water heater repair onion creek
Not long ago, the pilot light went out on my mom's hot water heater. I was taking a shower, i noticed the water wasn't sizzling hot. My mom told me there wasn't hot water for dishes either, and that's when we noticed the pilot light was indeed out. Now, it sounds like something quite easy to fix, but you should see three women and a man who doesn't know anything about plumbing fixtures or maintenance stand around observing a water heater trying to puzzle out how to ignite the pilot light.
It did look harder than it would seem. After it absolutely was lit and didn't remain on, we thought that there may be a bigger problem. The river heater after all is 2 decades old. So my cousin came up to check it out for us, and he started by trying to light the pilot light once more.
After giving it a go, he explained that he was confident that it was the thermal coupling that would have to be replaced. He told us it was a cheap part along with a cheap fix, so we all breathed a sigh of relief that people weren't having to face a whole new water heater installation at this time.
