This is what i had to deal with today. (the wall with the switch and the tank have about 14" in between)
They decided to make a finished basement apartment about 5 years ago soooo... I had to drain 15yr old 75 gal hot water heater that was so filled up with sediment that it would'nt drain, had to keep stikin a piece of wire in the tank to get the flow goin, and move it so i could remove the old (oversized) furnace. Install new furnace & complete new A/C unit, & re-install that shi!#y tank. Talk about a long day!!! On top of that there was only 2 wire going to the furnace from T-stat on second floor...had to pull 4 wire...and of course the 2 wire was jammed in the wall or snagged on something, took about an hour to figure out a new route.( Did'nt take any after pics because i thought......WHY?) Overall the job came out great
This is how they used to do the gas back in the day...i guess.
Anyone notice what's wrong with this picture?
