This will also increase the life of your water heater by several years. A timely repair can help save costly expenses. This blog will highlight 7 reasons that can generally cause leakage of water from your water heater.

  1. Temperature and pressure relief valve in a water heater:

The temperature and pressure relief valve keep your geyser working smoothly. The pressure builds up when the water gets heated up inside the tank. If the pressure inside the tank gets too high or the water gets extremely hot, the T/P valve will release some of the pressure out of the tank or the tank will automatically turn off. However, if this Temperature and pressure relief valve fail, it will start leaking. In this case, you will need a new valve, as the existing one has got damaged.

In a few cases, if the pressure gets very extreme, the tank may burst. This can be very dangerous and can cause injury to anyone who is standing closely. Therefore, call a Geyser service professional in case of a leak to repair your water heater at the earliest.

  1. Water heater drain valve

The heater drain valve is located near the bottom of the tank. If the water is leaking from the valve, you need to close the valve properly. When the valve gets broken or some residue builds-up, the tank leaks. If the drain valve keeps leaking, you will have to replace it.  The drain valve is an easy repair and the replacement cost is usually low.

  1. The Cold and Hot Water Inlet and Outlet Connections:

If the water is leaking from the inlet and outlet connection, it can be fixed very easily. The leakage can happen due to a loose connection over time. In this case, tightening the connection will solve the issue. A geyser service expert will tighten the connection in no time and will check the water heater thoroughly.

  1. Cracked storage tank:

Some water heaters come with glass-lined storage tanks and optional added storage tanks. A storage tank holds warm water and releases it as and when required. They also increase the storage capacity. In this type of water heater, minerals harden and gather in the tank and that can result in leaks and cracks. Therefore, replace it on an urgent basis by fixing an appointment with a Geyser service expert. You can use the OneDios app to do the same.

  1. Old tank:

The water starts to leak regularly when the tank gets old. Over some time, the geyser tank condition naturally gets worse. Overuse of water heater reduces the life of your water heater and rust also starts to develop. This leads to decaying and leaks. Therefore, if your water heater tank has become old, it is better to replace it. You can raise a request here

  1. Excess pressure:

When the water gets heated up, it creates steam, which builds up the pressure in the tank. If there is too much pressure in the tank, the water starts to leak through loose parts and cracks. The pressure also increases, when the water temperature is set very high. Whenever the water from the water supply goes into the system at high pressure, the tank will leak. A Geyser service expert can repair the leak as well as guide you to set the ideal temperature.

  1. Anode rod breakage:

This part of the water heater attracts all kinds of harsh materials in water. This makes the rod faces higher chances of rust in a water heater. Water also starts to leak when the rod breaks and it needs to be replaced. A geyser service expert will check the anode rod for extreme deterioration or a possible chance of breakage and replace it in time.
