This old AO Smith water heater was installed new with the house. Despite being under high water pressure the issue was actually related to a backdrafting water heater. We determined that a damper that controls the vent for the basement was causing negative pressure. We were able to identify the issue and correct the problem. A backdrafting water heater will have pilot issues and often shutdown. Due to the age of the tank it needed to be replaced.
The flue was redone to improve the draw. There was also a new PRV installed along with a thermal expansion tank. New shutoff for the poly line feeding the humidifier was also replaced. The flex gas supply line was replaced with iron pipe.

Chase is an expert in his field. I just had a good feeling about him from our initial conversation. Then during the install and when he was all complete he took time to explain everything to us and go over all the features of the new water heater. Chase clearly knows what he is doing. He stays on top of his industry and his craft and additional training to make sure he is the expert in his field. If you want the best experience with the best water heater guy in the industry with the best price in town then KC Water Heater and Chase are the folks you want to use! I'll be recommending Chase and KC Water Heater to everyone I know!
