You have water visible on outside of tank?
TP temperature-pressure valve is probably releasing water.

I currently have a tank type natural gas water heater. My home is near Portland, Oregon, and was built in 1987. to change to a tankless gas water heater, can I use my existing gas vent pipe or will I have...


Depends on what type of vent pipe it is. Usually a house of that age, a better vent pipe is needed. Also, tankless water heaters need a more direct path to exit exhaust then the tank water heaters. Chances are you will need to either just replace the type of pipe to one that can withstand higher heat and/or relocate the pipe exit to a more direct route outside the house.

I have a alpha cd32 boiler,and i keep having to top the water up within the boiler,so to get hot water and heating again.i have checked for water leaks and nothing is found,however i did check the outlet...


Pressure relief valve - replace
The internal seal gets bunged up with dirt & scale and then leaks water [pressure] to that outside pipe
To avoid draining the whole system, turn off the two central heating taps on the 3/4 pipes and then operate the valve manually and / or disconnect - only a small amount of water will escape / drip to below the boiler
Replace valve and fill as before.
If you think your system needs flushing out - now is a good time
Turn off mains electricity to boiler before starting work

Alpha 240e boiler wont fire up for hot water, will for heating


most likely the diverter valve.. when hot tap turned on the movement of the water through the valve operates a diaphragm which pushes a pin/button//switch to tell the boiler to fire up
