Have You Recently Received a Letter Requiring the Installation of a Thermal Expansion Control Device?
County building departments and water companies across Georgia have been sending out notices to residents urging them to install thermal expansion tanks before they begin work on the local water system. This is due to a notice received by the water department from the federal government requiring water supplies to be protected against backflow. Slowly but surely all the old water meters are being updated with dual check valves and in some areas, electronic read meters.
County regulating authorities recommend the use of a thermal expansion device in conjunction with the backflow prevention device to create a closed system. A thermal expansion tank is a simple and effective method of ensuring that the water system in your home is safe and meets local code requirements.
The plumbing professionals at My Georgia Plumber can install a thermal expansion tank to meet your county code requirement quickly and efficiently at an affordable price.

What is thermal expansion?
When is thermal expansion tank installation necessary?
A thermal expansion tank must be installed when any of the following occurs:
- A recent water meter replacement
- A hot water heater replacement
- The construction of a new home
- When a backflow preventer is installed on the water meter or a pressure reducing valve is installed on the service line
