The cost may vary depending on the size of the tank, so you must make sure you have the right size to keep up with the amount of hot water that may be used. The cost of having a hot water tank may increase your utility bill because it requires the tank to keep the hot water at the temperature you have it set to. Homeowners with hard water may be required to descale their water tank yearly to prevent build-up. With proper maintenance done annually, you can increase the lifespan of your water tank.
