    This gas water heater was installed April 2015. It’s a Reliance brand. I was having intermittent leaks from the hot tap, and this weekend decided to take it apart and retape the tap. When I got it apart and cleaned the old tape off, the threads look corroded or damaged.

    Is this a bimetal corrosion? Is my Teflon tape bad? Help. I need this fixed today.

    And just let me say, your image size limits are crazy small… This is attempt number 4.

    I don’t see a rubber washer in the flex line. Put one in, then use six wraps of Teflon and tighten it up.

    This would be very helping in terms of diagnose and fixing the water heater.
