WARNING… IS YOUR HOT WATER TANK A TICKING BOMB?
DO YOU OWN A RHEEM, DUX, VULCAN, AQUAMAX OR SOLAR HART MAINS PRESSURE GAS, ELECTRIC OR SOLAR HOT WATER TANK?
HAVE YOU ACTIVATED THE TEMPERATURE PRESSURE RELIEF (SAFETY VALVE) VALVE EVERY 6 MONTHS, AND HAD IT INSPECTED EVERY 5 YEARS?
IF YOU ANSWERED “NO” YOU COULD BE IN DANGER OF A “PREMATURE HOT WATER TANK EXPLOSION”.
Do you know that the only thing preventing your hot water system from exploding is the tanks “TEMPERATURE PRESSURE RELIEF VALVE”, ( “THE SAFETY VALVE”).
The SAFETY VALVES job is to open and release steam and water when your tank is in an over temperature or over pressure situation.
Activating the SAFETY VALVE is not about “Flushing the tank” but flushing any debris out of the valve and the valves drain pipe.
Would you believe some of our customers, who HAVE NOT regularly activated the SAFETY VALVE, have unfortunately had their hot water tank rupture due to a single Wasp nest blocking the safety valve drain pipe.
The Wasp builds it’s little mud nest in the opening of the SAFETY VALVE drain pipe, and when the mud hardens if forms a solid plug effectively preventing any overflow water escaping from your hot water tank.
If you would like to see visual proof of a major hot water tank explosion caused by a faulty SAFETY VALVE please go to www.mythbusters.com and type in Hot water tank explosion. You will be amazed!
Things that contribute to your hot water tanks early demise are faulty thermostats, faulty pressure limiting valves, and corrosion caused by an inactive “Sacrificial Anode” (Your tanks rust protection device).
Combine these with a faulty SAFETY VALVE and you are definitely in danger of a Hot Water Tank Rupture or Explosion.
