To work properly and be effective, gas water heaters rely on a steady flow of gas to a pilot light, which in turn ignites burners, which are often exposed, resulting in danger of an explosion or fire in an enclosed area.
Water heater manufacturers are required to meet standards for safe design and manufacture. In addition, licensed installers have a legal obligation to make sure the units are installed according to strict manufacturer requirements. If an injury occurs because of a heater explosion or fire, all parties involved in the manufacture, installation and maintenance may share liability for financial damages.
