Generally, most hot water systems manufacturers provide between a 7 – 10 year warranty guarantee on the popular hot water systems brands like;
- Rheem Hot Water Heaters
- Dux Hot Water Heaters
- Vulcan Hot Water Heaters
- Aquamax Hot Water Heaters
If your hot water system is more than 10 years old, you’re better off replacing it to get your hot water service back up and running as good as new.
