Leaking water heaters are a common problem that many homeowners often don’t think about. Due to water heaters usually being located somewhere inside the home that people rarely visit, it can easily fall into an “out of sight, out of mind” problem. Water leaks could be pooling up behind the scenes, and unless the homeowner notices there is a problem, serious damage could occur.
Plumbing Experts was recently called due to a residence in Boca Raton, Florida where the 75-gallon natural gas water heater was leaking. The unit was located in the garage, and the homeowner noticed wet spots on the floor and brown spots on the wall around the tank. Our Plumber removed the unit as a replacement was needed, cleaned up the damage and installed a brand-new unit.
In cases like this where replacement is necessary, Plumbing Experts will help you determine the best water heater option for your home. Whether a tankless water heater or traditional water heater is right for you, we will walk you through the pros and cons of both to help you make the most informed decision.
