Yes you can just order the heat exchange system can you tell me where you are at I just need the state and I can tell you if there is a pool warehouse but every heater has a heat exchange that can be replaced and let me ask you this did you have a chlorination system after of before the heater is so this is what is causing you this problem or are you putting tablets on the skimmer ? in other worlds this leak was caused by a high volume of chemicals normally acid or chlorine tablet dispenser closed to heater lines

Master temp 400 2 yr old bad heat exchanger??


i dont blame you for your frustration!! i have hadseveral customers who had great water chemistry and had the heat exchanger fail. if you have a salt water pool, you should have been advised to purchase a heater with a cupro nickel heat exchanger instead of just a copper one. otherwise since ur chemistry was spot on, then you unfortunatly purchased a bad unit

Sta Rite 333 Btu Natural Gas Heater Maxetherm Sr333na Leaks water and high copper in my water


It sounds like your water has either been running at a low pH level, or you have a salt system. Basically your heat exchanger coil has dissolved into your pool water.
The exchanger can be replaced although it is pricey. I would recommend replacing it with a cupronickel coil. This is far more resistant to the type of corrosion you have experienced. Just be sure to keep a closer eye on the pH also.

Which one is compatable water heater to Rheemglas fury Model#41V50?


You have 6-year 50 gallon gas water heater:
42V50 would be the newer model number. They make tall and short models.
http://www.rheem.com/product.aspx?id=CC643E03-4C15-4775-B139-E504A95651F7

All brands of water heater are good.
So any 50 gallon gas water heater from local box store or hardware is good product.
Tanks with longer warranty last longer. So 9-year and 12-year water heater will last longer, unless you have very hard water or odor in water and need to change frequently.
I recommend avoiding water heaters with electronic controls since they are not protected from power surge and can cost more to repair.

My Honeywell Water Heater Thermostat will turn on for 30 seconds. Then it shuts down- wait 5 seconds turn it off EITHER with the ON/OFF switch OR by turning thermostat to off & back on immediately! If...


Time to call qualified service technician. And watch what that person does to learn about your water heater.
I assume you have Honeywell Icon gas valve. Honeywell makes different several model numbers.

Here is 'typical' Honeywell Icon gas valve service manual for Bradford White, that may or may not apply to your water heater. It shows testing for Icon and disassembly instructions, and error codes.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Bradford-white-service-manual-44943-D.pdf

Gas water heaters today require yearly service that includes cleaning burner parts and combustion chamber, checking vent and air intake, electrical connections, testing gas valve, checking gas pressure, bleeding air out of gas line, etc. These are things you can learn to do by reading service manual, and making sure you have a spare water heater around to connect real quick if experiment goes wrong.
If Icon gas valve is problem, that control is modular and can be replaced without draining tank.

Water flows out the condensation tube even when the heater is not runiing causing the pool to leak down. The heater is 4 years old. Thank you.


It sounds like there is a leak in your system. The condensation tube is to drain off the water because one of the byproduct of combustion is water and it condenses on the heat exchanger. Since it is only 4 years old it might be under warrantee for this issue. The problem might be simple but could be very expensive if the heat exchanger has a leak.

Have Error code FO, no hot water. Press reset and water gets warm for few seconds then goes off again.


1) BOSCH website shows error codes.
FO does not appear:
http://www.boschhotwater.com/HelpfulResources/TechnicalSupport/BoschAquaStarModels/2400ESTechSupport/Troubleshooting/tabid/1295/Default.aspx

2) I do not see FO error code listed on Internet search
Other FO questions at fixya seem to have no answer:
http://www.fixya.com/tags/error_f0_bosch

3) At this point, I would suggest calling a service technician.
While waiting for service, read manual cover to cover several times.

4) Your manual is valuable resource, and shows the word 'maintenance' and 'troubleshoot' frequently.
Tankless are maintenance heavy, and should be de-limed each year.
U-tube search "delime tankless water heater."

5) Also explore Bosch website for your manual and other valuable information.

6) When service tech arrives, ask that person for tips and tricks about your unit that will help you maintain your water heater.

7) All costs are energy. Install DIY tank-type gas water heater and avoid the whole headache.

1) Electric heater, do not touch electric heater that is wet or has been wet unless power is 100% off.
2) Gas heater: Same applies to gas heater if controls are electronic, or if electric is grounded to hot water pipe.

3) Manufactures suggest replacing water heater that has been flooded.
Warranty is voided.
Set next heater higher.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-gas-water-heater.html

4) Electric: You can replace thermostats and elements, but if insulation is wet, the unit could short and be continual electrocution danger >>> and you can't operate electric heater with covers removed because cool air will keep thermostats from reading correct temperature.
5) Gas: You can clean out combustion chamber and replace gas valve and burner assembly, but new heater from local hardware or box store will save time and possibly money.

6) Use old heater as tempering tank if incoming water is cold:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tempering-tank.html
Or use old tank as solar collector:
