AMTROL WH7P-41 GAL TANK. 12 YRS OLD. BOILER PRESSURE IS INCREASING ABOVE 30PSI, AND DUMPING SMALL AMOUTS OF WATER FROM RELIEF VALVE ON BOILER. Do I replace coil?, or buy a new tank? Thank you


do you have a pressure tank as part of your water heater and water pipes? if yes, check to make sure tank pressure matches your incoming water pressure from your municipal hook up

I have Rheem model 41V50 leaking from the top...The top is a lid with screw....can I buy and replace the top ?


No.
Replace tank.
Buy 40 gallon from local Lowes and install yourself.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-gas-water-heater.html

Under thin metal shell is a welded steel tank, surrounded by insulation and then covered with painted metal shell. The shell is what you look at.
The inside steel tank is made to withstand high pressure expansion that comes with heating water.
The steel tank has rusted out.
Turn gas control valve to vacation, so pilot light stays on, and then only heat enough water as needed until you can replace tank.

Prevent next tank from rusting by replacing anode rod, and ground water pipes.

It is leaking out of the top. not out of the hot or cold valves but out of a nut by the cold side.


Your tank is rusted out and needs to be replaced.
Link below is a troubleshoot for leaking water heater.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Leaking-water-heater.html

Protect yourself first:
If your tank is rusted, there is danger of rupture.
My friend welded his leaking tank, but he assumes the risk.
Ruptured tank can cause massive damage and water runs until it is shut off.

Hot water tank is under pressure because hot water expands and pushes against tank wall.
Turn off water to tank.
Turn off power supply:
Electric: turn off circuit breaker.
Gas: rotate knob to pilot so pilot stays lit but burner will not fire. To turn back on, rotate knob to ON.
Open hot side bathtub valve and relieve pressure on tank.

You can limp by with rusted tank by turning water heater on when hot water is needed.
Shower uses 5-9 gallons hot water
Bath uses 12-15 gallon hot water
Ordinary gas heater makes 41 gallons hot water per hour
Ordinary electric heater makes 20 gallons hot water per hour.

I buy water heaters at Lowes, Home Depot, Ace.
Look for scratch and dent models.
Buy drip pan for water heater.
Wrap electric heater totally with insulation except TP valve.
Buy new flexible connectors for water lines.
Offer 15% less than marked price on tank, because the store makes money on additional items.

> Most people can install their own electric heater since you just connect water pipes and electric wire, and it's done. Read link below since there are tips that help you buy and install electric.
> Generally people are nervous about installing gas water heater, so step-by-step instructions are shown on link below. Remember gas line is under less pressure than water line, so if you can install a water pipe, you can install gas line to water heater with crescent wrench, and soapy water to check for leaks.

I HAVE A RELIANCE 630 DORT( 40 GALLON) THAT IS ONLY GIVING ABOUT ONE MINUTE OF HOT WATER AND AN ELECTRICIAN THAT JUST WANTS TO CHANGE PARTS. HOW COULD I TEST THE DIFFERENT OPTIONS BEFORE I JUST START...


Reliance is AO Smith company
http://www.aosmith.com/OperatingUnits/Detail.aspx?id=138&ekmensel=c580fa7b_12_0_138_3

Age of water heater is on serial number located on label on side of tank. First digit is letter, next two digits are the year. So C04 is 2004. Label also shows wattage of elements inside tank.

606 water heater at Reliance
http://www.reliancewaterheaters.com/prod/e-606.html

PDF spec sheet below shows your tank takes 4500 watt element.
I buy ordinary screw-in type 4500 watt elements for $20 at Lowes, I can't remember price exactly because they're inexpensive.
http://www.reliancewaterheaters.com/lit/spec/electric/R606E0510.pdf

Typical 606 manual:
http://www.reliancewaterheaters.com/lit/om/manuals/185761-000.pdf
Shows element and cleaning/replacement page 20.
We know your lower element is burned out because plumber checked and said problem is element.
We know upper element is working because you have some hot water.
If upper element is bad, then tank has no hot water.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-it-works.html

Photo from manual shows typical element that I buy at Lowes or hardware store:
Manual does not mention special element required.
Your element burned out probably because sediment is built up inside tank, and not because stock elements are inferior.
Is your electrician/plumber also going to clean sediment out of tank?
Changing element and cleaning sediment will restore full efficiency to your tank.

Here are step-by-step images that show do-it-yourself, so you can see if this is correct project for you:

Page shows how to drain tank, replace element, and has links to troubleshooting if you want to test parts and learn more about your water heater.

Low boy water heater leaks at point where cold water pipe enters caseing.The leak is below the threads.The caseing is rusted at the point where the pipe goes through.Can this rusted place be patched or...


1) Your water heater needs to be replaced.
It cannot be repaired.
Tanks rust out after anode rod is depleted unless anode is inspected and replaced 1-3 years.
Water softener causes anode to deplete quicker, so inspect every 2 years.
Also stray household current can cause tank to rust out. Put bare copper ground wire between hot and cold pipes on new heater.

2) First thing is protect yourself from tank rupture where water heater bursts open and water runs until it's shut off. Ruptured tanks are big topic in homeowner insurance industry today because they cause major damage inside house.

- Turn off heat source so tank is not under pressure:
Gas: Rotate dial to pilot so pilot light stays lit, but burner does not turn on
Electric: turn off circuit breaker

- Turn off water going into tank using shut off above tank.
- Open hot side to bathtub to relieve pressure from tank.
- Check label on side of tank to get tank specifications for replacement.

3) What to do until replacement.
You can get by for a while on leaking tank by turning it ON only when needed.
Make sure tank is full of water before turning heat source back on.
This will buy time until replacement.
Electric tank heats 21 gallons water per hour.
Gas water heater 41 gallons per hour
Shower uses 6-9 gallons hot water, bath uses 12-15 gallon hot water.

4) Additional reading so next tank lasts longer

My water heater is leaking a lot. water comes from the down bellow. It started like three months ago but it is getting worst Do I need to replace it? how much it will cost a similar one?


It sounds like you need to replace it, Actual cost can very widrly depending on your location but I would say $350-400 is probably close. Plus installation unless you can do it yourself. Hope this helps. Thanks

After connecting a drain line to the pressure relief valve of my MR85245 water heater, I now have water leaking badly out of the heating element door.


Turn off the electricity.
Turn off the water valve going into tank.
Open a bathtub spout to let hot water pressure off the tank.
Check top of tank for any leaks.
Open the top access panel and see if element is leaking.
Open bottom access panel and see if lower element is leaking.
The reduced pressure on the tank will slow the leak.

If element is the problem, you can squeak by for a while by turning on the hot water heater only when you need hot water.
Order the 'Marathon MR85245 replacement element' online
http://www.gpconservation.com/rheem/marathon-sp213670-titanium-4500w-lower-element
These elements may be available locally, but they are not the same as 'ordinary' tank-type electric heater elements that you buy at the hardware store.
Buy more than 1 element because the Marathon elements have problems.
One of the reported problems with marathon elements is the high price of stainless steel replacement elements.
Drain tank.
Replace element.

Relief valve on my water heater is dripping.Can I fix this?


There are two solutions:

1) Replace TP valve with same temperature/pressure as existing TP valve.
Buy the TP valve at hardware store or home center or plumbing supply.
Turn off water heater so water cools.
Hot water inside a tank is explosive ... so open the TP valve and test water temperature.
If TP is on top of tank, you don't need to drain much water before unscrewing
If TP is on side of tank, use the TP valve to drain water -or- use the drain valve
Unscrew TP to remove.
Put teflon tape on new valve threads so it will seal against leak.

2) If the new TP replacement starts doing the same thing, there may be a thermostat problem -or- thermostat is set too high.
If you keep the water temperature set high, you can add expansion tank to incoming cold water line.
Home Depot sells expansion tanks. Plumbing supply carries them,
The tank for residential water heaters is about same diameter as a football and it goes on cold water line.
