Feedback Old Water heater was a good one. Lasted a long time. However, the water heater used a cheap plastic part instead of a brass one, and that lead to its failure. Why do manufacturers try to save a nickel? Stupid.

Feedback I bought the house about a year ago. The inspector said I will probably need to replace the heater within the next few years. Sure enough, he was wright. I am glad it lasted me the year. 16-years is a pretty good lifespan for a water heater.

State Water Heater repair in Olathe Kansas
AO Smith 66213 Olathe, KS
New AO Smith water heater installed and section of the flue replaced. The tank that we originally planned to install had a small dent in the side so we pulled another tank off the truck and swapped it out. One of the advantages to having 4-5 tanks on the truck at all times.

Instead of repairing an 11 year old water heater we replaced it with a Bradford White. The BW is the best option for this situation because there is a dryer only a few feet away from the water heater. The link from the dryer likely attributed to the problems with the State water heater. A thermal expansion tank was also installed as well as an isolation valve.

The shutoff valve on the incoming gas line had an older style valve that requires two wrenches to open and close. A new style of shutoff was installed to increased safety.
