water heater valve replacement
Hi all. I just discovered this forum and find it really informative. However, I am having a problem with my valves on my water heater. Two of the three valves spin freely, so I realize they need replaced. Currently, they must be locked shut because I can not get any water to my water heater, thus no hot water while camping. I need to know the best way to replace these valves, such as what tools are needed etc. Also, what is the best way to get the little metal clips off the piping that holds them in place? I would just take it in for service, but I really love doing these type of things myself so that I can learn. Thank you for any help.
