Leaks


The fitting at the top need to be looked at. Use tolit paper wipe around all the fittings and drain lines over head check the popoff valve next if you got a plastic drain valve. Replace it with a 3/4 nipple and cap or a ball valve full port and hose adapter turn gas valve off and use up the hot water I had a valve break during replasment cool water is better. Use pipedope on fitings

I just had a noritz tankless hot water heater converted from LP gas to natural gas, and had the hot water heater moved outside my garage. Before the gas change over and the move, I could turn on my garage...


One thing that comes to mind right off is did they use proper size orifices when they converted? L.P. uses a much smaller size then natural gas because it runs at a much higher pressure. Just a thought but I had a water heater from the factory for a mobile home that had the nat. gas sticker on gas valve and I hooked it up in town to nat. gas supply. Unfortunately it had L.P. orifices and I was in a hurry to get to another job ,lit it turned burner on and left. Two hours later my customer called to say they didn't have enough hot water. Didn't take long to discover what the problem was and correct it. Thank god for good customers. Hope this helps you. Thanks

Hot water heater not venting properly.


Hi .. it appears that your house is very tight. From your description of leaving a window open , it seems that the gas heater is suffering from lack of make - up air. Forcing the gas exhaust up the chimney will not really resolve this. You will still be trying to move air out without any air input to replace it. You may be able to install a spring loaded vent so there will be an air exchange. Something like a dryer or bath vent hood installed backwards .. this might work. There does not need to be much of a make-up air supply .. something like a 1 inch hole might be enough. I have seen this problem in a neighbors house , he weather proofed his house so good, that his fireplace would not light, no draft !

Any thoughts, concerns?

Please Vote !

Tankless water heater: cold sandwich effect. While showering, hot water stops for about 1 min and then runs again. Was fine for 5 years.


tankless water heaters are a great appliance with one small draw back they require a constant flow of water through them to maintain production of hot water if the water presure fluctuates they can cut out momentarily or if your water supply is less than great ie hard ,high iron,
sulpher ect.. then the heat exchanger can become plugged over time like say 5 years. Contamination of the flow sensor/presure switch could also be a culprit depending on how handy you are a through cleaning with a good kettle descaler will probably help.
Good Luck
