This week we cover some great tips for water heaters. There have been some big changes in gas water heaters. They now have a flame arrestor and a filter to prevent explosions and fires. You now have to keep these parts clean to prevent the pilot light from going out. You no longer have a traditional thermocouple on many water heaters.

We talk about some great routines to keep your water heater safe. It is amazing that a water heater can explode if you don't check your relief valve regularly.

We explain what an expansion tank will do for your water heater and appliances.
