The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and stamps EVER.
Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals". Their stated reason for this policy "... the animals become dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."
from an excerpt by Paul Jacob in Sun City, AZ
I changed out a "Leaking" water heater yesterday, went to attach my garden hose to the drain, the drain fell off in my hand, found their "Leak" Luckily there was so much sediment in the thing that the hole was plugged and didnt spray me as the drain fell off. I have seen a few with markings similar to yours, I have had some which the gas control itself was leaking, lucky nothing else caught on fire!
Yep trailer. It was a sad install hot was plumbed in on the cold, it had a concentric vent, this heater wasn't setup for that, the 3" vent pipe was to short so they slid the 4" over the vent instead. Just embarrassing.
I have seen this a couple of times before. One was leaking at the Baso because it was loose and the other was leaking around the temp setting stem. More often I've found the burner tube nut loose, but I've never had one of those ignite.
They didnt have a vacuum breaker, I put a top feed in after. The venting was not done correct either, the exaust was to short so they ran the 4" combustion air pipe over the 3" ex. The ins wasn't called it was a rental with no insurance I bet. It was by far the worst install I have seen, i know it's hard in that small area but damn it was bad.
