Well Good Morning to you.

DENIED.


Would you like a hot shower.

DENIED.


before we had a small leak on the floor and found it to be the wet dry vac had leaked out (at lease we thought thats what happened). well a week later and this morning we now have most of the contents of the water heater on te floor. I shut off the gas, and water running to the unit, attached a hose and opened the drain to release the water into a drain.


how ($$$) painful is a new water heater (standard, not thenew instant on gas ) and install?

A decent 40 gallon water heater could run you between $600-$800. There are cheaper and more expensive, but that's up to you.

What's wrong with cold showers? They wake you up so you feel revived! I lived in a house with no gas for a semester and half.

I know the owner of a plumbing supply company.. I think technically they do not sell to unlicensed people (liability) but he gave me two for warranty replacements.. and we did it ourselves

We have a Rheem that's pretty top end (actually.. the one we had was the highest.. and i think the replacement he gave us was #2.. which kinda pissed me off) but.. in any case I think it was an 800$ unit and the replacement was 600 or 700$)

I think most of the home depot models are in the 300-500$ range
but costs to have it installed professionally will probably be equal to or greater than the cost of the hardware

I want to go tankless in the new place.. we will probably end up going some kind of hybrid solution though... Not sure though...
I understand the tankless ones break quite often..

I looked at a house a few years back that had 3 x 50g units all plumbed together

Serious?

What is the drawback?

I'm guessing, they want to run to many faucets at once.

How do you feel about the hybrids?

geez u people all shop at high end places with those prices u r posting up.

I got my water heater at menards for 300 and it had 9 year warrenty and the rod in the center that collects the extra crap that gets in the water to prevent buildup of calcium... Installation on these things are not rocketscience... U can have it installed in about an hour... Just make sure u get someone that helps you that knows what they are doing

...plus my gf was with me saying "omg slow down, slow down" and I was thinking "Lose annoying squalk box in passenger seat, afford more mods and have less weight in the car and on the back of the bike"...so i dumped her and I'm single again as usual...HERE KITTY KITTY!!!

Switching to a tankless water heater often requires re-plumbing the gas. The tankless units I looked at last year required more BTU/Hr than standard units - more than double if I remember, and that demand, along with my furnace, dryer and stove, is more than my meter is set up for, and in my case (my house is old and the piping strange) would have required changing the gas pipe from the meter to the heater & furnace. Check things out before you buy, or your installation costs may surprise you.
