    I'm trying to change an immersion in a water heater. The problem being the box spanner I have is not deep enough, and I can get onto the bottom of the immersion however due to the sides of the water heater I can't get my hands onto it to turn it. Is there an immersion spanner that has a longer box part of it so that I can get onto the arm underneath the water heater?

    sounds like it`s @ the bottom of the tank - leave it full of water for the initial loosening- or risk crumpling the tank :idea:
