Your water heater is one of the most major components of your home plumbing system.
Tankless water heaters heat water only when there is a demand, they do not store water, and they supply an endless amount of hot water.
Your water heater provides the hot water to your entire home and is "on-duty" 24/7 night and day regardless if you are home or not. Due to this fact, it is inevitable that eventually it will be time to replace it.
The average life expectancy of a standard tank type water heater, electric or gas, is 10 years. If your water heater is 10 years old or older, it is typically recommended to replace it vs. attempting to repair it due to the fact that the next time it gives you trouble, it will have likely reached a point of being beyond repaire, and a new water heater installation will be necessary.
Typically at this point it will have already busted and will have already leaked water all over your new floor. So as a general rule, replacement is always the best option for a water heater 10 years old or older.
