My son just moved into a house,and when the gas co. came out to turn on the gas, they wouldn't light the water tank because a valve wasn't up to code. Can I buy this valve and replace it myself? If so, can someone instruct me on how to do it? Thanks!
What wasn't up to code with it? How old is the water heater? May be more cost effective just to replace the complete unit rather than replace the valve.
I have never just replace the valve, although I pulled them off out of curiosity after pulling an old heater out. It is not really that hard. When reinstalling make sure you use gas tek or a similar product to check for gas leaks.
must be talking about a ball valve type gas cock or shut off for the gas. I can't tell you if it's a DIY or not. How much experence do you have with working with gas ? If you have none . Things could go very wrong for you
