If you determine that you need to replace
your tank bolts because of a rusty bolt, or, which is more often the case, a corroded washer,
it’s fairly simple to do. You definitely need to drain the tank, get all the water
out of it. and then look down in here – you’ll see the head of the bolt, that’s actually
the screws here, the slotted top. And you’re going to want to hold it still with a screwdriver
or another flat item while underneath you loosen the bolts with your socket wrench.
So really, you’ll simply just reach under – or you may need someone to help you
but, it’s simply a matter of holding the head still while you ratchet out the bolts
from the bottom. And once you’ve done that, the tank lifts right off there – it’s not
that heavy when it’s empty, and you’ll just do everything in reverse. I would recommend
taking the bolts with you to the home center so you make sure you have the right size.
But that will take care of your problem.
