When a water heater bursts it can happen very suddenly or leak slowly over the course of time. A sudden burst can lead to a large amount of water flooding your home and may not be contained to just the area near the water heater. For water heaters on higher floors, a water heater burst may even damage the floors beneath it. Sometimes, water heaters don’t burst, but rather they leak slowly, over the course of time. You may notice small water spots or mold growth around your water heater, possibly even water spots below it, if the water heater is on an upper floor. Once you see these signs, the water damage from the broken water heater has already spread and should be repaired as quickly as possible.
