Customer Reviews: Kansas City, KS

Water Heaters in Kansas City Kansas may have a very short tank life if there is a check valve in the water meter. Water meters installed between 2003-2015 most likely have check valves installed and will wreak havoc on your appliances and water heater. 

Water meters in Kansas City Kansas were installed with a check valve for several years throughout KCK. Recently, they have switched back to the meters that all for an open loop.
