You have sure signs of Water heater rusting out. I would say because of the age of your unit 10 years is pretty max and if not now inthe very near future. I would put a garden hose to waterheater hose bibb and try to drain and catch water and if ther is an abundance of red or dirty water I would consider replacement.

SOURCE: Is the American Standard G50T

Generally, they are a your normal low end hot water heater. I have seen American Standard units last up to 20 years (like mine) with not problems, and I have seen them not last three years before the tank ruptured.

We have more calls on the Rheem and Brandford Whites than American Standards as far an minor problems.

Pros: Cheap; reasonably reliable; parts readily available.
Cons: Not energy efficient; tank quality - flexible.

When mine goes would I replace it with another American Standard? No, I would install the Bosch tankless water heater.

Water heater makes loud noise when burner is on


I would check the metal door on the bottom near the burner, sometimes they come loose and vibrate. If not that then I would suspect the chimney liner inside the tank, I have seen them corrode and start vibrating when the gas is running

My water heater makes a loud popping noise. I drained the heater & it stopped for two days but has again started popping. It seems to pop when the hot water is turned on.

Pop off valve on gas water heater making racket. Can just the pop off valve be replaced?


Yes it can be replaced. This is a temperature/pressure relief valve and is the second most important safety device on your heater. They rarely make racket. Is it leaking? if so yes replace it. Water heaters should have a portion of water drained annually along with operating the relief valve. IF you raise the handle a few times, and it continues to leak, then it should be replaced. If you replace it be sure to replace it with EXACTLY the same temperature and pressure rating that is on it now. Allow the water heater to cool, and drain pressure before removing. If it is rumbling inside, you might have calcium deposits bouncing around in the bottom. Drain some water and see how it looks. (Often if you operate drain, and haven't in a long time it won't reseal)

Sounds like a squirrel inside water heater


Hi,
The noise is inherent in electric hot water heaters. It is the noise that the water makes when it is being heated by electric heating elements. Mineral buildup on the elements can make it worse, so changing the elements can help...but will not totally elimenate the noise. When I install a new tank and turn it on all I have to do is listen to it to see if it is working or not...even brand new will make a sound...it is the sound of hot water... :-)

My water heater have countinous loud sound?


There are several different things the sound could be. If it is a popping noise it could be from the sediment inside the water heater as it is heating. It could also be noise(bang) from the water pipes having excessive pressure. If the water heater is gas it could be the noise from the burner when in operation or gas regulator vibration. Need a better description of the noise to be more helpful.

Loud noises


did you size the gas line properly? sometimes if the gas pipe isn't sized properly it will cause some pretty loud wistling noises. also if you have something in the fan like bugs or lots of dust it will cause alot of problems with noises

I assume you are talking about an electric water heater. The normal life span of an electric water heater is up to 11 years. Before you replace it, try turning off the unit, turning off the water supply, and draining the tank of any built up rust and sediment. Refill the tank, and turn the power back on and see how it performs. If it is still acting up, look at a replacement. On a positive note, the new water heater should pay for itself in pretty short order due to better insulation saving energy (and replacing with a higher efficiency unit may qualify for a tax credit).
