Water Damage from Water heater Fort Myers
- Water heaters have a 100% failure rate. They will die, and leak. You do not want this going on in your attic.
- Water heaters are heavy. Getting a water heater up small attic pull down staircases is very difficult for plumbers. Getting them down once they are full of calcium is ridiculous.
- Water heaters can be noisy. As Water heaters get older, they can start knocking, rumbling, and otherwise making noise. Not cool if it is over your master bedroom.

Whether equipped with a conventional or a tankless water heater, both are susceptible to structural failure and may result in property damage caused by flooding.
Modern plumbing codes have attempted to address some of these issues by requiring a drain pan beneath conventional water heaters. However, leaks on or at water heaters are often pressurized and tend to spray beyond the area of the drain pan.
Even worse, depending upon the location of the heater, these leaks can go undetected until severe property damage occurs.
The best defense for such problems is routine inspection and maintenance. However, when faced with a leaking or flooding water heater:
Turn the water supply “off”.
It is imperative that the heater has a working shut off valve. Many years ago, the shutoff valves installed on water heaters were typical of the gate valve style. These valves are still very common today. Unfortunately, these valves can be very problematic and often do not fully close (see gate valves for more information). AWR recommends that gate valves always be replaced with ball valves for residential water heater applications.
Turn the power or gas “off” to the heater.
If the leak is coming from the tank or if the heater is to be replaced, drain the water heater (follow steps 1-8 in the Water Flushing Procedure. Upon draining, close the drain valve on the heater.
Address leaks as necessary.
Thoroughly remediate water spillages/floods.
