Colorado Springs Water Heater Installation & Repair
A water heater is one of those home appliances you probably never think about, as long as it’s working. But when it’s not, you could be in for a nasty surprise (unless you really enjoy cold showers). Regularly scheduled water heater maintenance can save you a lot of time and money when it comes to repair. Water leaks caused by a faulty water heater can wreak havoc on a home or business.
The homeowner can perform simple, routine water heater maintenance, but to elicit the best possible performance and get the longest life from your water heater, it is best to schedule your water heater maintenance, repair, and installation with an experienced, professional team like Leo’s Sewer and Drain. We have the experience, skill, tools, and technology to handle all your plumbing problems.
In the event of an emergency leak, there is one thing you can and should do while waiting for your plumber to arrive, and that is to turn the water off to prevent flooding, if possible. There is a valve on the pipe that brings cold water into the water heater, which is vertical when it is open, allowing water to enter the tank. To turn the water off, simply turn the handle on the valve to a horizontal position, perpendicular to the pipe, and water will stop coming into the tank. This will limit the amount of water that can leak out, and possibly cause damage.
