Water Heater installed 66206
We discussed the needs with the client and decided that they would be better off with only one 50 gallon tank opposed to two separate tanks. Upon installing the new water heater we found a baseball size hole in the backside of the flue that was not visible unless the flue was taken apart. These water heaters were almost certainly dumping Carbon Monoxide inside of this families home. We replaced the entire section of flue and installed a PRV.

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.

Install new 50 gallon. This tank was slightly leaning but in order to level the tank you usually end up bypassing the pre filter for the tank.
