Why Water Heater Bursts?

Water Heater Bursts

The reasons behind a water heater burst are not clear always, however in general the basic reason that works behind the burst is rust corrosion within the tank. As water heaters are mostly made of steel and store large amounts of heated water, the rust at the fitting and seams eventually causes leaking and exploding the tank.

Minerals in your hard water also can cause a water heater to burst. Over the passage of time minerals create a layer at the bottom of the tank that acts as a barrier between the water and the burner preventing the thermostat to sense the temperature of water accurately. As a result, the burner runs longer and water becomes overheated and expanded in volume. It causes excessive internal pressure on the tank and leads to a water heater burst. A malfunctioning thermostat can cause an explosion too.

Effects of Water Heater Burst:

  • If rust corrosion is the reason behind the explosion, the water may absorb bacteria and rust. Therefore after the burst, your floor, walls can end up getting stained and hard to clean. Overflow of water can cause molds and mildews to grow if not cleaned soon.
  • As the water gets absorbed into the particle boards and swells, it has the potential of rotting the floor and decay.
  • Water seeping down the foundation can cause the foundation to be weakened and lead to other damages.
