Shut off Valves – Shut off valves are an extremely important part of your homes plumbing system. Quick Water Heater Company can replace and repair all shut off valves, including gate valves (garden hose valve)
and ball valves. We always check to make sure that all your shut off valves are working properly. We will generally encourage our customers to change a damaged main shut off valve. We also change the shut off valve to the water heater. With out a functioning shut off valve you cannot shut your water off to your home nor can you isolate a leaking appliance. Changing your shut off valves ensures that if you have a problem in the future, you can easily prevent flood damage.
Pressure Regulators – Pressure regulators are an extremely important part of your homes plumbing system. A pressure regulator is placed in-between your home and the city water coming from the curb. A pressure regulator controls the water pressure that can enter your house. For example, the city water pressure can reach 120 pounds per square inch. The pipes and appliances in your home require 60 pounds per square inch (PSI). If your home did not have a regulator constantly absorbing the city water spikes, your
appliances will be damaged. For example, a water heater that has 110 PSI entering the tank will have less than half of it’s normal operating life. This is because the water is pushing on all the valves and entry points
that are designed to operate at 60 PSI. Basically it’s like blowing a balloon up until it pops. High pressure can also lead to pipe bursts in the walls and slab. Quick Water Heater Company will always test your pressure regulator and make sure that it works properly.
Water Heater Stands – Water heater stands are used when a water heater is located in the garage. According to the uniform plumbing code, a water heater installed in a garage must be installed 18 inches above the garage floor. This code is in place to ensure that if combustible gases collect near the garage floor, the pilot light from the water heater will not ignite the gasses. Quick Water Heater will always inspect your stand and make sure that it is structurally sound. Quick Water Heater Company can replace the water heater stand
Earth Quake Straps AKA Seismic Straps – Earth quake straps are designed to hold your water heater in place if an earthquake happens. If your water heater were to fall over in an earthquake it could cause the cold water input line to break and flood your home. In addition, the gas line could break and leak gas into your home. This could cause an explosion. As you can see, keeping your water heater firmly planted in place is critical if an earthquake happens. We will inspect your earth quake straps to make sure they are up
to code and mounted firmly in a wall beam.
Water Heater Supply Lines – Water heater supply lines are usually made of flexible copper tubing. These supply lines allow a water heater to be quickly removed from the plumbing system. Without proper supply lines, water heaters can only be removed by a plumber. Quick Water Heater Company will almost always change your supply lines. Changing the supply lines ensures that your water heater will have the longest life possible.
Gas Water Heater Venting – Gas water heaters have an exhaust vent that allows burned gasses and hot air to escape through the roof of your home. When replacing a water heater, the venting system may need to be replaced or modified to accommodate your new water heater. We will always inspect your venting system and repair or replace any existing problems. Gas venting is almost always replaced when installing a tankless water heater.
Temperature and Pressure Release Valve AKA T&P Valve – The T&P valve is by far the most important feature of your water heater. The T&P valve has two very important functions. One is to prevent your water heater from over heating. The second is to prevent pressure build up. If your water heater reaches 210 degrees, the valve will open up and release hot water. If the internal pressure in the water heater reaches more than 150 psi, the valve will open and release the excess pressure.
Gas supply line – Gas lines are usually flexible hoses that connect your homes gas system to your water heater. Gas lines can become damaged over time and may need to be replaced. Quick Water Heater Company will inspect and replace any damaged gas supply lines.
Gas Shut Off Valves – Gas shut off valves are mounted on your homes gas supply system. These valves are very important and should be in 100% working condition. Quick Water Heater Company will inspect and replace any valve that is not in 100% working condition.
