My GC 7320 keeps leaking all the water in tank can this be repaired ? If so how much ?


If the heater is rented call the company you rent from. If the leak is in external plumbing connections, yes, otherwise not likely.

There are temporary fixes for external plumbing. You can buy something or cover a leak with a section of rubber hose with clamps. If this stops it, you can call a plumber (or skilled relative) to make a permanent fix.


Be careful to comparison shop as prices may vary. This is where you find out whether you can trust your plumber. If you know the approximate price in advance, you can compare it to a price quoted by your plumber. Don't pay more than the store with the orange trim.

If you recently replaced something like an anode or heating element, suspect that your teflon tape or pipe compound was not applied right.

you can try opening it into a bucket most of them are threaded to hook a hose to it. opening it and closing it might fix the leak but if not just turn the power and water coming in and take a wrench and turn the old one out. and get a new one at your local hardware store or home supply store like a do it best store or lowes or home depot.

Leaking at welded fitting on tank? can i jb weld around the fitting


Many have tried same, and only a few have been successful, and at best, only temporarily. Believe it or not, I had 3 do the exact same thing last year, corroded right through the meaty part of the fitting, where you would think would be the last place it would eat through. Being in the RV Service trade, I only want to have to fix it once, and don't want to be responsible for any future floods when away from unit so I replace the tank. I've seen some wild fixes over the years, such as a piece of thick rubber hose over the pinhole with a gear clamp (hose clamp) tightened over it to stop the leak, and it was actually working to stop the leak. Your choice, your gamble, but if you decide to try a quick fix, I'd make real sure I shut the pump or city water supply off when your not going to be close by or in the trailer for any amount of time just in case. Hate to come back from a walk and see water running out the door of the trailer. Good Luck.

My water heater is leaking cold water from the bottom. How do I fix it? its a Richmond miser. Model # 8v30-1


First shut off power then remove acess cover and carefully move insulation out of the way so you can see around elements.Check to see if leak is coming from around element.If it is determine what type of element you have. Either screw in or bolted in. Both have thick rubber gaskets that can be replaced by draing water heater and removing element then install new gasket and reinstall element.
To drain heater shut off valve on incoming cold water supply line ,make sure electric power is off. Connect drain hose to drain valve and put other end to floor drain or sump basin.You can open faucet on hot side near by to prevent vacumn and drain. If you have screw in type disconnect wires,marking them for reattachment,then use large open end wrench or pipe wrench on hex section of element and turn to left to remove. If you have bolt in element spray bolts with wd-40 or similar and carefully loosen bolts then disconnect wires and remove element.install new gasket and reverse to reinstall. I would recommend that you replace elements at this time if you are sure this was the source of the leak.
If you don't think it's leaking around elements then check fitting on both water lines to water heater to be sure they are not leaking and seeping down thru insulation and leaking out of the bottom of heater. Next check around drain valve for leak and if it's leaking you can try tightening it a little or replace it with 3/4 x2 brass nipple and 3/4 inch female iron pipe boiler drain. Use teflon tape or pipe joint compound on all threaded connections.
After you have eliminated all other sources for leak then it is probably the tank itself. If it is less then six years old the tank should still be covered under warrenty. Most warrenties will give you a new heater but installation will not be covered unless you have extended service coverage.
I hope this helps you some. Thank you

Slight water leak from plastic drain fitting on rheem fury 40 gal gas water heater


You can try to crack it open and get a little piece of crud out of there, I'm sure that is all it is, Just get a tray or something to catch the water, It should stop it, If it gets worse, turn the water off to the heater, then open the valve and hope the bigger piece of crud comes out. It is about all you can do, other than drain the whole thing and take the valve apart and replace the rubber in it. Check it out, Hope this helps.

This water heater has two elements, correct?? Well how do you get them out?


The first thing to do is shut off power supply to the heater. Then while water is still on hook up garden hose to drain valve on bottom of heater. Place hose to floor drain or some other location for safe drainage. Open drain valve and if it starts draining at a good rate then shut water supply valve off to heater. You will want to open hot side of closest faucet to prevent vacumn which will slow or stop draining. After heater is done draining shut off drain valve and faucet . Remove the cover plates on top and bottpm of heater. Usually four small screws. Locate heating elements and disconnect wiring,label if you need to for reinstallation. There are two kinds of heating elements,one is held in place with 4 hex head bolts,and the other is screwed in. If yours has the bolts carefully remove to avoid breaking bolts.Then just pull out to remove To reinstall there will be a new rubber gasket with element, fit it in place and insert element back in heater. Reconnect wires. If there are no bolts apparent then the element screws into heater. You will need a pipe wrench or large wrench to remove the element. The same thing with this element is that it should have a new rubber gasket. Put gasket in place and wrap threads with 5 to 6 wraps of teflon tape. Install element and tighten snugly. Connect wires,refill with water and check for leaks. If no leaks then turn power back on. Put cover plates back on and you're done. I hope this helps you. Thanks

Leaking water heater, the spout on the side is dripping water all over the basement floor.


You can try fixing this problem by putting a garden hose cap over end of valve.
Cap has a washer.
If leak is bad, you need to replace drain valve.

If the valve is brass, then drain water heater and put a wrench on valve and unscrew.
Buy replacement brass valve from plumbing supply or Lowes-HomeDepot

If the valve is plastic, then expect it to break off when trying to remove.
If it breaks off, then you can carefully drill out the stem, and then burn it out with a torch and use a 3/4" pipe nipple to try to cut a new thread.
