|In response to Re: leaking water heater|
That answer is not easy to give and it has nothing to do with your ability. The drain valve may be plastic and you have just as much of a chance of it unscrewing as you do for it to break off. If that happens, removing the stub in the water heater can be a challenge. Once the old valve is removed, it is just a matter of installing a 3/4" brass nipple and a female drain valve.
: Could someone advise me if repairing a leaky water heater is within my abilities? It leaks at the drain cock. (I've done a bit of "home plumbing" but have never tackled something like the water heater.) I appreciate any help anyone could lend on this.
