What's wrong with a leaking shower head following new boiler and how do I fix it?


The valves are leaking. It's not the shower head itself. Sometimes shower faucets require special tools to service the valves. If you have thought about new shower valves, now would be a good time to replace. Repair may be half the cost of installation of new. In other words, plumber's time to repair or replace is about the same. Get several quotes. TV show This Old House had one on a replacement. It may be available online. Home Depot or Lowes or Ace Hardware may be able to help, Or similar Hardware outlet in your area.

There is power to the system but when you turn water on elements do not come one and heat water. all phases have 238 volts to them. why will system not turn on and heat water


Do you have 3-phase water heater? Is this balanced or unbalanced 3-phase unit. Add comment and describe product in detail, including brand since i have some service resources for both types.
Or do you have ordinary residential split-phase 240Volt Bosch tankless computer that heats water, and has 2 or 3 separate elements, and a separate circuit breaker supplying power to each element? And testing across both hot leads coming from each breaker yields 238Volt?
Copy following link for Bosch tankless manuals, with brief troubleshoot section that does not provide detailed service procedures for repairing tankless computer:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-Tankless-electric-water-heater.html#manual
If this is new water heater, then call installer. If you installed yourself, then remove tankless and return to seller for refund.
Tankless computers require certain amount of water flow to activate computer sensors. Turn on Hot tap and listen to pipe to hear if water if flowing through hot pipe. Check for crossover:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Crossover.html
Clean water filter usually located just above where cold water connects to unit.
Delime tankless ... and use water softener. Tankless cannot be exposed to more than 11 grains hardness in water, or parts will fail within 2-3 years. Simply deliming tankless heat exchanger each year will not maintain full efficiency... although for typical family of 4, tankless comper water heater costs $100 more to operate than tank-type heater according to manufacturer's promo literature and independent studies.
Call local technician who specializes in fixing tankless computers. For plumbing problems call local plumber. These are two different things.
If tankless computer is older, then cut losses, and buy tank-type electric water heater at Lowes for $285 and make quick changeover and have hot water same day. Sell old tankless on ebay and cheat next guy, or sell at scrapyard for $3 per 100.

Hot water heater water is just warm am wandering if its something that i can fix. its a reliance 501 electric heater


did you turn up the thermo stat?? it is right under the top and bottom cover. Turn off the power remove the top and bottom plates remove the insulation ( its just a patch)you then should see the adjustment screw witht eh little pointer. Turn it to the right as far as you chose the more you turn it the hotter it should get.

I would split where it is now to all the way right and give it an hour to see it that is hot enough for you. If not move the pointer the rest of the way.

Now if that does not work I would replace both top and bottom elements. If the heater is 10 yeer old or older I would replace them both now anyway. they are covered with lime.

You will need a heater element to remove it. they do mot cost much you can get all that you need at home depot or lowes or advanced hardware

Thanks Tom

I want to buy a new energy star 50 gal. gas tank hot water heater that will be trouble free (not like the PROMAX GVC) can you give me some suggestions on makes and models that are reliable, energy friendly...


Hi Chris.

My experience with water heater is like cars.
There are a few manufacturers making all the cars, and people sometimes get a bad one.
AO Smith, Bradford White, Rheem make most of the water heaters.
Each is shipping 150,000+ water heaters a month.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-manufacturers.html

Since all costs are energy, I suggest buying off-the-shelf tank-type water heater at local box store.
Sears, Ace, Home Depot, Lowes/ in no particular order.
The big manufacturers make box-store brands. All brands are good. The warranties are industry standard.
Stay away from blowers and electronics so you can maintain and repair the unit yourself with common, inexpensive off-the-shelf parts.
Install it yourself for around $330.
Adapt to the water heater. Read the manual and advisories. Do the maintenance so you are not disappointed.
Use the old tank as a staging tank for cold incoming water, or use it for DIY solar water heater:
Read the money-saving installation tips, plus a few maintenance tricks shown on following link.

I have a 40 gallon rheem water heater for a mobil home that is leaking from the top.


If water heater is leaking, then open following 2 links to avoid tank rupture and troubleshoot leak:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Emergency-steps-for-leaking-water-heater.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-is-leaking.html

Open following link if you want to install your own gas water heater:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-gas-water-heater.html

40 gallon electric heater at Lowes costs 207, and is easy do-it-yourself using same basic information shown in link above for installing gas heater, except less work.

To have gas water heater installed, can run $2-300 for installation plus cost of heater.
40 gallon natural gas water heater at Lowes starts at $300+, and tanks with longer warranty cost more and last longer.
Trailers require specific type of gas water heater, so be sure to request correct model.

If you maintain the tank: keep chemicals out of same room as gas water heater, attach bare copper ground wire between hot and cold pipes, flush tank each 6 months, clean gas burner each year as shown in manual, read the manual entirely for specific information about your model, and inspect/replace anode rod every 2-3 years then basic 6-year tank can last much longer.

It's probably bad upper or lower thermostat.
BUT... new element could also be shorted.
OR ... original tank is rated 1500 watt elements look at label on side of tank.
I always replace both thermostats to save time.
Lower thermostat costs $10 at Lowes.

No hot water at all


1. Check and see if the thermostats are getting power.
Remove cover (access Door) Test the leads for power
2. If there is power at the thermostats try hitting the reset button on the top thermostat
3 Check and see if there is power at the element
4. To tune up your water heater is an easy job ... You can buy thermostats for less than 15 bucks and elements cost 8 dollars at lowes or home depot. Remember to kill the power when working on the unit. It is 220V It will kill you !

Disco Power
Turn water off
Drain Tank
Remove wires to Elements ( Remember to match the amps on the elements !) If they are 3500 replace with 3500 etc.
take a wrench and remove elements and install new.
next replace the thermostats wire exactly as you see them

This project costs 30 dollars and makes your water heater new again !
DO NOT TURN POWER ON BEFORE THE TANK IS FILLED

Open the faucets in the house when they quite blowing air the tank is full !

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

I have Atwood GC6aa-9e. Water isn't getting hot.


If you've checked at pressure relief valve ( careful, not to burn yourself just in case it is hot) by pulling lever and catching some water that comes out in a cup or whatever. If it feels hot out of there, check that by-pass isn't faulty. Not uncommon for valves to seize, and only partially open, or close, and end up mixing hot with cold.
