water heater


Hi jerry

You can buy a new hot water tank at any good building supply store, such as Home Depot, or you can go to a business that deals strictly with plumbing. Being as your tank is propane, you might have to search around a little, as they are not nearly as common as natural gas tanks. I do not know precisely what the difference is between them, I only know that they are not interchangeable. The tanks aren't hard to replace, but many jurisdictions require you to get a permit. If you aren't comfortable with the idea of doing the installation yourself hire a pro. Also, once completed, have a thorough gas leak check done, and I would also suggest you purchase a carbon monoxide alert, just in case the heater part of the tank is not properly vented to clear all the fumes out of the house.
Good luck

Gerry

No Problem jerry

Natural gas tanks are readily available in most locations. Same advice with regard to leak checks and carbon monoxide still apply.
