Water Heaters

Water Heaters

An inspection of the water heater expansion tank should ensure that the tank is positioned high enough above the water heater that water will easily drain back down into the water heater tank. Additionally, the tank should be inspected for proper support and corrosion leakage. The prime positioning is near the water heater and it may be installed vertically, either above or below the horizontal supply pipe, but can also be positioned horizontally. Horizontally-hung tanks will need additional support to reduce the stress on the copper piping.
