Unexpected Projects: Water Heater

By Jeff | Jul. 31, 2012

If you’re keeping track, we’re closing in on about one new problem a week now. By the end of the year, we’ll be house repair pros!

This time it was the hot water heater that wasn’t working. Even after waiting for 5 minutes, the water was freezing! We’re very thankful the previous owners left us all the manuals for everything in the house, so we were able to look over and learn how to relight the pilot light on the hot water heater. From reading the instructions we a little uneasy about all of the “you can blow up your house” warnings, but we followed everything carefully, and on the second try, were able to relight the pilot light and get hot water!
