Had to call a plumber at 18 months

Posted on May 11, 2021

We woke up to find a LARGE puddle of water in the floor around our water heater. Of course we are just outside the short 1 year warranty that Hughston Homes offers so we had to call in a plumber. $400 later, the plumber informs us that we needed an expansion tank on our water heater which should have been installed from day one. And we should have had a pan under the water heater which would have kept the water from running all over the floor. To top everything off, the instruction manual for the water heater says an expansion tank is required or the warranty is void. Great.
