Troy: All right. Troy, Champion Plumbing, out of Eagan, Minnesota. Now, I should say, we are in Burnsville, putting in another water heater. This one will go through our checks again.
We got a good approved gas valve. This water valve we are going to replace. It’s a gate valve. It’s not a full port valve. Also still has lead in it, so we’re going to get rid of that.
This is a spike valve. It’s not even going anywhere. They took the Aprilaire out. This one we’re going to get rid of as well. We’ll just put a coupling in there.
Let’s see, combustion air is hidden back here, so that’s good. We have a four-inch venting that runs up, and I’m going to go around to the other side into a B-vent liner. We have no clearance issues with the single wall. A B-venting, and it does have a good fire-stop.
Nothing here needs to change. This is a 40-gallon gas atmospheric, which means it uses the air and the heat to get rid of the fumes. I will chime in when we’re done, but this is another pretty straightforward water heater.
Here we go. Again, Troy, Champion Plumbing. Got the water heater in. This is a Ruud water heater. Again, gas, gravity. We got a new ball valve and we got rid of that spike valve. Other than that, everything was good here.
