Hi there!

Do your neighbours have water?

If yes, then you need to find the main supply pipe into your building.

Either it has been turned off by someone, or a safety valve has turned off.

Please reply with a little more information before rating.

Thank you.

Thawing frozen water pipes


Look underneath home and try to find/follow water supply pipe. If it is exposed you will probably have to wrap it with heated tape to prevent future freezing. When thawing pipe open a faucet in the home and keep an eye on the pipe. If there is a crack in the line, once the water starts to flow you will see it spraying/leaking out, and the pipe will have to be replaced. If there is no leakage, you are lucky.

I was curious as to when my Rheem 40 gallon electric water heater was purchased and installed. I fear it may be on it's last legs. The serial number is RH0198BO4391. Model # is 71-40D B. It is the...


I think that your water heater was made in 1991 so it would be 20 years old. This is not uncommon for a electric heater but you are probably right about it being on it's last legs. The good news is that a electric water heater for use in a manufactured home is no different then other building types so they are not more expensive. Gas water heaters for manufactured homes cost anywhere between 150.00-200.00 more than standard. Thank you.

Where is the outside water tap turn-on/off under the trailer on a 1997 fleetwood doublewide?


On almost all mobile homes the main water supply will either be under the home and usually right underneath the water heater or behind a access panel in a wall close to the water heater or washer hookup. Thank you.

Hot water temp seems ok but flow has got slower. Does not appear to be a problem with the diverter valve, as it is not bypassing. (this valve was changed last year) Mains cold pressure is fine. Boiler...


The last sentence in the description of the problem, says it all.

I too, have had the problem, Tony. But, in addition, to the hard water,I discovered something that I didn't know. In our home's water system (our home is 30 years old) , someone prior to our ownership had installed a 6' section of galvanized pipe (possibly a repair). If you're not familiar with galvanized pipe and what hard water (High iron content) will do, it rust from the inside out. This 6" piece was almost totally clogged with rust and corrosion. This is also the effect it can have on a water heater. Especially, the sacrificial anode rod inside the heater (if it's an electric water heater) That's why it's so important to drain and flush your water heater, at least once a year.

I mention all of the above, because you very well, may be experiencing the same issue. The way to resolve it requires a little detective work on your part. Check you piping to see if any is galvanized pipe, rather than copper or PVC. Keep in mind, that the sink fixtures, may very well may be galvanized, if your home is 30 or more years old. If you find any, I highly recommend replacing it, before something goes wrong in the middle of the night or while you and your family are away from home. If you hard water is a result of using a well, place a whole house water filter on the main incoming water line. It does not have to be a charcoal filter. And to make your water more palatable, install an automatic water softener. For me, it was all money well spent.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

How do I set my thermostat so that it doesn't keep going off and leaving me with no hot water .I have a Honeywell digital thermostat.


The problem is not your thermostat. It is the person who told you that your AC would be your sole source of hot water. The purpose of heat recovery is to ASSIST with hot water production and reduce the current used by your water heater. The only time your AC heats your water is when it is working to cool (or if it's a heat pump, cool and heat) your home. Turn your water heater back on and let your AC help keep the water hot. It's not supposed to do it alone.

WATER LEAKING


Water should come out of the back of a wind unit when it is humid out, usually a drain hole. If water is leaking inside from a window unit, check that the outside drail hole is not clogged or maybe it is not tilted downward enough outside (Usually a very slight tilt down toward the outside to help the water drasin out the back outside). Also, if you have excess water forming, you may need to clean the coil. For central air units water should be drippng outside the home via a pipe or tubing and if the drain tube or pipe is clogged with scum that forms inside the pipe water will back up and overflow in the house near the heater/air conditioning unit. Also, some units have a pump to pump the water out and it may not be working.

I have an Everstar portable A/C unit that I purchased from Home Depoy 2 months ago. It works fine but it has begun to stink. How do I stop the odor?


There is water(condensation) that has built up in the unit and is stinking due to the water is growing mildew. Is the air conditioner condensation line plugged? If this is a window unit also make sure that it is level or not all the water will drain out and cause this odor. The odor should diminish after the water has completely dried out.
