Question about Water Heaters
Natural gas supplier employee (non-repair type person) in Bend, Oregon, after a lot of sniffing and then finally using a hand-held electronic sniffer, finally agreed that a very tiny amount of gas was leaking from probably an o-ring in an over-wise working fine water heater. Since I personally was not there to ask questions about where the o-ring was precisely, I am at a loss as to the exact location of the culprit. Is it all that difficult to replace a ten cent o-ring versus the phone quotes of $300 plus to $900 to do this? Heater is pretty much in the open in a garage, but there are other furnace pipes running about. I honestly cannot afford these quotes at the moment but might be able to fix it myself with a little guidance.
You can get a sudsy water solution and brush it on all over the place especially around joints and look for a leak via tell tale bubbles. If it is the water heater that has the leak there aren't too many places where you can have the leak and it should not be all that hard to check out.
