Our Dunwoody Water Heater Replacement Expertise
The first step to water heater repair is always to turn off the water and gas supply to the water heater. The shutoff valve should be turned quarter of a turn in order to be at a right angle to the pipe. You should also turn off the water supply then open the faucets to clear the tank of any remaining water.
To make sure the drainage is complete, and this step is essential, connect a garden hose to the drain valve in order to drain the tank. If the water heater was recently on or hasn’t been disconnected from the gas for long, then the water will be scalding hot.
In order to completely remove the old water heater, the vent pipe is unscrewed from the vent hood and then the hot and cold water lines are cut. Once this is done, the old water heater will no longer be connected to any pipes or tubes and can be removed.
Water Heater Installation Basics
The first step in installing a new water heater is to attach the relief valve. Wrap the threads of the temperature and pressure relief valve with a Teflon tape then attach it firmly to the tank with a pipe wrench. Once this is done, attach a copper discharge pipe.
Next up is attaching the pipe assemblies and water lines. Put the new water heater in place of the old and reconnect the cold and hot water tubes you previously cut and detached while removing the old heater. Reconnect the vent and reattach the gas line in order to finish the job.
Once these are done and everything is in place, you should check the connections for leaks. Apply a mixture of dishwasher liquid and water over the connections and tubes. If you see bubbles then there’s a leak and you should call a plumber to come locate and fix the problem.
