Customer Questions & Answers

can this item be used for gas water heater? states for electric only! why not gas water heaters?

Asked by: gek121453
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.

Can this be used if the heater has a minor leak on the bottom?

Asked by: sthom512
Honestly, if your water heater is leaking you should go ahead and replace the unit. A small leak will get large big, and it's inviting a disaster. While this drain pan would theoretically contain the water and redirect it to a drain if one was available, it wouldn't really be a long-term solution.

Do they sell a cap for the pvc lead that gets screwed into the hole in the pan? I don't have a floor drain in that room.

Asked by: Steviek1
You can very simply make one out of a small piece of PVC with an end cap. I don't have a drain either, and that's what I did.

"P2801.5 Required pan. Where a storage tank-type water heater or a hot water storage tank is installed in a location where water leakage from the tank will cause damage, the tank shall be installed in a galvanized steel pan having a material thickness of not less than 0.0236 inch (0.6010 mm) (No. 24 gage), or other pans approved for such use. Listed pans shall comply with CSA LC3." "Or other pans approved for such use. Listed pans shall comply with CSA LC3." lol... lawyer wording.... :) My taking is yes, this pan will comply.... I think they are getting at you don't use your wife's baking sheet :)

When I recently changed out my hot water heater, I purchased this to protect the floor.  The previous unit did not have one and on its last legs it began to rust, which transferred to my painted basement floor.  I'm proud to say that I will never again have to deal with that issue, as this product will certainly fix that.  I chose plastic over the competitors because I believe it will last longer and it looks nicer in my opinion.  It's also more affordably priced for--lets face it--a pan that sits beneath your hot water heater.  The pan has a good appearance and would be great to connect to a drain if you are fortunate enough to have one nearby your unit.  I sadly, am not so fortunate, but that's not the pans fault.  I coupled the drain outlet on this product with a small length of PVC and a cap.  With the Rheem water heater I own (http://www.homedepot.com/p/Rheem-Performance-Platinum-40-Gal-Medium-12-Year-5500-5500-Watt-Elements-Electric-Water-Heater-with-LCD-Touch-Control-Display-XE40M12EC55U1/205810442?cm_sp=BazVoice-_-PRRDR-_-205810442-_-x), it has a sensor so if the pan starts to fill the unit will beep and send an alert to my phone.

The drip pan is pro with peace of mind for my high floor apartment in the event of leaking. In the event of leaking, the water will flow out the drip pan to out of the building along with the pressure relief valve hose. Recommended drip pans should be 2 inches larger than the water heater. It brings comfort and peace of mind knowing the water will not flow throughout the apartment in case of emergencies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
