Having no hot water in colder months is a nightmare.
And that nightmare can come true so easily if an amateur botched one thing or another during the water heater installation. Such mistake can lead to a potential disaster, and leave you stranded without any hot water at a given moment.
Precautions To Be Taken During Water Installation Process:
Installation of water heater is a delicate and straight forward process. First off, you need to make sure that all the safety measures are being taken.
• For example, the location where the water heater is to be installed should be ventilated properly.
• If you are living in a place that frequently gets hit by earthquake, you might want to consider investing into special restraints for the water heater to prevent any damage from seismic activity. Not only that, the heaters and tanks should be anchored down to prevent any explosion or fire when the debris falls.
• Installing a drip line, pan and sediments can protect the machine.
• Scheduling the water turn off regularly can help in the maintenance.
• Mount a pressure regulating valve is a good idea when your home’s water pressure is above 80 psi.
What Happens During The Water Heater Installation?
In The Case Of New Installation:
Turning Off The Water:
Before anything can happen, the water is turned off from the main supply to avoid any water related mishap. Otherwise, your house will be flooded while the connections are being made.
The next thing to be done is to make attachments of the cold and hot water lines to ensure the passage of both temperature water.
Filing The Tank:
Next step on the list is to fill up the water tank and check for any potential water leakage so that it would be caught early.
Making Connections, Again:
But this time, the tank has to be connected with the power supply. If it is gas water heater, then the gas lines are connected with the tank along with the flue and the runoff tube.
Turning On The Tank:
Now its time to turn on the tank. All that is left is the relighting of pilot light, and you are finished.
And In The Case Of Replacement:
Actually, the process runs reverse from the new installation. First of all, the water is closed from the mains, then all the lines of hot and cold water along with the flue is disconnected with the tank. The gas line is also removed to separate the tank, and now, it’s time for draining the water from the tank. Now that everything is separated, the old water heater can be removed and replaced by the newer model. Another thing that differentiate both processes is that in the case of replacement, the plumber has to keep an eye out for any old malfunctioning part that might need replacement too, or simple repair.
