How do you know when its time to replace a Water Heater?
Although a water heater does not fail often, it does tend to happen. When it does this is how you know if it is a repair needed or a complete replacement. If you have a gas water heater and the water is no longer getting hot most likely 90% chance you only need a small parts replacement. If it is an Electric Water Heater that is not getting hot most likely you need a few small parts replaced. However, if the water heater is leaking water there is a good chance that it will have to be replaced with a newer more efficient Water Heater and brought up to Dallas code for safety.
