Water Heater Flame Jumper
My water heater does NOT have an adjustable air shutter on the tube from the propane orifice to the burner.
Most of the time, the flame behaves as if there's too much air. During windy conditions, the burner struggles to stay lit. I often must create some sort of makeshift wind blocker to enable the hot water heater to run properly.
I've thought of using metal foil tape to kluge an adjustment to the air intake in the tube. The foil tape could make the opening slightly smaller, and a bit of trial and error could lead to a better overall flame performance.
But before I engage in such antics, I wonder if I might be able to simply buy a replacement tube that has an adjustable air shutter. Has anyone else encountered this? Is there a good solution?
Thanks in advance.
