It's easy to forget that water heaters need to be maintained regularly if you want to get the most out of them. Ignoring signs that your water heater needs to be repaired is one of the most common causes of breakdowns that can be difficult and costly to repair. 

If you find that your water heater is suddenly less efficient, you might simply adjust the thermostat slightly up or down to better suit the needs of your home. You can also consider insulating your heater to keep it warm and reduce your hot water heating costs. You can hire hot water plumbing repairs in Torquay, Geelong, Surf Coast & Bellarine.

If you find a leak, you need to get a plumber to inspect your water heater to determine where the leak is coming from and fix it as soon as possible.

Another thing you may notice is that your heater is running more frequently and not producing as long hot water as it normally would. Ignoring the signs that your water heater needs service also means you're paying a much higher electricity bill than you should.

You can also see rusty liquid around the anode rods or even in the soil around the boiler. This is one of the biggest signs that the water heater needs repair. If you see red or orange liquid on the anode rod or at the bottom, clean the rod with bleach.
