How long does a 2004 John Wood water tank last?
Regardless of brand, tank water heater's tend to lose their efficiency's at around year eight. This is why rental programs are normally a ten-year period. The quality of the Phil Treyson before the water enters your tank also was a determining factor. The reason for this is settlement will build up faster at the bottom of your tank a lot quicker if the water is city water or if it comes from a well. You are asked to have your water heater contractor have a look at the text for you.
We have seen tanks upto 30 years old. We have also seen bursed or unsafe tanks that were only 5 years old. Generally speaking life expectancy of main line John Wood water tank is around 15 years. However, other factors like water quality, temperature and humidity of mechanical room, chimney/draft or vent length will also effect the life of water tank. Also keep in mind that some home insurance companies my not approve claims caused by tanks over 12 years old.
I hope this answered your question.
Thanks everyone for your replies - will have to look for a new water tank.
Water tanks should last 8-14 years depending on the quality of the water and the maintenance regiment. This number is based on our experiences in general. We have found them that are much older and ones with problems that are not even 8 years old.
