How do i eliminate moisture from an underground,natural gas galvanized gas line. I have no gas flow to my garage or my 75k garage heater.


Check on the local codes governing gas piping, but it would be my suggestion to consider abandoning the existing line IF you are sure there is a compromise to its integrity allowing water to enter. I would think if water ENTERS...then GAS has to be able to excape. It'd be a lot of condensation that's required to either just block the line or freeze and block the line. If it freezes due to lack of depth, it's going to rupture anyway sooner or later necessitating replacement.

At the above ground location before where it goes subterranean, (after checking the codes), consider installing the appropriate brass fittings to then allow a new underground copper line to be installed by attaching by means of an iron pipe to flare adapter in the appropriate size. Then utilize type L soft roll copper to lay in the new trench to the garage and tie it into the existing line inside the wall. Type L is the thick walled soft tubing and can be used in many locations for gas, whereas Type M soft copper tubing is thin walled tubing for use with water and not gases. Your area may not allow it. That's what building inspectors are for.

Before proceeding, MAKE SURE your line is in fact the problem then double check with a local authority whether or not copper materials are recommended along with brass fittings for the connections. IF the original and suspected problematic gas line is for sure GALVANIZED it is not in any way approved for use with natural gas. It is probably black iron pipe.

Gas Control Valve replacing!


Shut off the water and gas to the heater. Drain the heater. Disassemble the gas line to the heater starting at the Union and working to the gas control. Disconnect thermocouple, burner and pilot tunes from the bottom of the old gas control. The old control will screw out of the front of the heater. Grab the entire housing of the control and twist counterclockwise to remove. Perform new gas control install and connections in reverse. Remember to apply at least 4 wraps of Teflon tape on all threads before assembly. (Teflon paste may be used) Do NOT put any sealant on the thermocouple,burner tube or pilot tube connections (these are compression connections, make them fairly snug.) upon completion, fill heater, turn gas back on relite and check for water or gas leaks

My natural gas jandy LRZ is showing the error


that probably was the manual bypass if bad heater overheats or if it had a copper line the syphon tube might be plugged

Pilot won't light.


If you try but the pilot won't stay lit, you probably have a bad thermocouple. It is a small probe located in the pilot that has either two wires wrapped in a metal jacket going to the gas valve or one copper tube also going to the gas valve. To get to it, you will have to open up the burner chamber and drop it out. Take the thermocouple to a good hardware store or fireplace shop for a new one.

Coil is broken. can it be soldered together?


Good day,
As a rule copper/steel yes. Aluminum no. However, if aluminum, wait a while, some guy may be weaving magic out there as I post this.
Small holes can be epoxied, but your describing a complete break.
2 brass unions and a new section of pipe might be made to work, but the ferrules in the union are copper, and copper and aluminum don't like each other, eventually leading to failure.

Takes a long time to heat water. Brand new Ge 50 gallon water heater. Once heated it right temp,just a long time to heat it and then won't maintain hot water. Is gas line to small? 3/8 copper line. Thanks


If you are using a 3/8" copper line for your gas, get it replaced ASAP. It will fail. 1/2" Black Iron is required with natural gas. 50 gallons is a lot of water to heat. Look on the heater label for the recovery rate.
