    : How can I fix the problom of the water sitting on the bottom, inside of the washer? Any help, thanks!It may be a clogged air-brake. Located near the faucet, usually has a removable cap. Debris from washer get trapped and has same symptoms as bad valve or pump.

    Mine lasted almost exactly 5 years. It blew two weeks ago. If it is electric and you do not replace the sacrifice rod, they will blow out the plug on the front of the water tank. Hopefully you will be home when it blows. This is not piculiar to Smith but with all electric heaters. My GE replacement heater is gaurenteed for 10 years, but it has two rods. The plumber states it is the same as the first heater, but has two rods to make it last twice as long. Replace the rod every 4 1/2 years and save yourself some problems.

    : are A.O.Smith hot water heaters highly rated? Is it a good product and does the company stand behind the product?If I had to buy a new water heater, I would buy a Rheem or Ruud with five-year warranty. Then I would get a secondary anode and install it (in the hot water outlet). This would give me a minimum tank life of 10 years (15 – 18 average). AND at the end of the 10 years, I would replace the primary anode (15 – 20 minute task) and get (at least) another five years of tank life. And never have to worry about tank failure while I am out of town. GOOD LUCK!!

    I have two Rheem water heaters (40 & 65 Gal.). The contractor installed these STANDARD units with a five year warranty. My question: What would the normal life expectance be for these units. I dont want to experience a rupture. Need some educated advice if you dont mind. Thank you, RichardPS: Anode rod has never been replaced (should have, but did not realize this was recommended).

    : Sunday the 28th the water from the faucet was extremely hot, : and I could have enjoyed some Colombian coffee. The next : day, Monday, there was no longer any hot water. It is only : a year old. What could it be?Joe,Sounds like the upper thermostat. There should be a reset button that can be pushed to reset. However, the thermostat may be bad, causing the high temperature in the first place. Replacement is fairly easy.http://www.terrylove.com/wh.htm Water heater informationRegards, Terry Love

    I shut off the electric switch on my water heater because I thought that the heat pump would heat the water in the tank, should I turn the switch back on???? and why should the elctric be on if there is more than enough hot water being generated by the heat pump??? I reside in Florida.
