I could also add that the new car had a 2 year had a 2-year guarantee, and after they could't fix it in 2 years, they said the guarantee had run out and wouldn't try anymore. The repairs until then were free.
Now for a senior moment. I know i got the car during the summer after my 3rd year in college, because I moved every year in college and I know where I parked, That was the summer of '67. And I know a few months earlier, April or May, I drove him to Philly to catch the plane for Viet Nam.
But my brother bought the car when I started college and he started his internship. He enlisted in the army and was allowed to finish his internship and residency**, a total of 4 years, so it should have been after June '68 when he reported for duty. So a year is unaccounted for.
**The army needs specialists, so even if they need doctors, when there was a draft, they can draft them, but they're glad to wait until my brother finished his radiology residency. The Berry Plan. Ended when the draft ended in 1973.

Yeah, it is. It implies it's something about the house. Whatever the product, they do occasionally make a string of bad units, maybe on the same assembly line but in that case there would, hopefully be either a recall notice (if it's a safety issue which this isn't.) or an advisory saying how to fix all the bad units.
But they don't send the advisory to everyone, only factory authorized repair companies (and perhaps registered owners but most people, including me, never register, even if there is a card to do so**). And in theory, maybe not even (all of) them. Orr maybe the conpany got it and didn't read it. Or maybe the company just lists your brand in its ad, but doesn't claim to be factory authorized.
I would google the make and model to see if some advisory made it to the web, but there is plenty of stuff that never gets to the web. I'd google with the entire model number, and with the first n characters of the model number, certainly the part before a hyphen, and maybe just any set of the first 3 characters or more, 3, 4, 5, 6. Google is pretty good about finding partial matches, but it's sill to rely on google.
And if I didn't find exactly what is needed, I'd call the company. (I'd call them anyway)
But if there is no advisory on this model, it sounds like it's something special about the house, to have the same problem with two WH.
**And they may well not send to owners. They don't want to hurt their reputation when most of the units will work fine. The supermarket won't give sale prices unless I register, but I don't want them knowing where I live and what I eat. The one good reason for them to know my phone number would be to call me if I'd bought something that was recalled for safety. But THAT they don't do.

1.2 volts and a lead acid cell puts out 2 volts. Connect numerous thermocouple cells in series to make a thermocouple battery and you have a thermopile that puts out whatever voltage you design it for. Thermocouple voltage depends on the 2 metals paired together as well. There are 8 "standard" thermocouples, J, K, T, S, B, E, R, and N.
See http://www.ni.com/white-paper/4231/en/ The vast majority of so-called "thermocouples" used for gas pilot valves are really thermopiles. Thermocouples are used more on gas valves that operate with annelectrical supply (generally a 24 volt transformer) Gas fireplaces that will work when the power goes out, and most water heaters, use a thermopile to generate enough power to operate the gas valve directly.

The seat is no good if you're still standing. You have to sit on it.
But like I said, I prefer baths too. I don't think I want any jets of water, though. I just want peace and quiet (and tv).

Besides those expensive medically certified shower stools, when I had had surgery, I was just going to use an average lawn chair. They last a lot longer if you don't leave them outside, but they are meant to handle rain water and other water well, so unless one is so heavy a lawn chair won't hold him I'd have no problem using a lawn chair in the shower.
(I was going to do just that until I decided I could stand for 5 minutes and that was enough for a shower, when after 4 months I could go back to taking baths. So I had no chair.).

I'll bet they're expensive.

I think getting a tub out is pretty easy. They cut it into pieces and take each piece out.
Getting a new one that is just as big in is more work.

Even those bathtubs with doors have, I think, a built-in seat. So, if I'm right it's not like you can sit down on the bottom and then scoot down until your neck is under water. I don't know how much one can get under water, to his chest maybe? I'm guessing. Has anyone seen one of these?
