Can we install in the garage? Mercedes home, current water heater is in the Garage. The water heater is in a water heater closet, raised off floor with effective drain through garage floor and outside.
Asked by: Ok2InstallGarage
Hello Ok2InstallGarage, Thank you for reaching out! While we would recommend reaching out to a licensed installer who is familiar with local building code in your area. However, As a general rule of thumb granted that you have minimum clearances to combustibles this should not be a problem.

Only gripe I have is why are the plumbing industry charging so much for the 1/2 hour installation of these water heaters--$895.00 each plus the cost of the heater. Big time rip off. Do it yourself not that hard.
Date published: 2018-12-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good features I bought this water heater after I discovered a leak in my old one in March of 2015. The price was comparable to others, or lower, and it had newer features not available with our old one, (e.g. pipe insulation tubes supplied, a computerized monitoring system with a pulsing light, informing you of its status). Because the old one had leaked into our den where we have a piano, this time I installed a circular catch pan underneath to help me notice any leaks prior to spreading. A few months later, my wife and I were celebrating our 35th anniversary with our first cruise, and all I could imagine is our upstairs water heater dying while we were gone (it was over 12 years old, warranted for 6), so I not only changed it and put a catch pan beneath it, but also installed a battery operated moisture-detecting alarm, as this water heater is in a seldom-opened closet. I'm hoping that when the time comes to change it, that either I will have before it leaks again, or at least will be alerted before water begins to leak between floors.
