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

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.

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.

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:

Model # BFG1F4040S3N0V RESET BUTTON WON'T STAY LIT


You have a 6 year tank-type low-nox gas water heater
http://www.whirlpoolwaterheaters.com/products/ByCategory.aspx?id=1
Google search 'low nox' for more details about low nox type water heaters that burn fuel so less NO2 irritant is vented into atmosphere.

Owner's manual:
http://www.whirlpoolwaterheaters.com/downloads/6510397.pdf

1) You said 'reset button.' Only mention of 'reset' in manual is about FVIR flammable vapor ignition system where water heater shuts off when exposed to vapors that might catch fire or explode:
This model appears to have Whirlpool's new resettable FVIR so read instructions in manual for resetting FVIR. If FVIR will not reset using instructions, then call whirlpool at 1-877-817-6750

2) You said 'won't stay lit.' Manual has troubleshooting flowchart starting on page 24.
There are 13 items listed for pilot won't stay lit, with possible remedy for each.
There are 9 things for burner will not light, with remedies.
Call whirlpool at 1-877-817-6750

3) Save manual posted above. I install water heaters and tell everyone to read and save manual to empower them to help themselves.

4) Call a plumber for service.

Do you have a natural gas or propane water heater. You could possibly have a dirty valve which stops the flow of the gas. Has there been a change with the environment of the water heater. Check for the draft and back blow of the available air. If the water heater is over 6 years old maybe it is time to replace the unit. Good Luck
