Do you have any of these problems? Then it’s time to bring in a professional for repairs.
In addition to repairing problems as they happen (seriously, don’t wait for them to get worse–have them fixed right away), annual tune-ups are important. During your yearly hot water tank inspection, your plumber should flush out your hot water heater to remove sediment buildup, perform safety checks, and make sure that your water heater is running as efficiently as possible.
Most hot water tanks will not last more than 10-15 years. If your tank is getting older, you may want to consider replacing it entirely instead of repairing it. Older heaters will start to require repairs frequently and it makes more sense and saves you more money to simply get a whole new water heater at that point.
