Have a brand new water heater put in, and apparently we turned the power on before the tank was filled completely. How much would it cost to have it replaced in my area? Paducah KY. The water heater is a 50 gallon I believe.
Had a plumber come out a few months ago and said it was the element. So for someone who’s not handy like myself it wont be a problem replacing? Just make sure the power it disconnected, drain the tank and install the new element and fill the tank back up before turning it on again?
