    New water heater

    Installed a new water heater with expansion tank, new valves, and added a new 1/4” line to a new aprilaire 800. I temporarily ran the drain for the humidifier and haven’t ran the line for the PRV. Ran out of time in my own home. So no pictures of that right now. Haha. Expansion tank was filled to match PSI after reducing valve.

    Seems nice. Only had it in for 8 hours. I used a torque wrench on the hot side. It uses a rubber gasket to secure the male adapter. I also used teflon tape. Says not to use dope and no tighter than 35ftlb

    Looks nice, but I think the expansion tank is upside down.

    nice solder joints, what brand solder flux did you use ?

    I also use teflon tape on all of my threaded water connections, never thread sealant

    The rheem marathon has a lifetime warranty on the tank. Used to be lifetime on heater but now its 5 years and use titanium.





    I usually do dope, teflon, dope. The manual strictly said no dope on the threads. I still used teflon and torqued it to 26ftlb. The manual said no more than 35. They are like double union fittings with gaskets.

    Somewhat impressive coming off the air handler with a 45 and lining up the union. I would of opted for extending drop and elbowing in....

    I guess the guy was forced to use nipples as no threader..

    Flex line maybe......

    Yea. I didn’t have the right piece to do a 90*. So i 45d it. I refuse to use flex. I installed that furnace like 3 years ago.
