Water Heaters Only, Inc San Diego replaced a 40 gallon leaking water heater at a single family residence with a new water heater of the same size.
Our complete installation included installing earthquake strapping and bracing per the state earthquake requirements, installing a new water shut off valve and hot and cold water lines, securing the vent., re-piping the gas line with a new flex line, a drip leg sediment trap and a shut off valve.
We also installed a drip pan with a drain line. We insulated the hot and cold water lines. Our technician ran the temperature/ pressure overflow pipe to an approved location and insulated the valve and piping.
Finally, we removed the old water heater and hauled it away for disposal. Our technician then lit the pilot on the water heater and made sure the burner turned on to heat the water.
While the water heater was heating up, he cleaned up the area around the water heater and packed up his tools. Finally, our technician went over all the aspects of the new water heater with the homeowner including how the unit operates, how our warranty works, why the WHO sticker on the water heater is so important and how long it will take for the unit to fully heat. A permit was obtained via the city and the inspection passed.
