Is it Time to Replace my Water Heater

Some crazy stuff is going on in my life right now. First, my daughter had a small accident when she fell from the stairs at home (luckily nothing serious, but it made me think about the safety of our home twice), and now my water heater is acting up.

Before I am going to call any plumber, I want to read something about water heater replacement myself. I am sure that I am not going to be able to fix the problem on my own due to the fact that I am not a plumber myself, but at least I want to have some sort of knowledge about the topic to know more or less what is going on when the plumber finally comes to my house to inspect the water heater.

I decided to take the matter in my own hands and started reading about water heater replacement on the Internet. It did not take me that long to discover that an average water heater should last approximately 11 years. This is probably for how long I have had the heater in my bathroom. Right now, when I think about it, I might have had the water heater even for longer than that. It all makes sense now and I see why might current water heater might not be performing as good as it used to perform in the past. If the situation gets worse, all I am going to need to do is to replace my current water heater with a newer one. I am not afraid of such projects as I know that I am going to be happy with a new water heater that works perfectly. I already have some backup money on my bank account in case this is something that will need to be done. Probably my showers are going to be more enjoyable as well since I am one of those who like to take very warm or even hot showers in the evening before going to be.
