You should take the time to do regular checks on the exterior of your hot water tank; this will increase your chances of finding a developing problem before it becomes worse. Check the T & P valve for rust or water release issues, check the top-side hot and cold connectors for rust and pressure, check the drain valve for water release efficiency and ensure the pilot light is maintaining proper function. Check the temperature of the water. Is it still keeping it hot steadily? Is there any water leaking from underneath the hot water tank? Are your aerators free and clear of any white debris?

Now that you have a solid checklist to work from, if you should see any oddities or reasons for concerns, then we are here for you should you need us to come and double check your hot water tank.
