Troy: All right. Troy with Champion Plumbing. I’m in Bloomington again. And we got a call for a water heater that was really corroded. We came out, took a look at it. Quite a few things going on here. This is what the top of it looks like, and we followed it up, up, up, up, up, up. Get the light up there. There’s the culprit of what’s going on. Unfortunately, it’s been going on for so long, that the water heater is going to be needed to be replaced, as well. So, I guess just a heads up, right? Take a look at your plumbing system, make sure everything looks good. This happens to be in a dark corner. It is what it is.

We’re going to be replacing the water heater with this one. The venting was good, four inch venting. We have to replace that fitting anyway, that goes to their humidifier valve. This gas valve, again, it’s one of these old ones with a packing nut on the back of it, they’ll leak in the off position so we’re going to be replacing that. Water valve looks good. So another unique situation where you had a few different things going on with this one, but we will hammer this one out. Probably take us about two hours. I got a guy with me here. Matt is onsite with me, so we should have her up and running in no time.
