Salt system destroying flagstone coping

My flagstone coping is being destroyed by the salt system in our pool. It is flaking and crumbling. I have tried sealing it with everything I can think of. I guess the only solution is to change the coping to something else or go back to chlorine? Any suggestions? Anyone else having this problem?

Although we haven't tried it (still in the planning stages of the pool) there is a web site that specializes in flagstone that recommends acrylic is called Everclear by Euclid and the other is Siloxane CP-500W by by CPI

Trouble shoot heater hot water valve

It's not the GV. It's the Thermostat calling for heat when set to A/C and/or the Controller on the furnace.
The GV with a Hot Surface Igniter has nothing to do with the problem described as it only controls burner ignition when heat is called for.
Stay away from working on Gas Valves if you are not a licensed Technician or Tradesperson. Explosions can kill people and destroy property

What is the function of the anode in the geyser

The proper term is a "sacrificial anode." The idea is that it is made of a softer attractive metal for corrosive minerals. The minerals attach and destroy the anode first before the tank. You should inspect the anode at least once a year.

I don't have a problem, just a question. I recently purchased a home with a GE Smartwater softening system installed Model GXSF23Z01. What do I need to do to maintain this system. Does it require salt?...

Check the time of day, and make sure it's accuate. Reset if necessary. Add salt if it's low. It's always best to let the salt level run low (about 1-2") so it doesn't mush. Only add 80-100 lbs at a time for best results. This particular softener doesn't keep a water level in the tank, so you won't see any water in the salt area. If there is standing water in the salt area, that could mean it's not working the way it should. Here is a link to the owners manual. It's in PDF format

Our water softener has stopped working. The salt has turned into one big block. What do I do? Can this be fixed? How?

You are going to have to clean the salt block out of the tank. You can try using the end of a broom handle to try breaking it up. Be careful not to go to bottom of tank. Try pouring a couple gallons of hot water over salt bridge if that does not work and retry. Avoid using pellet salt it causes problems like this. If there is currently water at the bottom of salt tank then system is not working and needs repair.
Hope this helps,

Black flakes come out when the hot water side of the faucet is used

These black flakes must be in your line or your expansion tank. Remove the filter from your faucet, temporarily, and let just the hot water side run until the water comes out clean. You must flush these black flakes out.

step 2 may be a clue that all that needs to be done (to turn out the light) is to depress the diagnostic button for about 3 seconds. Of course, some inspection or cleaning might still need to be done to preserve its life.

Thank you for your service. I haven't seen the name Blankenship since I left home in 58 to join the Navy.
