When to Replace Your Hot Water Tank
In the Vancouver BC area we find most hot water tanks need replacing at the ten year mark. Some can last a little longer depending on how well maintained they were, but the most common time for an upgrade is 10 years.
A pan under your hot water tank is a good idea because when they do leak, it's never when you're standing there looking at it. The darn things could care less about your drywall when its time comes. Finding the telltale signs like rust or moisture around the outlets is almost as good, so when you do see something suspicious then you'll want to look at replacing the hot water tank
