ASAP Drain Guys and Plumbing was called out to investigate leak from what appeared to be the top of a 75 gallon water heater. The customer was interested in having a tankless water heater installed. After receiving approval on the bid, ASAP began by draining the existing 75 gallon water heater and disassembling the flex lines, earthquake straps, existing recirculation line and pump and gas flex line.
ASAP proceeded to install new brackets for the new tankless water heater. A Navien 240-A tankless water heater was mounted that included a recirculation pump. ASAP installed new isolation valves on hot and cold side of tankless water heater for future maintenance. On the second day, the customer called back to mention the wait time for hot water to get to the farthest bathroom was taking too long. ASAP returned to complete diagnostic tests on the unit. After testing, ASAP found that the existing recirculation line was abandoned. ASAP turned off water to the home and reconfigured the recirculation line going to the tankless with a new check valve. New hot and cold angle stops were replaced underneath the upstairs bathroom along side a Navien Comfort valve. Navien tankless water heater was reprogrammed and tested for proper function. Customer and technician were both satisfied with the completed work.
