leaking water heaters
New AO Smith GCG 50 401 propane water heater installed. There were two major things we found on this job. The first was a gas leak on the line to the furnace. This was caught and repaired. The second issue was a loose flue pipe which could cause carbon monoxide to dump into the house.

Smart Water Heater
AO Smith water heater installed in this Merriam home. The water pressure was 100 psi so we installed a PRV to lower it to 70 psi. There was also an issue with an outside hosebibb which we were able to fix. When the water was turned back on one of the faucets started to leak. We replaced a seal inside the faucet free of charge to the HO.
