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, we’ll go through our checks again. We get 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 our four-inch venting that runs up, and I’m going to go around to the other side … into a V vent liner. We have no clearance issues with the single wall of V 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.
