Can a Water Heater Really Explode?

Can a Water Heater Really Explode?

An Explosive True Story of a Water Heater

“My wife and I were relaxing in the living room watching TV when suddenly we heard a suspicious gurgling noise coming from another area of our house. The gurgling sound became increasingly louder and was then replaced with the sound of an explosion erupting. Immediately water came gushing through the door and into the living room. Our 15 year old water heater had exploded.

“I remembered the sound advice to “quickly turn off the main water valve of your home” when this sort of thing happens.  But where was it? WHERE WAS IT? It took me a few minutes to remember where it was and by that time water was up to our ankles and rapidly rising.

“We stood in the watery mess as it absorbed into our carpet and the sub-flooring underneath and evaluated the situation. We remembered that mold can begin to grow within 24 hours and our home could possibly become an unhealthy living environment. It’s 5:00 on a Friday evening. Who could we possibly call for help?”
