2 bad Reliance water heaters?
Posted by Alan on July 10, 2001 at 01:36:51:
I am having bad luck with Reliance 50 gal gas Power Vent water heaters.

The first one developed a tank leak within 9 months of installation by a reputable plumber.

The replacement (under original warranty) was delivered with a leaky gas control. Reliance finally replaced the control, but it cost me $100 to have it installed.

In the 3 months since, the pilot light has gone out twice. There is nothing unusual in the basement (floods, hurricanes, etc) which would blow out the pilot.

The gas pipes are all new, and I'm not having problems with the range or hot water heating system (both gas).

Any suggestions? I'm so fed up, I'm ready to just junk it and buy a good quality replacement.
