    I'm jealous over the solder joints, picture perfect.

    Use a small tip and put the heat further back on the joint. Use small amount of flux and use your finger to flick the bean on the bottom

    There is a vacuum relief and a prv. I didnt need the vacuum relief because my heater is lower than all my pipes. But rheem will void the warranty on the tank if removed.

    The tank is polybutylene and if it were to be in a vacuum from someone draining it wrong or a siphoning effect if installed in a penthouse, it could crack the tank

    Interesting to know it uses a gasket seal, i was wondering how they would connect since the whole thing is plastic. The 0.2 degrees per hour heat loss rating is pretty insane on those Marathons. Pretty sure teflon isn't going to do jack on a gasket seal, good work using the torque wrench. Most common failure of gasket seals is gasket/o-ring being pinched by overtightening.
