Water Heater Leak Repairs

Call the Experts at Dupree Plumbing!

You depend on your water heater to feed your home a supply of hot water for bathing, washing, cooking, and other applications. But when your water heater springs a leak, your home could be at risk for a disaster. Even a small leak in your water heater could damage the area around it, leading to structural rot and mold growth, while larger leaks could cause flooding in your home. When your water heater has sprung a leak, you need to act quickly and call a Marietta plumber who can get it fixed and make your home safe again.

At Dupree Plumbing, we’ve served our community for more than 60 years, and we treat your emergency service call as our emergency.

My Water Heater is Leaking; What Should I Do?

If your water heater is leaking, don’t hesitate to call us. If the leak is a slow drip, then you may be able to fix your heater. However, if the leak is a steady stream down into your drain pan, you may want to shut off your water supply and drain your tank until a technician can arrive to inspect it. Shut off your cold water supply (usually found near the top of the tank), turn on a hot water tap somewhere in your home, then connect a garden hose to your tank and place the other end outside or in a large bucket. Open the pressure release valve, and then open the drainage spigot to allow the water in the tank to drain out.

Some common reasons water heaters start to leak include:

  • Too much pressure inside the tank/faulty pressure release valve
  • Tank age
  • Faulty seals around heating elements
  • Sediment buildup in the bottom of the tank

Water Heater Replacements

While some small water heater leaks can be repaired, most major leaks will necessitate the total replacement of your water heater. Fixing larger leaks usually creates a weak spot in your tank that’s only prone to breaking again, and sometimes the tank itself isn’t even accessible to the point where the leak can be repaired. When this is the case, our plumbers will let you know and offer to replace your system with a high-quality, energy-efficient model that can save you money on utility bills and provide your home with the warm water you need.

Tankless Leak Repairs

Tankless water heaters are becoming popular home upgrades because they continuously supply hot water as you need it without the need for a large storage tank. While tankless systems require very little maintenance and have longer lifespans than tank-based systems, they are not immune from leaks. Our technicians have the experience to find these leaks and get them fixed properly.
