As homeowners, we are constantly finding ourselves faced with mechanical, electrical and other household problems. Being able to identify problems early on is a surefire way of avoiding costly repairs and other harmful outcomes. Your hot water heater is one such appliance that can present with problems requiring immediate attention. One such problem is that of a gas leak. It can be somewhat difficult to identify a leak which is why the dedicated team here at Steve Mull Plumbing wants to take this time to offer some tips on how to spot a leak in your hot water heater.
HOW TO SPOT A GAS LEAK IN YOUR WATER HEATER
One of the simplest and most practical tools to use for spotting a gas leak is a portable gas leak detector. Installing one such detector in your home provides you with not only safety but peace of mind knowing that should a leak occur; you will be in the know. The detector is such a reliable and effective device and is available for purchase at nearly any department or hardware store. Gas detectors come in a wide range of sizes which impacts the price of the product. When installing your detector be sure to follow all the installation instructions carefully to ensure that test result readings you get will be accurate at all times.
If you are unable to purchase a leak detector you can take a few moments to identify whether or not there is a gas leak in your hot water heater. Simply stand alongside the heater and listen for a quiet hissing sound. If you hear a hissing sound, then chances are you have a leak. Immediately reach out to the team here at Steve Mull Plumbing and let our experienced team of specialists identify, confirm and resolve the issue at hand.
