I'm desperate for help. We are in an area that got hit by devastating
floods, luckily ours wasn't as bad as some, we had 3 feet of water in
So the Natural Gas guys came out today and tried to turn on the water
heater and said it wasn't going to light because it had been
submerged. He said to replace the gas valve (?? I think is what he
said) and it has a tube at the bottom of it I know.
Does anyone know what I have to replace, is this something my hubby
can do? The water heater is 1 year old. :( this has been a very sad
and trying time for everyone around here, and of course insurance
doesn't cover floods.
Also, the guy pretty much said the same thing about our furnace too,
but he did say we'd have to get a hvac guy/girl out here to check it
over. The furnace is only about 2 years old, very expensive, top of
the line. :( Sooo sad and just devastating but I know it could've
been so much worse than it was so I guess I'm thankful at the same
I would truly appreciate any help I could get with this water heater
issue, and any other advice you all might have, and thank you ahead of
time - this is the first time I'm posting on google so I'm not even
sure how I'll find any responses?? I'll figure it out I'm sure.
Happy Father's Day to all the dads and moms that are dads out
