Water Heater Strapping

Members of the Golden Gate Chapter of the American Society of Home Inspectors (GGASHI) recently conducted a survey of water heaters and found that 52% of those surveyed were poorly strapped and vulnerable to toppling in the of event of an earthquake. This is a very significant figure given the large population in the Bay Area and the high number of homes and apartments with free-standing water heaters.
 
Please take a moment to review the video and press release by GGASHI. If you have any questions about the study, or if you would like to see statistics on other information gathered, please contact Max Curtis, GGASHI Public Relations Chair at max@maxinspect.com .
