Boiler,heating and water all working OK but manual override to turn heat on before preset time caused dripping under boiler.Cause and solution?


Did the boiler winter over with the heat turned off and no winterization? If so, then the boiler may have frozen and cracked. Replace it.
If it WAS drained down and winterized, and you just filled it with cold water before firing it, it may be condensation.

I'm going on 2 month vacation during ny upstate winter. I'm shutting off all water at the main house inlet. Rather than emptying my gas water heater, I'd like to keep in in "vacation"mode. Will that work?


Since it will not be boiling it will not lose any water, however I would be concerned about the low temperatures allowing mold or Legionnaires in rare cases to grow, I would call a local plumber for their opinion as to drain or not for your area.
I would drain it and leave it open at the drain and the T and P valve if possible.

How do you winterize Model GE20P06SAG? There is no drain at the very bottom...?


Thank you for including model number for EZ identification of water heater
To drain tank without drain valve: Remove TP valve at top of tank and siphon out the water. Then reinstall with correct pipe configuration shown in product manual.

Product manual shows drain valve is not supplied with this unit.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/GE20P06SAG-under-counter.pdf

Product manual shows the Installer should add both shut off valve and drain valve on cold water inlet line.

I have a Park Model RV with a Rheemglas Fury model 81VP205 with no bottom drain. How do I drain the water heater to winterize for the cold Northern Winters?


Make sure it's off (hydro) and open drain at cold line going in bottom wherever you find a drain (usually close to it) going down through floor and outside under trailer. Follow cold line back until you see a line "T" and one line going down under trailer, and open it up underneath. Then open pressure relief valve at top of tank to allow for faster draining .

How do you drain the Ariston GL4


is there a pet **** on the bottom under a plastic cap? you might have to take the cover off and I would recomend putting some boiler drains in the line for future draining,, all units of water heaters have drains and looking at the picture I see something sticking down on the bottom see if thats not the drain

Water pump does not work when i turn on hot water tap


Since the cold water works, the problem is not the pump. Look for a blockage or possibly a major leak in the hot water system. if you have a kitchen sink and bathroom sink, are both hot water outlets not working? Does the water heater have shut off valve , or is its drain still open from when you winterized it (and the water running out to the ground instead of to the faucet?
