There’s nothing more frustrating than turning on the hot water to wash your hands or take a shower/bath and only cold water comes from the tap no matter how long you wait for it to heat up. Hot water is one of those things that we take for granted. In essence, when we turn on the tap, we expect it to work. It’s just like flipping the light switch and expecting the lights to go on. When it doesn’t, property owners tend to panic. Yet, there are reasons as to why your hot water isn’t working. For example, you may have a water leak.

Hot water needs to spend some time in your water heater before it actually reaches the taps, showerheads, and tub faucets. In essence, your water heater takes the cold water that enters into your property from the city/town or a well and heats it up prior to distributing the hot water to the plumbing fixtures. If your water heater is leaking it simply cannot fill with water. In essence, the water heater doesn’t have any or enough water to heat. That means you need to have your water heater repaired or replaced by a reputable plumbing company.

So, how can you tell if your water heating is leaking? It’s actually quite obvious. The area around the water heater will be wet. Chances are there will be water puddles on the floor.
