Water Heater Replacement Tips

Water Heater Replacement Tips

Water heater replacement is something that Leone Plumbing and Heating specializes in!  If you have a water heater in your home or place of business you know that it is a matter of time until you will need to replace it.  If you have a tank water heater, I wanted to give some tips on what to look for but also what to expect if you have Leone plumbers change-out your water heater. If your water heater tank is in the basement of your home, business, or garage always check the copper lines going into the tank.  If you see corrosion or water sitting on top of the inlets, this is a sign of a leak!  Also, check the bottom of your water heater monthly (especially if it is old) for rust, corrosion, or dripping water.  This tip is especially important because the bottom of the tank could bust open and leak up 75 gallons of water, depending on the size of your tank.  Not good!  All of these problems would usually lead to your water heater needing to be replaced. After you call or schedule a trained Rochester, NY Plumber, such as those at Leone Plumbing and Heating to replace your water heater, we would get approval from you to do the work.  Then our plumbers would start to drain the water heater so they can remove it.  After most of the water has been drained the plumbers would remove the old water heater and bring in the new one. As an additional feature, before setting the new tank, the plumber will set an aluminum or plastic drain pan in order to keep water from leaking.  After setting the drain pan the new water heater is lifted-up and set into place.  A new water shut-off valve is set on the copper supply lines and everything for the supply lines is welded together.  Water is added to the tank and after it is full, electricity is hooked up or gas.  The plumber would then turn the unit on and set the temperature at your preferred setting.  It takes a couple of hours for water to heat-up to the set temperature. I hope that these tips have helped you to be able to spot a leak and know what to expect when you have Leone Plumbing & Heating come out and replace your water heater.

Why Sewer Line Replacement Might Be Needed

 

Why Sewer Line Replacement Might Be Needed

This is something as a homeowner I hope I never have to do, and that is replace my sewer line.  I have actually had to replace several sewer lines when I did plumbing calls every day, and this is something that no one should have to go through. One of the main causes of having to replace a sewer line is having tree roots in the plumbing pipe, and this is when you need a 24 hour emergency plumber in Rochester, NY.  Your main drain line usually runs in the back yard out to the alley or septic tank.  If you have trees in your back yard and have problems with your sewer line backing up on a regular basis, you might have roots in your line.  Once roots have entered the pipe, they continue to grow and expand, exerting considerable pressure at the crack or joint. This increased pressure can cause the pipe to break or collapse, in which case it will need to be repaired or completely replaced. If left undisturbed, roots will completely fill the pipe with hair-like root masses. The root masses quickly become clogged with toilet tissue, grease and other debris flowing from your home to the main sewer. A complete blockage may occur if the roots are not removed and enough waste material accumulates. If you think some of the problems mentioned in this article are occurring at your home, schedule a plumber today.

Leone plumbing and heating is great! They have helped us with a variety of plumbing issues in our home, most recently renovating our shower. What I really appreciated the most is that they don't try to convince you that you need all the extra bells and whistles.They will tell you what needs to be done and fix it for a fair price. Highly recommend!

I made an appointment to have Leone come out to repair my toilet fill valve and shower spigot. They had some truck issues but Andy communicated timing to me as best he could. Jamison came out and knew right away what needed to be done to repair both problems and had both issues repaired in about an hour, including running out to grab a part and coming right back. Jamison was very helpful and professional. Would recommend to friends/family.
