Question about Rheem 40 GAL ELEC TALL Water Heater 6YR SC 82VH402
Water heaters will fill up with sediment,because of this they have a less than 10 year lifespan.As they fill with sediment you have less room for water and it's harder to heat up.Try and flush the heater by opening the over flow valve for a couple of minutes.Open the drain at the bottom too.
One thing,as with any build up,once cleaned you can develop a leak.The reason being that there had always been a leak it was only plugged up,and by cleaning you will sometimes find a leak that never was there before.That means the tank integrity is gone and will need replacement.
