i believe it is the original that came with the house, so, 1996 manuf. year approx,.. i think its gas b/c it has a metal corrugated hose from the wall into it. . and its model # XXXXX 40 913... i believe. serial # XXXXX
what's the best way to test the elements? can i do it myself or do i need to call a technician?
i just re-inspected the unit. it appears to be electric. i also noticed something strange... on top, where the pvc pipes go into the unit, there is water at the junction of both pvc pipes around one of the other junctions. is this something i should be worried about? should i shut off the water supply to the unit and if so, how?
what's the procedure to getting a hot water unit? go to loses or home depot and shop it out or call a repairman and see what he has in stock or something different.. ? thanks, Mark
