    Water heater leak question

    My water heater likes to start dripping out of the relief valve at the top side of the unit. If I put a bowl under it and pull the lever a bit and re-close it it stops dripping (the water is hot). So what is broke and what do I need to do to fix it. The old heater had a pipe attached to that...

    Safe heater for spraying?

    So, it's cold (suddenly, if you're not watching the calendar) and it is time to get more heat in my shop...40x 20 with 10' ceilings, well- insulated. Been heating with ventless propane 30k btu, which takes the edge off on most days. Now I am doing some lacquer spraying (rattle can) which will...

    Water Heater Qestion/possible issue

    About 1.5 months ago I changed out my water heater, no problem. Temp was comfortable, but not the "hot" I was used to. This past weekend I bleached my system and thoroughly flushed the water heater(powered down) and refilled. Now the water is almost scalding hot. Did I mess something up, or...

    Heater for garage/shop

    I have been thinking for a year about putting a heater in my garage to take the bite out of the winter. In Dec I saw a "good deal" on a 5600w heater. It was somewhat of an impulse buy... For those of you that don't regularly think about watts that is ~23A @240v. After thinking about it I know...

    Water heater update

    OK folks, I am officially baffled. :confused_ The maintenance guys replaced our old water heater with a brand new one (same size, etc) and the hot water STILL runs out after two showers (10 to 15 minutes each, 20 to 30 minutes total). The tank is located in our laundry room, which is heated, so...

    LP tank, tankless heater and duel-fuel heat pump

    The water heater thread reminded me that I've been putting off some decisions - so thanks to all for the info on tankless water heaters. I've been considering one of those for a couple of reasons, primarily energy efficiency. The unlimited hot water will be nice as our three boys start...

    Water heater question(s)

    OK all you DIY'ers, I've got a question for you. Back around Thanksgiving we suddenly noticed that our hot water ran out after about 20 minutes. We never had a problem with it before. Of course, we are renting and I'm not the one fixing this, but even the maintenance guys seem to be at a...

    Cheap Bearing Heater

    Today, I was changing out some bearings on an electric motor. Used puller to remove old ones. Took the new ones, one at a time and set it on top of a 60 watt light bulb (lit of course) for about three minutes. Wearing a leather glove picked up bearing an dropped it onto the shaft.

    Heater Deal @ Sams ?

    I saw this at Sams on my last trip and thought real hard about tossing one in the cart for my basement shop. Figured I'd better ask around here to see if it really was a deal or not.... Might work pretty well for my purposes as I've got a basement shop that, while unheated, holds temps pretty...

    30,000 BTU 5-Plaque Natural Gas Radiant Heater

    Is this a Good deal? If so I will be getting it tomorrow. Just don't want to rush into buying a Radiat heater as they are also known as a infared heater and only heat the objects in front of it. But then again $35 is way in my price range...

    hot water heater question

    My hot water heater stopped working. I was following instructions to see if I can reignite the pilot light. There is a small dark piece of glass I am supposed to look through. I am not seeing anything sort of light back there when I try and relight the pilot. Any idea what I should be seeing and...

    Another water heater question for you all, sorry :P Anyway, I have a crawlspace with a direct vent water heater that has a vent pipe that goes up a few inches and then horizontal a foot or two through a cinder block wall. It just died and needs a replacement. A friend has an extra water...

    Can I install a water heater without soldering the pipes?

    I just took down my old water heater. The inlet and outlet pipes were soldered so I had to hacksaw them. I don't have a torch for soldering pipes. Is there a coupler or something I can use instead?
