Our hot water heater is not working. Do we call a plumber or electrician?

You can call either. My choice for an electric water heater would be the electrician. For a gas water heater it would be a plumber who is gas certified.

How to regain lost water pressure after replacing hot water heater anode?

This important part is right at the end, you have a well!! It sounds like you may have run it dry? Check the well and the pump first. The rest is stop valves and pipes to the tank and beyond and not likely to be causing issues. Your sediment issues and problems with the anode is also due to using well water which is nearly always loaded with minerals..

How long can I leave Bradford White gas water heater on Low setting with the house water main turned off

With gas appliances and heaters I would turn the gas off. When you are there you are opening a closing doors and windows and creating air flow. When your home is locked up, gas could build up, especially if a pilot light went out. 2 or 3 days, no problem but anything longer than that, turn it off, or get a house sitter.

Why is my Eternal hybrid tankless water heater leaking from the bottom?

After a year of trying to correct the problems, Grand Hall, the parent company of Eternal Water Heaters, ceased operations in North America leaving their customers without warranty coverage, part replacements and technical resources Unfortunately you may have to replace it. No one can tell you without inspection unit. I found this link with the same problem, have a look https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWmkeyw_hsU ..

How do I get the water heater going so we can have hot water

  1. Open the up the door or the cover over where the pilot light is accessed and also located at . The pilot light will be located under the gas valve and some water heaters just have an open gap instead where you can see the pilot lights burner is.
  2. Using either a flashlight or a headlamp to find out where the burner i located inside. 2 small gas tubes will lead to it. You will want to watch it as you are working.
  3. Turn the gas knob to "Pilot,"and then press and hold it down. This will begin to start the flow of gas so you can light the flame. Some water heaters do have a separate button for pilot mode, mostly it will be a colored red one which you will have to press and hold.
  4. While still holding the gas down light that pilot. Some water heaters do have a red or black igniting button and some others will have to be lit manually with a lighter than is longer.
  5. When the flames do ignite continue to hold the gas knob or button down for a full one minute. Then slowly release it and make sure that the light is still lit and is still on.
  6. Turn the gas knob to On and then listen for the distinct "whump" or whooshing sound of the main burner igniting.
  7. Replace the cover.

Harmony Efel Heater. How do I fix a leaky water boiler in my heater please?

Question edited for clarity. A lot depends where the leak is? If it is from a fitting, you can replace the fitting or even try tightening it. If it is in the heat exchanger unit, it it best to replace it with a new one. If one leaks start in the steel, another will follow. https://www.google.com/search?q=harmony+efel+heater ..

With no hot water flowing, the heater is losing a lot of cold water. Where is it going?

This is an on demand water heater, often called an instantaneous hot water heater. If you are losing water from the delivery (faucet) side, the boiler should be alight. Wherever the leak is from, you must be able to see it, unless you are on a water meter and observing the loss there. In which case you have a broken service pipe between the meter and the house. https://www.google.com/search?q=21VP50E-1+water+heater https://www.google.com/search?q=21VP50E-1+water+heater+losing+water ..
