Water Tank

I was going to try to do a “Welcome Home Escort PGR mission today from the Pittsburgh Airport to the Morgantown, WV area.

A family friend is an older woman who is taking care of her elderly mother who is in very poor condition and needs constant attention.  The friend called yesterday that there was water on the floor all around her water heater.  It was leaking badly.  Today, I took my b.i.l. with me and put in a new water heater for her. It was a several hour job because the new tank had slightly different dimensions on the height and position of the valve and the water connections.  But, it went more smoothly than I expected because a water heater install kit was available. It contains flex pipes and I had the rest of what I needed.

As I was leaving, my brother discovered that the furnace was not working in the house across the street, so I have to work on that. I got it working enough to heat it until I can do a minor fix to help it light.
