Common Water Heater Problems
If you notice your water heater is leaking, shut off your home’s water valve. It’s normally placed in your basement, close to your furnace or water heater, or underneath your kitchen sink.
Then call Sunbeam Service Experts at 716-427-6807 without delay. Even a minor leak can cause major damage to your home.
A leaky tank may be indicating you need to replace your water heater.
