If the heater was flood by the high water, it not safe to operate until a qualified, professional service person has inspected it and repaired it. IF it can be repaired. Water reeks havoc on gas appliances. Stop trying to light it!

Basement was flooded and water cover electronics,


TURN OFF ELECTRICITY before touching gas or electric water heater this is or was flooded.

Replace flooded gas or electric water heater.
Warranty is void, all manufacturers say replace water heater, and even if parts are replaced, there is no guarantee that unit will work again.

High water in basement, the push button temp indicator reads both leds lite on both ends. i dont know who to reset


1) Call service technician.

2) If water heater flooded, contact insurance company for possible replacement coverage.

3) Manufacturer's suggest replacement of any flooded water heater.

4) Be very careful around wet or previously wet water heater.
Insulation inside tank will stay wet. Household electricity is grounded to water pipes that are connected to gas or electric water heater. Touching wet water heater can be fatal.

5) Read label on side of tank for product identification.
Read manual for possible part replacement.

My basement flooded and now my gas water heater


Was the gas valve under water? If so it must be replaced. If not, and you're sure you are holding in the button for at least 30 seconds after the pilot is lit, the pilot will need to be removed disassembled and cleaned. Also, the thermocouple may or may not be bad, replace it anyway (for the cost @ Lowes etc just not worth it).

Oil baseboard heat v electric baseboard heat.


Two 8 ft baseboards will heat this basement fine. You should eliminate any sources of flooding before you invest in refinished your basement.
