    My parents have a forced hot water heater with radiators. There is no heat going to the house. We checked pilot light is on. My father thinks it the house thermostat? Is there a thermostat in the unit? We have a Peerless Gas Boiler GEM 225 WC. Pictures look like Rmudder 10-30-2010, 09:09 PM...

    Had a local guy repair a broken pipe in bathroom. They turned the water off at the street and then turned the water off at the water heater. Hours after they left, my son went to take a shower and ran out of hot water. We checked both "faucets" on the water heater. Made sure they were both open...
