Lake Mary Water Heater Leaks

Have you ever walked into your Lake Mary FL garage and found your floor wet and assumed it was the water heater. There are many reasons that your Lake Mary water heater can leak. The main one is a cracked tank, if the tank is cracked you will have to replace the heater. But there are many other spots that your Lake Mary water heater can be leaking from and only need a plumbing repair. Many times customers have called and wanted quotes for a water heater replacement and most plumbing companies will just quote for a replacement and replace the heater no matter what. This is why you need to be on top of what could possibly be leaking because knowledge is power and if you have the knowledge of what a minor plumbing leak is from your water heater you can save a ton of money.

First check the piping on top of the heater, this is the obvious step that most people do but this is a good reminder. Next, is the T&P valve and this is located on the top middle of the tank or the side of the water heater. These devices sometimes go bad and leak water and when they leak it can cause water to enter the garage. The next leak is the most common leak but the most customers don’t know to check this. They see water around the heater but no visible signs of a plumbing leak so they assume it is the heater  but 75% of the time the A/C unit is in the garage and most people don’t realize the drain for the A/C gets clogged. It will overflow and pool water around that area. This is a simple fix and should be done every six months to prevent. Get a shop vac and find the A/C drain outside to suck out the line and see if that solves the problem.

If you perform all these steps and there is still water around the heater then call a Lake Mary plumber to install a water heater. If you need a Lake Mary plumbing company call us at (407) 710-0210. We are Lake Mary Florida’s #1 plumber.
