According to Erie Insurance water heaters can fail on homeowners for any one of several reasons:
Water heaters are filled with water, so rust will always be a potential problem in units with metal parts.
Water in and around Apache Junction is hard and loaded with various minerals in it. When water is heated up, mineral deposits separate and settle on the bottom. Over time this can build up making the unit less efficient and cause problems later. Flushing the water heater at least annually will help to keep it running clean.
High water pressure.
High water pressure can damage pipes and the water heater itself. One way to tell is if there are water leaks around the overflow pipe area. Keep water pressure to no higher than 80 psi. The temperature and pressure relief valve may need replacing as well. An expert plumber can determine if this is necessary.
