Like other appliances, a gas water heater has a limited lifespan; usually anywhere from 8 to 12 years. Over time, sediment inside the tank starts to break down the interior of the water tank and rust starts to form. This rust then starts slowly eating away at the tank walls until a leak develops. When an internal leak occurs due to corrosion and deterioration, replacing the water heater with a new one is really the only option.
If your water heater is over 10 years old, it’s often best to simply replace it than put more money into repairs and then have it fail a couple years later. While water heater replacement can be done yourself, it’s highly recommended to let a professional do the job!
