By the time he was done I had a much better understanding on how my water heater worked, and what the possible issues could be
A month ago I didn’t know anything about plumbing, water pipes, or heaters. A lot can change in a short period of time. Thanks to Youtube and other online resources I have taken a crash course in home renovations. I do all of this because I am strapped for cash, and simply can’t afford to pay a professional to handle the work for me. The problem started simply enough, with a decrease in my water pressure and my water temperature. I took a hot shower that was only luke-warm, no matter how much I cranked the knob. After a cursory inspection of my equipment, I determined that the water heater was no longer working properly. With no way to pay for professional help, I tracked down an online video featuring a tech inspecting my exact model of water heater. I sat on the floor next to my water heater, phone in hand, and followed along with his every movement. This HVAC tech was a little boring, but went into exhaustive detail about each and every element of the device. By the time he was done I had a much better understanding on how my water heater worked, and what the possible issues could be. It turns out that this problem was something I could fix temporarily, but I was going to need a new water heater before too long. I have heard that the tankless water heater is the best on the market, so perhaps that’s what I need to buy. For now, I just need to get the old water heater up and running again.
