How old is the water heater? Here are the average lifespans of water heaters: Storage water heater's average lifespan: 10-15 years; Tankless water heater: 20+ years. Of course, if you've never had annual water heater maintenance, your water heater's life will be much lower than these averages. So, keep that in mind.
Agreed, I was lucky enough that when my 22 year old water heater started to fail recently it started to leak from the top of the tank in slow dribbles. Years ago we lived in an apartment where the water heater died catastrophically and flooded the bathroom (where it was located).
There is nothing wrong with it. It is a little slow to heat the water up, sometimes taking almost 5 minutes to provide hot water (early morning, colder nights) but other than that there is no problem. I hear that one should be replacing the water heaters every 20 years. Is this true? if it breaks, its going to flood the surrounding area.
I would like to know if there is a way to check a hot water heater to see if it needs replacing. Our hot water heater is 20 years old and I have been faithfully releasing the rusty water at the bottom twice a year. I was guaranteed this heater would last 20 years and my concern is I don't want the basement flooded again like 20 years ago.
Re: Hot Water Heater - 20 years old; Author: westchester plumber A 20 year old WH is very old. I suggest replacing it.

Anyway, you should consider replacing your water heater if it's about 6-12+ years old and when you start running out of hot water faster. However, age and lack of hot water aren't everything. You could have a 15-year-old water heater that works just fine and wouldn't need replacing.
The only failure point of an electric water heater that matters is its ability to hold water. If it leaks, buy a new one. Repair any electrical problems. New regulations Table shows improvement from .90-.92 to .95 for common 40 and 50 gallon units. It's not worth buying a new water heater unless the old one leaks.
At our last place (rental) the water heater sprung a leak and leaked through the floor into the lower tenant's apartment. Also ruined our floors. And that one was only 11 years old. The plumber for that one said that 10 years is generally the average lifespan of a water heater. I was shocked to learn how old ours is!

When I bought my first house many years ago it had a 20 year old water heater, the home inspector suggested I have the seller replace it. I ended up having the seller credit the cost of a new one.
