What To Do If Your Water Heater Is Leaking

If you notice any of these things, the best thing to do is shut off the water to the water heater. If you look at the top of the water heater there will be 2 water pipes going into the water heater. A cold pipe and a hot pipe. The cold pipe is on the right side of the water heater if you are facing it. Follow the pipe up from the water heater until you find a valve.

If the valve has a round handle: Turn the handle clockwise until it sotps

If the valve has a lever handle: Turn it 1/4 turn up or down (it may vary depending on how the valve is installed)

If you are fixing extra handy than you can start to drain the water heater of all the water. To do that hook up a garden hose to the drain valve located at the bottom of the water heater and run the garden hose to outside of the house. In most San Diego homes the water heater is typically located in the garage.

Open up a hot side faucet to allow air into the system to so the water heater does’t vapor lock. It will usually take 45 minutes to an hour to drain the water heater

Once you are done with those steps give us a call at (619) 838-1322 and we will come out right away to replace your water heater.
