“My Hot Water Tank is Leaking! What do I do?”

Follow these 5 steps to prevent further issues until your Balcaen & Sons serviceman arrives.


1. Turn the unit off

If you have a gas heater, turn your thermostat dial to OFF. If your water heater is electric, you’ll have to turn the power off at the breaker.


2. Shut off the water to stop the leak

The cold water shut-off valve is typically located to the right of your water heater. Turn it to the right.


3. Drain the water heater

Locate the drain valve on your water heater and attach a garden hose to it. Place the end of the hose over the floor drain or sum pit, and then open the drain valve – be careful: the water might be hot!


4. Break the vacuum

There may not be a lot of water draining from the valve – this is typical. Open a hot water faucet in your home and leave it open until the tank is drained (up to 1 hour). Then, you can close both the drain valve and the hot water faucet.


5. Call Balcaen & Sons!

We’re at your service 24/7 for emergency repairs!
