The door would not even shut to the room.
This heater has been like that for 7 years. The thermo was set to the max. 75gal nat. gas. The homeowner said after the plumber left she tried to shut the door but it wouldn't. It was hitting the relief line. That is not the reason the relief is kinked,the bad kink is near the backside of the heater and not in a location that would be caused by the owner trying to force the door shut. Crappy work done with copper. Who would have thunk
I asked why didn't she call him back right then.....said she felt sorry for him because he was real fat and slow
I immediately dropped that conversation and went to work giving her options to correct the problem.
