Weil-McLain Indirect Water Heater Leaking

Weil-McLain Indirect Water Heaters are a great accessory to your home or business’s hydronic heating system. Unfortunately they do, like all the equipment in your boiler room, have a limited life span and will need to be replaced at some point.  

If your Weil-McLain Indirect Hot Water Heater is leaking water, and it has been determined that it is the tank and not any of the connecting pipe, it will need to be replaced as there is no repairing it. The shell is corroded and beyond help.

JW Brian Mechanical  has years of experience installing and replacing Weil-McLain Indirect Water Heaters. Call us today for a professional and reasonably priced installation.

What to Look For in a Good Plumber or Plumbing Contractor in Edmonton? Plumbing is a compulsory trade, meaning the only people allowed to work in this trade, by law, are either Certified Journeyman or Registered Apprentices.
