Question about Fasco Bradford White Hot Water Heater Exhaust Draft Inducer Blower # 239-42133-00
I was required to do SHOCK chlorination on my well (well water) for 3 straight days. High Chlorinated water is not good for rubber parts. Drain Valve began to leak when full pressure was applied to system and water tank was full.
Drain Valve below is metal but has no handle just slot for a screw driver to turn it. Tightened it as best I as could but leak wouldn't stop. None of this is in the GE SmartWater Manual it is Saturday Night and all the plumbers are CLOSED.
Had to cut off water to the house and water shut switch to water heater ; also had to drain water tank.
If the hot water heater is gas be sure it's turned off same if it's electric so you don't burn out theelements in the tank, I would advise you to buy some plumbers putty and pull the drain scre out and put putty in it then reinstall the screw. all the ones I looked at I could not tell by looking to see where the drain was and if it has like a hose bib on it or not. also pull the screw all theway out and see if you got some sand in the valve and if so use some compressed air in a can to blow the stuff out of the seating area of the screw. Hope this is helpful would be nice to have a picture of the drain.
