The Lifespan of Commercial Hot Water Tanks

Knowing the average lifespan of your commercial storage-tank water heater is key to avoiding costly repairs and setbacks. If there are any signs that your hot water storage tank is getting old or failing, You should schedule a consultation with an experienced commercial plumbing service. 

How Long Will Your Commercial Hot Water Tank Last

The life of your water heater will vary depending on usage and how well they are maintained over the years. That being said, tank-type water heaters typically last around 10-15 years. You should not wait until your water heater is failing or breaks down completely to have it replaced. With regularly scheduled maintenance, your plumber will be able to spot signs of your water heater’s inevitable break down and suggest a course of action before it’s too late. Regular maintenance on your hot water tank system can make sure that you get the most life out of your hot water tank and ultimately save money on expensive repairs and time spent without hot water.

When to Replace Your Commercial Hot Water Tank

There are several signs to look for when wondering whether or not to replace your old commercial hot water tank. The obvious sign that your water heater is not functioning as it should is the lack of hot water or very little hot water. If your hot water is coming out of your faucets looking rusty or discolored, the inside of your hot water storage tank may be decaying on the inside. Loud noises and leaks are other signs that you may be needing a new tank as well. A leak can be patched temporarily by a professional plumber but the tank will have to be replaced as soon as possible. An experienced plumber will be able to detect any possible issues during regular maintenance and suggest the best way to handle them.
