One critical plumbing problem people experience is when the water heater breaks. It can be time-consuming and stressful to try and fix a problem with the water heater. Water heater leaks are stressful.In your mind, you begin trying to figure out how much the repairs will cost if you can afford it, and the immediate response is to think you are going to have to replace it.
While it is possible that a water heater replacement may be necessary, water leakage is not necessarily a death sentence. If you leak, there are some steps you can take before you panic. The first thing you need to do is turn off the power. Keeping the water on is dangerous. Next, make your way over to your water supply and turn it off. This keeps the leaking water from causing any damage. Because the tank is full of water, you should attach a hose to the valve and run it away from home (into a drain or away from your home). The next thing you can do is attempt to locate where the link is coming from. This will give you information when you do call the professionals to come in. The cause varies based on the location of the leak.
Water heaters naturally drain from the bottom. This is so the tank can be replaced or cleaned after draining the water. If you notice that there is moisture or dripping around the drain valve, it could be a sign that the drain valve is leaking. There is a pressure valve attached to a tube to direct water to the floor. The pressure relief valve is critical for safety. It relieves pressure and helps prevent the water heater from overheating. Pressure Relief Valve leaks can appear to be coming from the bottom of the tank because the tube is under the water heater. Check and make sure the thermostat setting is not too high.
There are times that the leak can come from the water heater itself. The water pressure in the tank can force even the smallest leak into a major problem. This is due to salt and chemical and can lead to corrosion inside the tank. The corrosion eventually causes small leaks that can become major issues over time. If you have experienced any issues with your water heater, TMZ plumbing provides a wide range of services and can address your water heater needs. Contact TMZ plumbing today for more information.
