Changing the hot water mixing valve
The showers in my house were not delivering hot water quickly enough, so I called the rental water heater company -Reliance- to take a look. I was told that the mixer valve of the water heater is not functioning properly and I should get it replaced. Apparently Reliance is not responsible for that part.
1. Do I have to get a new mixer valve or can I clean the existing one and put it back?
2. Can an average person do this kind of job or is it a specialized task of a plumber?
i am generally good with such tasks and have all necessary tools.
Almost all problems in our lives can be traced back to a lack of knowledge.
