Answer: 
I have it under a gas water heater and no problems in the 6 wks I've had it. I did leave the filter off the bottom of my heater as I'm in Arizona where the garage gets hot and I wanted decent air flow.

Answer: 
It is plastic? I would imagine it would need to be metal for a gas water heater.

Answer: 
Because with a gas water heater, the flame is open to the bottom and may melt the plastic, or even worse, catch it on fire if something goes wrong. With an electric water heater, all heat is on the inside of the unit. No part of the outside should ever get hotter than the boiling point of water if something goes wrong.

Answer: 
sure -- but if your going to the trouble of getting it under and the heater already has a leak you need to replace the heater. It's going to come out fast one day and depending on where it's at you may have some serious problems.

Probably- the reason I say that is I had the part with me as we could not find a cap so I went with a plug.

Answer: 
They have everbilt brand rubber plugs that I used! For the 24 in drain pan the 1-5/8 x 1-5/16in everbilt black rubber stopper worked like a charm. They are like $3 or less for the stoppers and the pan is water tight. I got both in store but they are also online.

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good deal the drain pan fits nicely under the new Rheem water heater. June 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Catch Pan Just needed a pan should my hot water tank ever leak again. Might have got by with a 22" pan April 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It looks good I believe it is now a requirement for a drain pan to be installed with new water heaters. The access hole in this pan is useless unless your water heater is on a ledge. May 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by drain pan It is a plastic water heater drain pan that works well. April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Looks good The old hot water heater was replaced and it didn't have a drain pan. This one installs easy and works perfect as long as you put it under the hot water heater before you plumb it up. Being plastic I expect to be dead long before the pan rusts away. However, I will make a point of re-rating the pan if it wears out before I do. So check back in a few years and see how it's going. January 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect! I actually purchased this to go under my Christmas tree to protect my wood floor. The plastic is thick and sturdy. I purchased an Everbuilt black rubber stopper to plug up the hole in order to make it water tight. For this 24 in pan the 1-5/8in x 1-5/16in rubber stopper fits perfect. I plugged up the hole and filled it with water.. No leaks! It would definitely serve its purpose for a water as well. December 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Drain pan for new water heater I ordered this and a new water heater online and both were waiting for me at my Home Depot store. Everything was ready for me to pick up and the install of the pan was very easy to install because it was the right size. The pan is well-made, sturdy, and easy to work with. November 10, 2015
