Why you need an Aluminum Water Heater Drip Pan


Why:

The idea behind a water heater drip pan is to catch any leaks and to move the water to a drain, instead of all over your floor.

Recently a customer had an issue with their water heater leaking. They took the precaution to install a water heater drip pan for the water heater on their first floor, but it was a plastic pan and somehow the pan melted and cracked. Water leaked all over the first floor of their home.

Another problem we've run into is seeing drain pans installed, but the drain is capped. The drip pan is meant to temporarily contain and route the water, and is not equipped to hold all 40+ gallons of water in your tank.

We recommend aluminum drain pans:

  • Make sure that it is the correct diameter for your water heater
  • Make sure that the drip pan drain is piped to a floor drain.

Wednesday Product Feature: DXV 3D Printed Faucet

American Standard has always been an industry innovator, and it continues this tradition with the 3D printed faucet. The DVX faucets are the first to be printed in metal. The model shown here, has no piping, instead water travels through the 3D printed latticework. Beauty and innovation comes at a price though. When these faucets hit showroom floors expect the faucets to be listed between $12,000 - $20,000.

How its made:

  • Lasers are used to fuse powdered metal to shape
  • It takes about 24 hours to 3D print each faucet
  • The printed faucet requires hand finishing, and is put through a butlers finishing process 
  • Want more details? Check out the fact sheet.
