A water heater can cause major damage. When it develops a leak, it may not come rushing out all at once, most of the time it is a small leak that may go unnoticed for many days. This small leak can turn into a total tank blow out causing major damage to your home or business. The heating element can stick on and boil the water inside of the water heater raising the pressure inside of the tank to extremely dangerous levels which should cause the relief valve to shoot out hot scalding water. Even worse is if the relief valve does not activate and the pressure goes so high that the water heater explodes which of course can cause severe injury and certainly substantial damage to your building.
