Son of Samurai

In this short excerpt from one of our many technical webinars, the Samurai explains the mechanism behind how these gas valves work. Not only will it give you a clear idea of the technology behind these common parts, but it will give you insight into why smart techs troubleshoot these appliances the way they do.
