2015 Puma Unleashed 27 SBU. There is a valve under the trailer....it is located under the refrigerator...when I open the valve..it releases water. Should this valve stay open or closed and where is t


Sounds like it may be a low point drain for winterizing. I would disconnect from city water and turn your pump off. Then open the valve. If only a little water comes out then stops have some one watch it while you turn your pump back on. Assuming you have some water in your tank!! If it squirts out under pressure it it probably a drain and should remain closed unless you are winterizing. If it just drips a bit it may be a drain for the defrost function of your refrigerator. After you have figured all that out,hook back up to city water and check it again. Good luck.

Low flow trough the heater


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Drain a tank:
  1. Shut off power at the electric panel and post a sign warning others not to turn it on.
  2. Close the cold-water supply valve and open a hot-water faucet somewhere in the house (to speed draining).
  3. Attach a garden hose to the drain valve and run it outside the house.
  4. Open the drain valve and allow all water to drain out.
  5. To refill the tank, close the drain valve tightly and open the cold-water supply valve. Also open a nearby hot-water faucet. When a steady stream of water flows from that faucet, the tank is full and the faucet can be closed.
  6. Once the tank is full, turn the electrical power back on.
Test and replace a relief valve:
  1. Lift the spring lever on the valve to fill a small cup. Check the cup for sediment.
  2. If no water spurts out, or if water continues to drip after the valve is released, replace the valve.
  3. Cut power at the electric panel and post a sign warning others not to turn it on. Close the cold-water supply valve.
  4. Drain a few gallons of water from the tank.
  5. Unscrew and remove the discharge pipe if used.
  6. Loosen the relief valve with a pipe wrench, then remove the valve by hand.
  7. Apply pipe tape to the threads of the replacement valve and screw it into the tank by hand. Tighten it with a pipe wrench. Screw the discharge pipe (if any) into the valve outlet.
  8. Refill the water heater and restore electrical power.

Heater comes on with water


please see the next step:
he pilot light may be out or may not stay lit. There may not be enough hot water, or the water may be too hot. The water heater may leak or be noisy, or the hot water may be dirty.
A problem with your water heater may be due to overwork, not mechanics. If your water heater holds less than 15 gallons per family member (tank volume is stamped on a metal plate affixed to most water heaters), consider a larger unit or staggering your use of hot water.
Drain a hot water tank:
  1. Turn the gas-control knob to off and close the gas-shutoff valve.
  2. Close the cold-water supply valve and open a hot-water faucet in the house to speed draining.
  3. Attach a garden hose to the drain valve and run it outside to a drain. If the heater is in the basement you may need to run the hose to or through a sump pump.
  4. Open the drain valve and allow the tank to drain.
  5. Once done, close the drain valve, open the cold-water supply valve, and open any nearby hot-water faucet. When a steady stream of water flows from that faucet, the tank is full; close the hot-water faucet.
  6. Once the tank is full, turn on the gas and relight the pilot.

I have just purchased a PC air compressor. I have set it up when I turn it on it runs but no pressure builds in the tank. It gauge stays at zero. I noticed there is a part on the bottom of the tank that...


The machine came with this valve with screw showing (i.e gives the impression of it being open). When I left it this way, my machine filled correctly. When I tightened it, the tank gauge did not fill up, and there was air coming out from that valve.

My water heater won't circulate water. i think it is clogged with calcium


One thing you might try is to shut off power or turn gas valve to pilot,as you didn't say if it was gas or electric. Hook up garden hose to drain valve and run hose to floor drain or sump basin. Shut off water supply valve to heater. Open drain valve and if you get a decent flow then let it drain tank about half way. If flow rate drops drastically then open hot side on faucet nearby to break vacumn.When you think tank is about halfway drained then shut off faucet if you opened one and close drain valve. Turn water supply valve back on and let tank refill. When it is full leave supply valve on and open drain valve and let water flush thru system for several mins. Close drain valve and run water on both hot and cold side of faucets fartherest away from heater as possible. Close this faucet
Turn tharmostat up as high as it will go and let heater run till it shuts off then return thermostat to original setting. Go through the drain and flush procedure a couple more times and this shold help break mineral deposits loose and flush them out. This should make for more efficeint operation and help prolong the tank life. Hope this helps you. Have a good new year and thank you.

Need to empty reliance 501 hot water heater how?


1) Shut the breaker off to it at the panel. 2) Hook a hose up to it (the bottom has a drain). 3) Close the valve to the water heater (on the cold water supply). 4) Open drain on the bottom of water heater. 5) Open the relief valve to allow air into the tank (it won't drain otherwise - think if you put your finger on one end of a straw - the liquid stays in until you let go). Why are you draining it by the way?

When you are not going to use your compressor for a long time should the air release valve stay open or closed?


always leave the valve closed..

but make sure you drain all of the water out of it before you put it up, so you don't rust the tank out

Hot water coming out of overflow pipe on my vulcan everhot water


Assuming you are talking about the temperatur/pressure relief valve, it is stuck open.

1. Turn off gas or electric to water heater
2. Close water supply to water heater
3. open hot water faucet on nearest fixture to depressurize hot water system.
4. close tpr valve (you may have to push in on the center spine. It may be resistant to closing from sediment. If so, opening and closing several times may solve that issue.

Once you get the tpr valve closed, close the faucet and open the supply valve. If the tpr stays closed, go ahead and turn on the gas/electric and re-light pilot and turn on control etc.

If the TPR blows again, you will need to replace it. YOu can buy a new one at any plumbing supply store. Shut down the heater again, drain a bit of water out using the valve on the bottom of the tank. there is probably copper pipe connected to the TPR valve which you may have to cut or maybe can just unscrew. The TPR threads out of the tank, install the new valve (make sure to use pipe dope or teflon tape.
