Water Heater Service, Repair and Replacement
Water Heater Service and Repair
The first thing you usually see with a water heater is a slow leak on top of the unit, or leaks coming from the bottom of the water heater. If the leak is coming from the top, there are a variety of different things it could be. There are 2 pipes coming from the top of the water heater that could be leaking, which is the cold water feed, and the hot water pipe that takes the hot water to the building or home. If the pipes are leaking then it may just be a pipe repair that needs to be taken care of quickly so that it doesn't multiply into more severe problems
Additionally, if the water heater is up to code, the Thermal Expansion tank which us usually blue or tan, can leak or become faulty. This would need to be replaced if you see a leak coming from a 1 gallon sized tank on top of the water heater connected to the piping since you typically can't repair a tank that is leaking.
Another potential problem with a water heater leaking could be the temperature and pressure relief valve that is usually connected to a pipe coming from the side towards the top of the water heater. This valve relieves the pressure inside the tank when the county water pressure is too high for the appliance. If you see this leaking, make sure you call a licensed plumber to come and diagnose since it could be a potentially problem. Preferrably, call Advanced Plumbing Service since we are experts in the field of water heaters.
If you see a leak coming from the bottom of the water heater, that is generally a water heater gone bad and you need to get it replaced as soon as possible. Especially if you have flooring that you don't want to be ruined wihin the next few days. Water and hardwood floors don't get along together, so you want to make that a priority to get serviced or replaced.
