How do I drain the water tank


Anon, Make sure gas or breaker(power) is turned off to the Heater so it will not come on during draining,connect a hose onto bottom valve of water heater, run hose to a floor drain and insert, turn your water main off so as not to fill tank while draining, open water heater drain valve, water will then drain from attached hose into floor drain until empty. For water to run faster you may open a near by hot water tap, this will allow air into tank as you drain it, do not forget to turn this tap off before refilling tank. You then can turn main back on for a bit if you would like to do a flush of sediment from the bottom of tank.

Water from house pump tastes of chemicals. It is coming from the pump.


It can be replaced with a metal one if you can locate a metal one that is the same.

What brand/model of pump do you have? You may have a well pump or a pool type pump?

Big rainwater tank ran dry and so electric Onga pump that normally pumps water from big tank to little overhead tank kept failing. Have since refilled big rainwater tank, but pump keeps failing. Have


Release AIR lock. Air has got trapped in the pump hence it cannot create necessary level of suction. The way normally you do this by filling the water path of the pump with water and get the air released.

Why no water will come out of the water heater


Is there a shutoff on the hot water line coming out of the tank? Is this problem only at one tap or all of the taps in the house? Is the cold water supply to the tank turned off? If it is no water will flow since the cold water pressure pushes the hot out of the tank.

Last week my electric power went off for about one hour, in my kitchen I heard water rushing out my drains. when the lights came on I had no water.The well man came and said he had to turn my pressure...


It sounds like the bladder in your pressure tank is water logged. Turn your pump off and open a tap and let the pressure off. Once the water has completely stopped coming out of the tap go to your pressure tank and pump air into it. There should be more water come out of the tap. Continue to pump are in until you reach the pressure recommended for your tank and there is no longer water coming out of the tap. Close the water tap and turn the pump back on and this should fix the problem. If it does not you will probably need a new pressure tank. The bigger the pressure tank you have also will make the pump work less. I prefer a smaller one myself as there is less change in the shower pressure when the pump cycles than with a bigger tank but this is just a matter of prefference. Some people prefer a larger tank as it uses less power by the pump not working as often.

No hot water pressure


There are heat sync balls in the nipples of your cold and hot water lines on your hot water tank. Cut the water lines and remove these balls as sometimes they come loose and float to the point where your water line connections to the tank are causing the pressure to drop when your tap is turned on
