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.
I unfortunately had to contact Leone Plumbing due to an unknown leak. They came out right away and found the leak was actually a water line in my refrigerator. There was so much damage and I honestly had no clue what to do. Best part about Andy is that he was able to help out with everything. He explained the insurance process to me and talked to the adjusters for me. He kept me in the loop and he was able to turn my kitchen into a brand new one. I am more than happy with their service and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND their services. They are an honest hard working company that looks out for their customers.
Our submersible sump pump must have burned out a three or four weeks ago and didn't realize it until I noticed wet areas in cracks in the concrete floor in the unfinished area of our basement. I removed the cover of the pump well and the water was up to the top. We immediately started calling plumber companies and Leone was able to dispatch a plumber out the very day we called (4/14/2021). Mike was able to replace the old pump with a new Liberty Sump Pump. Once it was plumbed and a new check valve installed, the new pump worked great to to remove all the water in the well and additional incoming water from the drains. Nothing got wet in the basement. Mike did a great job quickly installing the new pump. Potential catastrophe averted!
So glad I found Leone. Jamison came out and had a look. He diagnosed the problem, explained exactly what needed to be done and how much it would cost. The work was done quickly and efficiently. I've never seen a more beautiful faucet. :) And I don't miss the fact that whenever I watered my yard I also watered the basement with the old leaking faucet.
I have already recommended them to my friends for work they need done. Thanks Leone!
