A hot water tank is a device that stores and warms up water for domestic use or space heating. The most common sign that a hot water tank is malfunctioning is lack of hot water or limited hot water. Visible signs such as rust or water puddles under the tank would be cause for concern. Hot water tanks can eventually spring a leak and could cause severe water damage if not caught in time. Consistent verification of your hot water tank can help you in identifying a problem. If the problem has begun without your attention, don’t panic, simply call S&R Plumbing to have one of our certified plumbers fix the problem before it persists.
