What Cypress Homeowners Can Do in an Emergency Water Heater Repair Situation
For electric water heaters that are not producing hot water, initially look to find out if the fuse in the breaker box is tripped. When it is not, we advise simply turning the power off and giving us a call to come take a look at the heater. For gas water heaters not making hot water, first look and see if the pilot light remains lit. In case it is not, attempt relighting it.
We do not advise trying to take care of a water heater if one is not sure what one should do! It is a very hazardous appliance. We are extremely trained with carrying out water heater repairs. If one was to attempt any repairs, definitely turn the power off for an electric water heater and switch off the gas for gas water heaters to start with!
If perhaps the water heater storage tank springs a leak, shut the water off going to the storage tank. It may be a gate-style valve or a ball-style stuff off valve. The ball-style will turn 180 degrees and a gate-style needs to be turned clockwise until it will not turn anymore. Sometimes these valves break. holds true, or if it will not turn, turn off the water to our home. If you succeed in getting the water valve off, it still may leak and not wishing to have all the water contents of the tank flood the location the water heater is located in, attach a garden hose to the drain at the bottom of the storage tank and run it to either a rain gutter drain or a sink to clear the tank when possible. If there is extreme rust and sediment inside the water heater it can hurt the grass in the yard or stain a concrete driveway or sidewalk. When the water is effectively turned off and being drained if need be, shut the power or gas off to the heater.
If the odor of gas is present, turn the gas off leading to the water heater instantly! Next, give us a call. If the smell of gas is still evident as soon as the gas line is shut off, call the gas company too to aid in seeing where the gas leak is originating from.
