A water boiler, particularly an electric model is quite a simple device. The water is warmed up by a few electric resistance components that spread from the lateral of the tank into the middle of the water. Our London plumbing professionals can offer proper installation for your water heater, starting with replacing the old tank, using also the producer’s instructions step by step.
Recommendations for a proper water heater installation from our plumber in London
Our team in London will check the work by filling the boiler with water and making sure that there are no drips in your plumbing work. Then they will close the drain faucet before turning the water on. After the tank is full, the plumber will turn on the power to the heating components. As a piece of advice, don’t turn on the elements before the tank is full of water because they will be damaged and will need to be changed.
