Water heaters can leak due to a variety of reasons including open drain valve or corroded hot water tank and excessive water pressure. While some of these leaks are obvioius, some others remain hidden and often go unnoticed for a long time.
If left unaddressed, even a minor nuisance can not only cause total water heater failure but also lead to water damage such as ruined carpeting, flooring or wall.
Whatever the case may be, it is advisable for homeowners to enlist the services of a professional plumber to properly diagnose and remedy the issue as soon as possible.
We at Local Pro have extensive expertise and knowledge to deal with all type of leaks in conventional and tankless water heaters from every make and model.
Having spent years in the industry, our technicians know all the areas prone to developing leaks in both gas and electric water heaters and what it takes to fix them right the first time.
Some of the most common water heater leak problems we see include;
The drain valve may leak slowly if it isn’t watertight or if its seal has been affected by sediment buildup.
Call us for assistance. Our technicians will determine that whether the leak can be fixed by placing a bucket under the valve or the valve needs to be entirely replaced and work as necessary to fix it.
Here are some of the common tankless water heater leaks we fix.
A tankless water heater may develop a leak inside the heat exchanger when it fails to vent out exhaust gases properly. This leaking water may leave the entire system vulnerable to corrosion. Give us a call, and our technicians will find out the best solution to fix the problem and restore your system to its best shape.
Leakage in venting pipes and connections of your tankless water heater might occur due to improper installation. Lack of sufficient venting may lead to condensation inside the water heater, which may cause leakage in the tank. Persistent condensation can result in a complete water heater failure in worst-case scenarios.
Reach out to us to diagnose and fix the problem. We will repair the problem to bring your venting back to optimal working order so that no condensation goes inside the system.
Leakage in joints and valves of your tankless water heater may occur due to improver setting and loose connections. Let our technicians inspect and fix the problem.
We will restore all pipes, joints and valves to proper working order to remedy the leak and prevent the probability of any future leaks.
