    Rich...did I just watch you go through ALL the trouble of changing out a water heater WITHOUT actually changing out the water heater???? The nasty old one with shiny new fittings????

    You can save enough annual energy cost on a relatively clean efficient modern tank to offset the cost. But cash flow is the thing! You might sell your house before breaking even...

    Our house has a combination water storage tank/heater that has solar and oil/gas heater coils and auxiliary electric heater. They have a flange near the bottom that you can take off and scoop out the sediment with your hand. Did that at 8 yrs + replaced anode and it's good for another 8-10 years. It'll likely last at least 20 years.

    @Mitchell D It looks like it's probably in a basement, so lower than where the water needs to go. Still, he could have used a pump.

    This is what rich is demonstrating. Repair than replace the whole water heater. Tesla dealer would rather replace everything. And the car owner may as well buy another Tesla.

    rich, i just watched your dr frankenstein video and you have changed my mind on buying a tesla. it was the fact that tesla wont support people who are out of warranty or the ability to buy anything from them that did it. i love my freedom and its not worth putting a leash on me, that is the issue. ( like apple). so thanks for the informational vids and for those that are considering. and i do support you . all my best . jim dent. and a reply from you to get your point of view. thanks sir.

I do photography on the side and do carper cleaning and mitigation as my main job but unfortunately its hard because people ask me for pictures and projects but Im always working on the carpet side so i really cant that much. I love photography but I help support my parents somehow. Im the only one they have to help them so my photography has to wait. If you don't believe me you can check out my IG barreda_o

    For future reference, ideally you shoulr wrap the teflon tape around clockwise (on right hand threads) looking from the end. This is so it's less likely to unwind as you tighten the pipe, nut, etc. RichE, San Diego

    Actually it’s win. You opened the door for “right to repair”. They can’t handle fixes an rebuilds, BUT they can let 2nd or 3rd parties do it. This may also lead to “getting parts” to do the repairs. This is the exact same problem with Apple.

    FYI, the tape always goes on the same direction as you tighten the fitting, that way you keep the tape in place as it tightens. You will have no leaks.

    quick tip about the water heater : empty your water heater every year , second thing you should do : replace the anodes in the tank ( here your anodes are shut from the looks of it ) that way the whole thing wont rust ... including the pipes. tip number 3 when you open a pipe remove the filter cap on the sink spout so garbage doesn't accumulate there ( you can then just open the tap till water is clear of debris. )

    I can't believe you reused the old water heater. If you saw how corroded the hot water line was, can you imagine what the inside looks like? You need a new tank and a water softener if you are getting that much corrosion on the output. I know it costs more than just the fittings, but the $300 it would have cost for a replacement tank is going to be far less than the doctor bill when someone gets sick.

    Did changing the nipple fix the leak? 90 percent of time leaky HW heater is the tank rotting out on top. You don't have a dielectric fitting between the galvy and the copper. Get some HW flex hose connectors as they have plastic bushings/washers that separate the metals so you don't have galvanic response = the nasty corrosion you had on old fitting. Please wrap your teflon tape in the direction that will tighten it as you screw on the fitting. Also put a pan under your HW heater with an alarm so when it starts to go you get notified and don't have flood, unless your planning on parking your tesla in the basement and making a video on how to create a flooded tesla...

    Sounds like a great idea for an EV shop. It would be good to see how this could get started and how the investors or contributors could get some ROI. It may seem like trouble, but it seems like there could be some benefit from them and for you. Your natural talents and drive can be to show how EV cars are accessible to the public. Ideally, maybe you could design an over all business model and EV leaning philosophy so that you can make and develop a successful method to get a shop in every state in the country in the long run. At the very least you seem to need at least one or more apprentices, or researchers to help.
