    There's no popcorn sound. I just feel like it is very loud when it comes on compared to the old unit. We never could hear the old Bradford white unless you were in the basement (1999 install). This...

    Thanks!

    I don't remember seeing this problem until this month, would that rule out sweating the copper tubing while attached to the 3/4 nipples exiting the water heater?
