    What happened to this water heater?

    This 40 gal. electric Rheem water heater is only 4 years old. They called me because the tank was leaking. I've never seen one look like this. The lower element and thermostat almost look like they were on fire but the wires weren't burned at all. Can't tell if it's just from the water or if it...

    Replacing the leaking air vent on a garden hose faucet

    Sometimes the air vent on a hose faucet will leak when using the hose. It's an anti-siphon device to prevent water from the hose from ever entering the pure water supply. You may notice that your outside faucet has a cap behind the handle on the top of the faucet, with water that leaks out when...
