Seeing the smile on someone’s face is an powerful reward for all people in our team.

In reality being a rockstar plumber is a matter of hard work: it takes discipline and determination to improve your skills on a regular basis and serve your customers better and better. This is something we are not afraid of. It’s rather the opposite – it’s something we really enjoy.

Here are the steps we usually go through when we need to inspect and repair a water heater in Poway or any other place in the county:


Shut the water off

There’s nothing else to do if the water is not shut off. In case of emergency we would sometimes ask you to do it yourself until we arrive. This usually happens when you experience a serious leak.


Turn the power off

We use the breaker for that or the power shut off.


Let it drain

Then we would just blow off a valve and let it drain all the water. It takes a little while, but it’s the way it is.


Disconnecting lines and wires

While the water is still draining, we disconnect the lines for hot & cold water in and hot water out. Once disconnected, air is flowing in and this helps the water drain faster. We also access the the electric wires inside the unit and disconnect them too.

We also remove the connection lines and basically we are ready to remove the old water heater.

Hint: We highly recommend using a pan – it might save you extra money and prevents damage caused by leaking. To learn more about pans you can read our blog post on water heater pans.

When it’s all fixed we compile everything back the way it was.


Fill in the tank with water

Very important step. Skipping this may burn elements inside if you turn it on. Leaving a faucet in the kitchen or the bathroom with hot water turned on allows helps bleeding the air out of the tank. We need to end up with a water heater completely filled in with water.


These are basic steps with general instructions on what’s the usual flow when repairing a water heater. There are many specific actions that are not included in the article. Please do not do it yourself and always use a licensed plumber like VLN Water Heaters to get the job done for you.
