Troy: Hey, everybody, Troy, Champion Plumbing out of Eagan, Minnesota. We’re doing another water heater in Apple Valley today. The customer is going from this 40 gallon. You can see, I already got part of it taken apart, got her draining down here.
But they’re going to upgrade to a 75 gallon. It is gas. There’s the venting.
Let’s go into it. It’s got everything good. So I wanted to point it out. It’s got six-inch clearance to combustibles from the single wall to the wood. It changes to B venting. It has a firestop. All things that we look for when we’re coming to do a water heater.
It also has a good gas valve and it has combustion air with a good working ball valve for the water.
So I’ll chime in when this one’s done, but those are the main sticking points that we’re always looking for when we’re doing a water heater install. It’s the clearance to combustibles with the venting, the firestop, which is very important, good working water valve, good, approved gas valve, and combustion air. I’ll show you when we’re done.
All right, here we are, back a little bit. As you can see, we had to rework the venting and the water piping to get this thing to fit. It was a tight, tight fit, but it fit. So again, we went from a 40 or 50 gallon here to a 75, just upgraded the capacity.
If you have a leaking water heater or a water heater that is just getting old enough and you don’t want to wait until it goes out, give us a call. Champion Plumbing, (651) 365-1340, or look us up on the web www.championplumbing.net.
