Yes it can be done. The best way to do it is to go to a supplier or water heaters and let them know what you want to do. It might be as simple as changing and orafice or as complicated as changing the gas valve. No matter what you do, don't cut corners. Make sure you ask the right questions and get an answer you are satisfied with. An error could cost you everything.

Superflue. Why doesn't it stay lit?


If this is in a RV there is a propane monitoring valve. It will close and cut of the propane if it is not being used for a period of time or if there is a leak. The valve is mounted between the propane tank and the first appliance, usually inside the RV.

What does it take to convert a Rinnai R75LS water heater from propane to natural gas?


Contact Rinnai.
Gas control valve is different, burner is different, burner and gas valve must match, threads are regular instead of reverse, dip switches probably have to be changed since combustion of NG is not as hot. Maybe different sensors. Pressures are lower with NG.

Need conversion of lp to propane on a Bradford 50 gallon hot water.......


1) Do you mean NG natural gas to propane?

2) Most companies do not support gas-type conversion, especially with modern FVIR-compliant heaters. New burner, gas control are required at minimum.

3) Contact Bradford White and include model number, serial number that appear on label on side of unit.

Came down stairs water heater off and pan filled with water


Copy following link for troubleshooting leaking water heater.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Leaking-water-heater.html

You posted question under propane gas heater.
Propane is heavier and air, and this type gas water heater should not be installed in basement (below grade) since gas leak can fill basement with explosive gas.
Water leak does not cause gas leak, so water leak is separate problem.
Recommended for propane safety: install gas detector close to floor near gas water heater
Regular Natural Gas heater, install gas detector higher on wall since NG is lighter than air and will rise.

Change orfis in water heater


Do NOT do that.
If you put LP gas to NG heater you can cause explosion.
Contact manufacturer and see if they sell conversion kit. Most do not.

Can the Rheem PTG2-42PVN be used with propane gas?


I believe PTG2-42PVN is natural gas.
Rheem site does not show that model number.
As a general rule, Rhemm does not recommend converting NG to LP and LP to NG
