Other Water Heater Problems
These signals can be an indication that your water heater is about to break:
- Booming noises coming from the tank
- Discolored, white-colored or rusty water
- Foul-smelling water
- Leaking pressure relief valve
Since water heaters commonly hold 50 gallons of water, a breakdown can lead to a catastrophic flood.
