Customer Testimonials For Portland Plumbing Plus

Clogged Storm Drain Pro

Andrew Harfield
Portland, Oregon
The rain caused storm drain to clog at our office and it started to flood the entire parking area. The rain continued after we closed and the office would have been flooded and properties damaged if I didn't stay back to get help. I  called a different plumbing company who came and snaked the storm drain but snaking didn't help , he called for a backup from his office and they sent another plumber with another hydro machine which still didn't work.
I called Portland Plumbing Plus and their plumber came out almost immediately and had the storm drain opened within 20 mins by snaking it with an industrial machine which looked more like the machine the other plumber first used without success. You can tell that this guy from Portland Plumbing Plus has some special skills with his machine, the rhythm and the way in which he tweaked the cable made the whole difference. He is without doubt the storm drain pro!

Question: My Water Heater Pilot Light Wont Stay Lit

Question
Yesterday my water heater went out and didn't come on, so I replace the thermocouple and the gas valve and the pilot now wont stay lit, but the old thermocouple was shorter than the new one, been the new thermocouple longer than the old one could that be why the pilot doesn't stay on?

Answer
The length of the thermocouple has nothing to do with the problem you're having. The longer thermocouple is the universal type with longer lead. Just uncoil as much lead as you need for the installation, then roll the excess in a tight roll and tuck it behind your gas tube.

I suspect that you didn't install the thermocouple properly. There are other possibilities though but if you didn't install the thermocouple properly against the pilot, it wont heat and open gas control valve.

I suggest that you do the following:
1. Make sure that the end of the thermocouple is raised at least 1/4 inch above pilot lit to heat properly.  Use a pair of pliers to bend pilot and thermocouple 1/4 closer to each other
2. While igniting the pilot, press down and hold the pilot button for 30 seconds. Pressing down and holding the button on gas control valve for 30 seconds allows the gas to enter pilot to heat thermocouple.

Other Common Problems Why Pilot Wont Stay Lit

  • No gas
  • Low gas pressure
  • Blocked pilot line
  • Faulty thermocouple - note that some thermocouples may have factory faults. So the one you just bought could be faulty.
  • Faulty thermostat
  • Air in gas line
  • Moth and dirt in gas line...
