    Well, I put a recorder on top of the WH, turned it on, and it heated the water, feels like the usual 150F, without making any abnormal noise.

    But he jumped up and yanked it, making it whip around.
    Taking hold of it on the tower side and slowly moving it towards the tower, OK,

    No pump turning my DHW pipes into radiant heaters here, and if I had it I'd turn it off in this weather.

    Makes sense.
    So why would it not make the noise for 6 months at that temp and then start making it?
