What are seismic straps and do I need them?

Seismic straps are also known as earthquake straps or water heater restraining straps. These are straps that brace or anchor your water heater to the wall. They prevent the water heater from falling when an earthquake happens.

We follow all local and national codes when installing your water heater. We install seismic straps with every water heater installation up to or exceeding the codes governing your home. For seismic strapping information in Oregon, you can read this.
