The integrity of a water heater system lies not just in the main unit but in the synergy of its many parts working flawlessly together. This understanding is at the core of Emergency Plumbing Services’ (EPS) approach to addressing water heater issues. A recent project in San Diego exemplifies our comprehensive strategy towards water heater repair and replacement, ensuring every component functions perfectly to provide a lasting solution. Janis, a homeowner in the area, contacted us because her water heater was leaking. Our diagnostic process quickly identified the source of the leak. It revealed the need for a complete overhaul of the system, including replacing critical components that had worn out or were inadequately supporting the system’s functionality.

Our solution for Janis’s home was multifaceted and designed for durability and efficiency. We replaced her outdated 40–50-gallon water heater with a new, state-of-the-art 40-gallon Bradford White unit, known for its reliability and performance. Recognizing the importance of even the smallest parts in the overall system, we upgraded the shut-off valve to a more robust 1/4 turn valve and swapped the single-copper water heater supply line for a more flexible and durable supply flex line. Additionally, we installed a thermal expansion tank, an essential component that mitigates the risk of damage from excess water pressure by absorbing increased water volume. The final touch to this comprehensive upgrade was installing a gas sediment trap, a requirement not just for the system’s efficiency but also for compliance with manufacturer guidelines and building codes.

This project underscores EPS’s commitment to fixing the immediate problem and preventing future issues through meticulous attention to detail and the use of high-quality components. By tackling every aspect of the water heater’s system, from the main unit to the ancillary parts, we ensure that Janis’s new water heater will deliver optimal performance and reliability for years. Our dedicated team’s expertise in proper installation, replacement, and repair guarantees that our clients won’t face repeated issues or inefficiencies. For those concerned about the state of their water heater or facing a leak, EPS offers a thorough inspection and diagnostic service to pinpoint problems and provide effective solutions.
