A Texan Inspection employee recently found this while checking out a home. This corroded water heater wasn’t any more than four years old, which surprised us. Typically water heaters that decay are much older.
So even if you have a new water heater, make sure to check it for leaks! In general, check ’em on a regular basis. Go up into your attic every three or four months to check for leaks for pipes and around the base.
We can also help you with that — give us a call at 281-342-5762 to schedule an inspection.
