Water Heater Leaking?

Any water leak can damage your floor, sub-floor, and even walls. A water heater leaking can be as bad as flood damage, or as subtle as a health hazard from mold and mildew. You might see a spray, drips, pooling water, or just rust-colored streaks. Leaks most commonly occur on the water inlet and outlet valves and connections, the relief valve, the drain valve, and the tank itself. A leaking tank can only be resolved with a new water heater installation.

If you notice any of the symptoms above, contact ASAP Drain Guys & Plumbing immediately.

Keep in mind that any leak will get worse over time. ASAP Drain Guys & Plumbing has experts specializing in locating and repairing water heater leaks.

Water Heater Repair

There are many problems besides water heaters leaking that will call for a water heater repair, although rust and corrosion are the primary problems. Water heaters should, in fact, have periodic maintenance. This includes checking safety features, draining and flushing the tank, and checking the protective anode rod. This guards against deposit build up that reduces efficiency and may clog pipes, as well as making sure the tank is protected against corrosion.

Gas heaters sometimes have trouble with the pilot light. Nowadays that means the pilot light itself plus an automatic-ignition circuit and its associated thermocouple. The exhaust vent often gets neglected, but it’s critical for safety (carbon monoxide emissions) as well as for efficient operation. The thermostat might also be faulty in both gas and electric heaters.

Water Heater Installation

Sometimes it’s simply better to just install a new water heater. Even good quality gas units only last about 10 years, and electric units about 15 years. Sizes range from 30 to 100 gallons, with 40 gallon tanks being most common and suitable for 2 and 2.5 bathroom homes. We’ll be happy to work out the right size for your home and family.

Our fleet of trucks are fully equipped for water heater installation, and we can usually get the job done in a single day.
