If your water heater breaks down, you can get an expert to do water heater repair in Pleasanton, CA, but a little preventive maintenance should keep it flowing reliably and extend its life for years. Before starting, make sure to turn off the power (for electric water heaters) or the gas supply (for gas heaters).
Place a large bucket under the drain valve at the bottom of the water heater tank and turn the valve counterclockwise to release a couple of gallons of water into the bucket. It’s important to note that the water will be very hot, so take care not to burn yourself. Close the valve by turning it clockwise. If the valve will not open, contact a plumber for water heater repair.
To test the valve, place a bucket under the end of the discharge tube connected to the T&P valve. Lift the lever of the valve to open it manually. This releases hot water into the bucket. Warning — this water will be very hot. Let the water flow for a few seconds, then let go of the lever. Allow it to snap back, shutting off the water. If the T&P valve does not open and release water or if it leaks after the test, you will need water heater repair to replace the valve.
On a gas water heater, turn the temperature dial on the heater’s gas valve to 120° F.
For an electric water heater, you may need to remove a small metal panel covering the thermostat.
