Water Heater Leaking in Your Chandler Home

Oct 08, 2015

Are you dealing with a leaking water heater? It can be frustrating trying to deal with these types of situations, but the key is to keep a level head and figure out what steps you can take to remedy the leak.

A proper diagnoses might just save you from replacing your water heater when it isn’t really needed. We’ve come up with a few key things to check out if your water heater is leaking in your Chandler, AZ home.

Is it the Pipes?

Your hot water heater will be connected to a hot and cold water pipe. The cold water comes in, gets heated and then goes out the hot water pipe. If the issue is a leaking pipe, that’s a good sign. It probably means you won’t have to replace your water heater. It may just require resealing the pipe connections or replacing a section of pipe.

If you are unsure how to go about this task, give Donley Service Center a call at 602-870-6840. We have a fully-staffed plumbing department that will handle all of your needs.

Does the Tank Have a Leak?

When the tank of your water heater is leaking, the only option is replacement. Here in the Chandler area, the municipal water is considered “hard.” Hard water has a higher mineral content than soft water and will corrode the tank over time. In fact, the average lifespan for a hot water heater is about eight years.

If your water heater has reached this point and you are noticing a small or large leak, it’s time to have it replaced. Donley Service Center can help you. We’ll install a new reliable and efficient water heater and get rid of the old one. Call 602-870-6840 to schedule an installation.

High Efficiency and Solar

If you need to replace your water heater, it’s a good time to consider solar. Here in Chandler, Arizona there’s no shortage of sunshine. Solar water heaters are effective, reliable and will save you some serious money on the electric bill.

We also stock highly efficient water heaters that will do the same job while using less power. The best way to determine which option might be best for you is to call Donley Service Center. Our experienced technicians are ready to help you. Whether your water heater is leaking or needs to be replaced, you can’t go wrong with Donley.
