If it’s the middle of summer and you’ve just been outside, then there is no better feeling in the world than a nice, cold shower–especially if your outdoor activities included any kind of exercise.
However, being surprised by a cold shower when you were expecting a hot or at least warm one is another story entirely.

Of course, we don’t want you to wait around for this unpleasant surprise before starting to shop for a new water heater. We think it would be nice if you knew with plenty of warning that your water heater is starting to fail, so you can replace it sooner rather than later. The good news is, there are actually plenty of symptoms you can watch out for to get this prior warning. Read on to learn what they are.
