Why should I consider replacing my old water heater?

Why doesn’t my old water heater work as well as it used to?

My water just doesn’t get very hot anymore…and there’s not much of it. I don’t understand, what’s going on!

It’s actually pretty simple…

Water heater tanks fill up with sediment over a period of time just from heating the water. The sediment collects at the bottom of the tank, so it keeps the water heater from holding as much water and is a lot less efficient. Instead of getting 50 gallons of hot water, you may get 35 gallons of hot water after a period of six or seven years.
