        A:  in the instructions it says 1/2" of gypsum. drywall (sheetrock) is made of gypsum so i assume that they mean a least 1/2" thick drywall

        by|Jun 3, 2022

          A:  This is a thermal barrier designed to prevent the transfer of cold zone (concrete) from affecting the water heater.

            Why isn't this base circular?
            Why isn't this flammable water heater base circular rather than square and covered in fibreglass? Gypsum will break down if exposed to water so why would the manufacturer even suggest it as a barrier?

              We recently switched out our gas water heater for an electric one to reduce our use of fossil fuel. The new water heater just didn't look right sitting directly on the concrete floor of our house. If you have ever stood on cold concrete and felt it suck the heat your of your legs you legs you know what I'm talking about. And I was worried about rust because the steel base of the water heater was in direct contact with concrete, a bad idea. With an internet inquiry I found this insulating pad. This may improve the performance of my water heater by 4% to 7% due to reduced heat loss. Easily the best $12 I've ever spent.

              Worked as expected. Hopefully it will insulate the water heater from the concrete. So far so good. I believe I would use this again if I were to replace the water heater again.

                The foam is of heavy grade and will work as intended. I should have paid more attention as it is square and I would have preferred round. I will cut it

                  It works ok, however...
                  Summary: It works but: 1. It's soft and sinks down some 2. It's flammable and requires a thermal barrier (reflective metal tape might do the trick) 3. It seems to be the same stuff as in the store, but pricier.

                    Bought 5 for crafting. Needed clean, without dents/dings: these were exactly that. Whoever packaged these so carefully deserves a raise!
