Kenz Plumbing is fast, efficient, and reliable. That is why more homeowners call us to install their water heaters in Simi Valley. When you think about it; water heaters are one of the most important components for comfort at home. However, water heaters are located in difficult-to-access spaces, such as tight closets. Kenz Plumbing uses the best tools, equipment, and parts, such as premium water heater connectors that make it easy for us to work in tight spaces, easily connecting your new water heater with old pipes that may not line up correctly.
Choosing the Best Connectors for a Water Heater Installation
As trivial as it may sound, it is very important to use the best connectors that make our job easy, last a lifetime and don't leak. Kenz Plumbing can safely and efficiently install your electric and gas water heaters in Simi Valley. We have braided and corrugated water heater connectors with and without ball valves. Connectors with ball valves provide a shut off on the supply side of the water heater.
In cases where hard piping is not practical, we can use stainless steel corrugated connectors instead. We'll start by identifying the pipe material in your home and determine the distance between the hot and cold supply lines to your water heater. Then, using the right tools, we'll cut the pipe cleanly and squarely, making sure the pipe is free of scratches and debris. When handling copper pipes, we'll be sure to remove any sharp edges or burs.
Next, we'll use the appropriate tool to mark the insertion depth on the pipe. Don't worry! Kenz Plumbing knows the proper insertion depth for your fitting. We have connectors that use a gasket to seal onto the water heater pipe nipples, so thread tape is not required. We'll hand tighten the female connector onto the pipe nipple and then give a quarter turn with a wrench, being sure not to overtighten. Using the right connectors when installing a water heater is more important than you think.
