Eventually, it may become time to replace your water heater. If your current one begins to act up by needing repairs all the time, or if you are ready to upgrade to a better model that could help save you money on your energy bill, then knowing how to do your own water heater replacement can be very helpful. In this video, you will learn how to do your own replacement from start to finish so that you can easily follow along and have a smooth experience.
The first thing you need to do is drain the water out of your old water heater. This will make it possible to remove the unit itself because the water inside of it will make it very heavy and impossible to move.
Draining the water also ensures that you do not end up with a flood in your utility room. The video will explain the problems with this particular unit so that in case you run into a similar issue you will know what to do. With the old unit removed, you can then install the new one.
