What are the main reasons for a water heater to leak?

Published and updated

Our response

The main reason for a water heater leak is corrosion. Aggressive water will attack the weakest points inside the tank and will create a leak.

Make sure to change your water heater anode rod every year or install a Corro-Protec anode in order to stop corrosion inside your tank and prevent water heater leaking.
