Reason for Replacement
Water Pressure Inside
Water Pressure City
This water heater was under 100 psi of water pressure due to a failed Pressure Reducing Valve. Despite the high water pressure the tank did not ever leak. The owner of the tank decided that after 16 years it was time to get the tank replaced and have everything serviced.
The Pressure Reducing Valve was replaced and the water pressure was set to 75 psi. An expansion tank is not technically required in Leawood, but this neighborhood had a water pressure of 100 psi. Meaning that without a thermal expansion tank your water pressure would rise to 100 psi when the tank heats up. The expansion tank is a buffer to absorb the additional pressure that is created from the increase in water temperature.
