    Awww, come on,,,, buying and installing a new water heater is hardly any
    different than buying and and installing any other kind of a home
    apppliance.There is nothing to it but to do it.A city permit? Forget it!

  2. All my plumbing is PVC, except the well casing. The people I bought
    the place from waited till the old well was totally useless, and there
    is 1/8" of rust on the walls of the PVC. Every time the system, is
    deperssurized, I get VERY rusty water, unless I flush it, as described.

    prove it.

  3. Who knows? They probably overlook it, thinking that everyone already
    knows about it. People who are too close ot any subject tend to mitt
    important details, because they think everyone knows THAT about the
    job. I rewrote a lot of test procedures where I worked, because of the
    engineering department doing the same thing. You had to train each tech
    on each job, because so much stuff was left out, or just plain wrong.
    Eventually, the system was changed to peer review the documents on the
    test floor before changes were approved.

    Hello Donna, you seem to have learnt quite a surprsing amount for
    someone who has was a novice just a few weeks ago and who does not
    have a background in mechanical engineering.

    I'm impressed.

    Or i would be impressed if I could believe it but I am afrain I can't
    beleieve it.

    What did you say was your line of work?

    If you have time when you're not posting extended posts to a "quick
    and basic" question?

    Thanks for the kind words Michael.
    I think it bothers them that anyone could learn as much as I did from you
    guys and that we could solve the problem together, even though it took a

    Here, for example, is my picture today where I finally got the courage to
    take the blue dishwasher solonoid apart and you guys were right! The filter
    was completely clogged with sand!

    Without your advice, I would never have been able to know what to take
    apart to find the problem!

    I hope, by posting the pictures and describing what we've learned together,
    that the next person reading this who has a clogged dishwasher after doing
    a water heater repair, will know exactly what to do!
