Every Stanton homeowner needs a water heater to take a shower, wash their hands, brush their teeth, or anything else requiring hot water. Like most every component of a house, water heaters mess up from time to time, due to sediment buildup, broken valves, or excessive wear.
Before a plumber can fix a water heater, it needs to be drained. Nobody wants to pay plumbers to sit around and watch a water heater drain, so educate yourself of how to drain one properly in the event it malfunctions.
It's important to know where the water heater and breaker box as a renter or homeowner. If one doesn't know offhand, look near the washer and dryer, sinks, in closets, or outside in sheds. Both the breaker box and water heater should be easy to find.
The water valve is located on top of the water heater and should be turned off. The power for the water heater should be turned off. Be careful to flip the right switch, as electrocution is a legitimate, potentially fatal hazard.
First, select an area to dump the water far from the Stanton home. Roll the hose outside, rather than from the outside in. Connect one end of the hose to the drain valve and tighten snugly with a wrench. Turn the now-empty hot water handles of nearby faucets on as to allow the water heater to drain more quickly.
Open the drain valve and closely supervise the water flow. If there are any holes or loosely connected hoses, shut the drain valve on the water heater off immediately.
Having a hose long enough to comfortably stretch from the water heater to the predetermined dumping site is essential for a seamless process. If water ends up leaking in the house or causing damage to land or other property, serious liabilities can be incurred.
Flush the water heater with a few gallons of cold water to remove sediment from the bottom of the water heater. Disconnect the hose from the water heater and roll it outside, rather than from the outside-in to prevent water from leaking inside.

We are very satisfied with their service. Erick is very easy to deal with. He constantly update us regarding his arrival time. We had a floor leak to which he is supposed to detect the slab leak. At the moment he arrived at our place, my husband already found the leak so we don't need his services. We are willing to pay Erick a dispatch fee but he said don't worry about it. He also gave us some advises about how to deal with our leaks. He is very professional. Will definitely use Dial One Soneshine again. Han C.

Having moved to the OC recently, we were in need of an HVAC electrician. We found Dial One Sonshine online and called to set up an appointment. Dustin arrived on time and proceeded to replace our old thermostat with a new one. Once it was installed, he checked to see that everything (heat, A/C, fan only) worked properly. We were so happy with the results that we signed up for an annual checkup for the furnace (fall) and air conditioner (spring). Count us among the many satisfied customers Chuck R.
John was amazing and totally helped us out. Nicole was curtious when I called to make the appointment and very helpful. Melinda called us 30 minutes before John showed up, letting us know he was on his way. Perfect service! Michelle L
Shawn from Dial One was awesome as always, on time and always a pleasure to work with. If you need service for HVAC, your water heater, call Dial One. Branden B.
Dustin quickly diagnosed the problem, but, unfortunately the solution required an expensive induction motor replacement. Dustin located the correct part and promised to return that day. True to his word, he returned that day and replaced the faulty part. This is the second time I've used Dial One. Previously, Shawn had performed the service. In both cases the service guys were knowledgeable, polite to the point of solicitousness, and were genuinely interested in solving the problem and delivering top notch service. T. H.
Excellent service and very friendly, professional technician named Dustin. I would absolutely refer Dial One Sonshine to service your heating/air system! Thank you Deborah B.
I'll definitely be using Dial One Sonshine for future plumbing, Heating, A/C, and electrical needs in the future, and recommend you consider giving them a chance to earn your business as well! Don S.
