Seeing the smile on your customer’s face is our fuel. In fact 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 replace a water heater in Solana beach or any other place in the county:
Shutting the water off
As always we would start with shutting the water 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.
Turning the power off
Next, we need to shut the power off. We do that at the breaker or use 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.
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.
Placing the new water heater
Control panels need to be put on the front side. Once it’s placed we connect the water lines and the electric lines.
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 replacing 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.
