If there is water leaking from the bottom of your water heater, this usually means there is a crack in the internal tank and your water heater will need to be replaced. Sometimes a water heater can develop a leak from the top, this is usually caused by a fitting or a plumbing part that has malfunctioned. In this case, the water heater can most often be repaired.

This water heater is an old A.O. Smith that had a leak from the top. The leak went undetected for quite some time until the customer no longer had hot water. What a rusty surprise they found when they opened the outside closet. They called us right away and had a new water heater installed the same day.

One of our good property management clients called and said the tenants were complaining of no hot water. We went to take a look and found this old rusty leaking commercial water heater. We were able to replace the commercial water heater that day for a low cost, keeping the tenants and our property management client happy.
