    Cool How not to repair your water heater

    I have not been around since jan of last and I was suprised when I logged on and
    actually accessed this forum.... Either I have snuck on or was never banned in the first place......

    I had to post this picture of what not to do to your water heater..

    this fellow basically flooded out the second floor of his home after his repair
    broke loose after two weeks......
    .

    EVERYONE ENJOY..

    Have any detail on what the guy did? Maybe he should have had some of the miracle stuff ole Billy Mays used to tout! Maybe he was lucky it just flooded the house. Good to see you back. I don't know anything about your being banned from the forum. The only one I can recalled being banned was that crazy-ass redneck. Can't recall his name off hand.

    Huh? Even I don't know who that would be.

    So someone patched a leaking tank, thinking it would last much longer then the tank that had already sprung a leak?
    Now that guy could be called crazy.

    Guess the guy I'm think of wasn't banished, but he got cut off by so many users, he finally quit, and no, Hillbilly Man, it wasn't you.
