A property management company called ASAP Drain Guys & Plumbing during after hours because a tenant could hear water running from the garage.
Upon investigation, ASAP found that water was leaking from unit 15. The tech entered the unit and found that the source of the leak was the bottom of the water heater tank. The property manager gave ASAP approval to replace the water heater.
The tech came back the following day. He turned off the water from the ball valve of the water heater but the water continued to leak. The property manager also gave approval to replace the ball valve. The tech turned off the water from the main line but the water continued to leak. He then had to shut down the water from the main in the street.
ASAP removed the two ball valves from the top of the water heater. The tech also noticed that the gas was off from the main so he removed the gas line and valve. The 30 gallon natural gas water heater was removed. The tech then installed two new ball valves, a new gas valve, a new 30 gallon natural gas water heater, two new water supply lines, a new sediment trap, and a new T & P line.
The new water heater was connected to the vent. The water was turned on and checked for leaks. There are no leaks at this time. The water heater was not turned on because it was turned off from the main, as shown in the picture.
ASAP also recommended that the main ball valve of the building be replaced because it is not turning off.
