Plumbers Avoid DIY Mistakes
A professional plumber, like ours, know how to install water heaters to maximize safety and to comply
with the code. The image shown on this page is of a gas water heater that a DIYer placed on a shelf.
There wasn’t enough ventilation around the water heater to maximize safety for the people in the dwelling and the install did not comply with the local codes so we were called in to reinstall it so that it was safer for everyone and so that it would meet the code when the inspector came to see if it was in compliance.
We’ve also been called in to fix installs where the water heater was installed to close to the electric breaker box. In some of these cases, water leaking out of the right part of the heater or the pipe leading to or from it could have sprayed water directly onto the breaker box for the dwelling which could have been disastrous.
The bottom line is that you must know and comply with all local building codes so that your water and electrical systems are as safe as possible.
