I'm a single lady with no experience in installing anything. Is this something you think is easy ...

Asked by Karey March 27, 2018

Answers

I'm extremely mechanically inclined so for me it was easy popping in a replacement in a business years ago and now about to replace the one in my home. That being said, you can easily find yourself in over your head. Think of the "what if's"--what if you are wrenching on old connectors to remove the old water heater and a fitting snaps off from age or the shut off valve doesn't work internally and you loosen the fitting--kaboosh--now you could be gushing water or gas. Do you know how to shut off a water main or a gas main? How long will you be without either one for "non-emergency" service? I don't want to be accusatory but some service men will say on Monday that they can be out on Friday. Oh, this is an emergency? then $X rates apply. Both eyes open.

Can this be installed in a mobile home?

Asked by jules August 21, 2019

Answers

This is not a yes or no question. There are a number of variables to consider. Mobile homes (alias manufactured homes) are required to comply with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development regulations in that a water heater must have the capability of natural and/or propane gas usage. Not all mobile homes have straight-line natural gas. If the home is in a permanent location with natural gas, then this water heater will work. Another consideration is space. Is there ample space for its installation, having the correct clearances around the tank for proper service. Then there is the weight consideration. A tank this size is about 340 lbs, with full capacity, and will span three floor joists at the most. Most manufactured homes are designed to accomodate this weight, depending on its placement. And finally, exhausting the unit must be preplanned. Be sure the existing exhaust system is adaptable and in excellent condition. I hope this helps

This is a great product! I ordered it online at homedepot.com. It was delivered right at my front door with free shipping. My old one it was replaced was also by the same manufacture. You won't believe it, that one was installed in 1989 and lasted for 28 years! This new one works even better. I'm very happy with it. I just trust the brand!

Zero stars. Broke after only 6 months.
No money to be saved here. You'll have to throw it away if it is past the 180 day return policy because Home Depot won't let you return it. The Thermocouple went out on ours and it won't stay lit.
