Water Heater Repair

    Is your water heater giving you trouble? Some flue trouble can blow out the pilot light. Check the flue for back draft with a match. Light the match, and then blow it out. As it smokes, place the match by the flue opening. If the soot is pulled in the flue your heater is drafting properly. The thermocouple, the little guy the pilot heats, can go out spontaneously, if the pilot won't light and the gas pressure is normal, check any other gas fired appliance in the home, than it can be repaired. If the water heater tank is not leaking, typically it can be repaired for around one hundred dollars. Compared to a 600$ replacement!
