H20 heater/ thermostat installgreenspun.com : LUSENET : The Plumb Truth : One Thread
I am installing a new thermostat on my hot water heater and the new part is a different size than the old one. Result, the wires do not reach the new thermostat. What can I do to remedy this? Can I extend the wires by using caps or will the heat from the tank cause problems? Thank you.
