Hi,
I'm new here but I'm hoping someone can help me with a problem.
Our Triangle Tube phase 3 HW heater has been making a very foamy and smelly (like diluted machine oil smell) hot water since yesterday. We have a well but the cold water is fine. We use propane gas.
Doeas anyone know what's going on?
Thanks!
Annette

Hi, we're having the same problem with our Triple Tube Phase III water heater. Foamy, slightly smelly hot water and clear, smell free cold water. I'm just wondering if you ever found out what was wrong with the unit? I would just like to know if it can be fixed, or if it needs to be replaced. Thanks!
