    Why warning labels don’t matter

    I didn’t even know what to say when I walked into a regular customers rental property and saw this... I was there for the furnace which was a whole other disaster but way safer than this... I guess this is how you turn a $500 water heater into a $500,000 insurance claim..... lol

    But it's a nice flat surface for storing stuff.


    Also, that water connection looks like a flexible gas connector but it's hard to tell because it's blurry.

    I think I figured it out... It’s a two stage water heater. When they’re taking multiple showers and the water heater can’t keep up with the demand and after it fires constantly for a half hour or so eventually the draft hood gets hot enough to melt the lighter fluid container thus dumping lighter fluid onto the burners and providing way more btus to help it recover quicker. Lol
