Thread: no draft

  1. #1

    no draft



    Got a call for no hot water, customer had a small electrical fire the night before and fire dept shut off gas to the house. I went to light pilot and I noticed the plastic rings around the water pipes that distinguish hot and cold were melted. Checked draft with a lighter and had none. When I pulled the smoke pipe out of the chiminey I noticed that the person who installed water only busted a hole in the first wall of the block, and didn't go through the back wall. The water heater was installed 3 years ago.

    Wow, it's a wonder it made it three years before a fire. And a wonder the owners aren't dead from carbon monoxide poisoning.
    " dirty filter??!!! Buts its only 2 years old" You never learn everything you need to know is this industry

    I guess they figured the block cell was a good place to vent.
