Water around the heater

When you see that there is water around the water heater, it could mean that there could be a fracture or tiny leak in your tank. It is possible that when the metal heats up, there is expansion, which cause the fracture, causing the leak. And when the metal cools, leakage from the inner tank may come to a stop. This will lead to water around the heater rather than a constant leakage. It is recommended to go for a replacement rather than to find water heater repair in Singapore. But before any other action, ensure that the tank connections or fittings do not have any other leaks.
