Tried to replace the thermocouple on my hot water heater. Everything went south from the start. The last person who jiggerd with the hot water heater decided to be a hero and wrenched every connection so tight it was nearly impossible to get them off. I think they also installed the piolet tube using the nut that belongs on the burner end of the unit. Anyway, In trying to disconnect the piolet tube I punctured it. So, tomorrow I’m going to take an ice cold shower and pay some guy what I imagine will be an ungodly sum to do the job right.
Anyone have an idea as to what it should cost me to replace the piolet tube, make sure the thermocouple is in place and put everything back where it belongs? Just looking for a ballpark guess, I won’t hold you to it. Thanks.
