What Does a Delaware County Plumber Do When Your Water Heater Is Leaking?
When you see a puddle of water near your tank, try your best to locate the source. The leak may be coming from the pipes, valves, or the tank itself. Next, shut off the power source. If you use gas, locate your thermostat and turn the dial off or the pilot to shut down. For electric systems, your breaker panel should have a switch for your water heater. Note: you must have all power off before any water heater repairs can begin.
Make sure you shut off your water supply to protect your home. At the very least, turn the valve above the tank. You can also stop the water supply to your whole property by locating the red handled valve (found near the cold water pipe) and turning it off, If you can’t find the valve connected to a pipe entering your house, your main valve may be on the outside.
You need to get the tank fixed fast or replaced ASAP. So contact a professional plumber in your area.

Whomever you choose, make sure the plumber is honest, reputable, and dependable.
