Reason for Replacement
Water Pressure Inside
Another backdrafting water heater in Western Shawnee. The top of the tank was a sign that there was low levels of backdrafting. The backdrafting is worse in these homes when the vents for the basement are left closed and air cannot be brought down into the house. Aside from the tank leaking there was a separate plumbing leak in another part of the house a few weeks prior. The water pressure was checked and initially ready 60 psi. With the tank off the water pressure slowly crept up beyond 80 which indicated a bad PRV.
The PRV was replaced as well as the thermal expansion tank. The PRV was also moved up above the spigot to allow the ability to monitor the incoming water pressure. New shutoff installed for water heater and humidifier.
