Default Hot Water Tank Removal

Hi, how do you remove the hot water tank 2400 scr. I filled the fwt and turned the pump on and water comes out to inlet lines of the fittings. Thanks

I'm not sure what an 'fwt' is. It sounds like you have an issue with the fittings, not the tank itself. I would first make sure the vent valve toward the top of the hot water tank is closed. I would then make sure the drain toward the bottom is closed.

If the problem persists, I would get a new set of connectors. I'm not sure what area you live it, but they have a tendency to crack if not winterized properly.

Hi Shrew, fwt is fresh water tank. Yes I closed the bottom drain and the relief valve, I'll look for the vent valve at the top is closed. The unit is closed so can't really see the fittings, good to hear they aren't welded in. I live in Ontario Canada so yes we have freezing issues. Thanks for the info.Murph

Relief valve and 'vent' valve are the same thing. The connection fittings are exterior. Where is it leaking from? Inside? Not much to be done about that.
