At Rooter Hero Plumbing, we offer premium commercial and residential services for local California and Arizona area clients including water heater expansion tank installation, water heater repair and water heater replacement. If you are wondering whether a water heater expansion tank is necessary for you, then read below for some helpful information. 

Common Issues with Built Up Pressure Inside Your Water Heater Tank

The heating and cooling of the water inside your tank can cause a buildup of pressure. If an issue occurs, the excess pressure can push against the walls of your tank. Consistent pressure can severely damage the tank, and in some cases can even lead to an exploded tank. In order to circumvent such an issue, most water heater tanks have a pressure relief valve, which allows some of the water to drain out of the tank. However, these valves can become stuck, particularly on older models. It can also cause water to fall onto your floor, which can create long term water damage, mold growth and other hazards. 

Benefits of Installing a Water Heater Expansion Tank

An expansion tank provides an outlet for the overflow that will not damage your property. If expansion due to heating creates pressure, then the excess water will simply move to your expansion tank and will prevent over-pressurization. This can reduce the amount of stress placed on your water heater while also ensuring that your home or commercial building avoids any unnecessary repairs, replacements or renovation costs.

Proper installation is essential for expansion tanks. Mistakes made during the process could result in water damage and other complications down the road.
