ESSENTIAL TIPS FOR WATER HEATER REPAIR
Fixing your water heater doesn’t have to be difficult. There are some basic things you can do on your own.
Before we get started, we want to mention the importance of safety. Turn off all water and gas lines to your heater before you start doing anything. Water flowing or gas leaking can make repairs tougher, and more dangerous.
It may take you a while to troubleshoot exactly what’s wrong with your heater, but we can give you some repair tips that can make the job easier.
FIND THE OWNERS MANUAL
An owners manual can help clear up a lot of problems. You may find that your issue can be fixed by simply adjusting a knob or setting on the heater. But you won’t know what needs to be done until you have the manual in your hands.
Some of you reading this may not know where the manual is, or you may simply have never gotten one. Don’t worry, the internet has everything you need!
Take a look at the make and model of your water heater (you can usually find this located on the back or side), then do a search for a manual. Most are uploaded online and can be downloaded as PDFs.
There are even websites that are devoted to instruction manuals.
Even if the manual doesn’t have a specific solution for your problem, it can give you in-depth information about parts and assembly.
Today it’s easier than ever to do repairs on your own because you have a wealth of knowledge literally at your fingertips.
Do you think you know what’s wrong with your water heater? Do a search for the problem with the phrase “repair” added to it. A quick search for plumbing repair can reveal thousands of videos about water heater repair that can be your guide.
Be sure to look for guides that come with videos. These videos can show you exactly how to do certain steps and can walk you through the repair process.
Just make sure that you search around, don’t go with one source. If it seems like everyone is advocating the same simple fix, it’ll work for you.
