2016 Water Heater Inspection

Tiara Tower Update

In 2015, Tiara Towers experienced four water heaters failures. As experienced many times in prior years, the resulting water damages proved inconvenient and costly to the owners and the association. Most water heaters start to fail after 10+ years of service. To identify potential problems, the BOD has arranged for inspection of water heaters by a qualified plumber. An Elliot Merrill representative and a member of the maintenance committee will accompany the inspector. A letter will be sent to owners regarding the inspection's findings for their unit.

During the inspection, the plumber will also check the toilet bowls for any issues and identify or replace defective flappers.
