Tank life: The number below is the current average age of a water heater being replaced in Olathe, KS.

14 Years

Expansion Tanks: Thermal Expansion tanks are required on all closed loop systems in Olathe. A closed loop system is created when there is a check valve in the water supply line. Usually this will be in the form of a PRV, water softner, or backflow device. If a backflow device is installed for an irrigation system it doesn’t necessarily make it a closed loop system.

Water Pressure:The number below is the average water pressure provided by the city which has to be measured before the PRV.

76 psi
