    Are we going to see it on the wall of fame?

    We can typically buy a heater at a hardware cheaper than supplier. There excuse was big box had a large supply of tanks that weren't up to current code with safety's therefore were cheaper.

    I don't know if my shop does business at plumbing supply houses. I called the supply house we buy our commercial water heaters from. It's a 6 year natural draft. Nothing but a tank and a burner. Can't imagine they are all that different.

    I will make it a point to take some pics of failed dielectric unions and nipples and right along side of solid brass ones that show no signs of deterioration or galvanic corrosion. There are thousand of these nipples and unions all over the hospital. It very well could (and probably does) have something to do with local water supplies.

    Anyway 2sac, I'm glad you got it in and finally took a shower. I'm sure the people around you appreciate it.
    The picture in my avatar is of the Houston Ship Channel and was taken from my backyard. I like to sit outside and slap mosquitos while watching countless supertankers, barges and cargo ships of every shape and size carry all sorts of deadly toxins to and fro. It's really beautiful at times.....just don't eat the three eyed fish....
