Troy: Hey. Troy, Champion Plumbing out of Eagan. Still talking tankless, this is a Navien tankless water heater. And we’re going to talk about how to flush the water heater. Every water heater we put in, we put the isolation valves on, so your water pipes would be coming up here. We got the cold in, the hot out. So to flush it, all you got to do is turn the supply and the outlet off. And then you have on your isolation valves, you have little hose connectors.

There’s the cold. Here’s the hot. So you take the little caps off, hook up the hoses. The inlet would go to a pump and the outlet would go into the bucket. So we get a five-gallon bucket. You could see it in that last video. You put the hoses in the bucket and you turn on the pump and you open these up and it’ll allow the solution to run through the heat exchanger, which we showed you in that last video. Let it run for about 45 minutes and then close everything up, turn everything back on. And you’re good to go.

Some of the questions we get about tankless water heaters is why? why would you want to go with a tankless water heater? Well, efficiency space and endless amounts of hot water, those are the three biggest key factors. Why not? The price. They run right around five grand to install one of these, to retrofit your house, to make that beautiful machine over my shoulder work. It’s a lot of work.

It’s a lot of work by the plumber, labor-intensive. The machines themselves are also very expensive, but they have a better warranty than say their counterparts … the power vent. I do not like power vent water heaters. They cost more. They cost more to install. They only have a six-year warranty, unless you use your Bradford White’s, which we can get a 10-year warranty on, but still, they’re more efficient than a standard gas gravity water heater, but they’re nowhere near efficient as that Navien tankless water heater. It’s the only thing we put our name behind. If you want one, give us a call Champion Plumbing, Eagan, Minnesota.

Hey, one last thing to talk about with the tankless water heater is the warranty. So Navien has a 15-year heat exchanger warranty. The heat exchanger is where all the magic happens.

It’s where the water goes from cold to hot and to have a 15-year warranty on that is pretty awesome. Pretty awesome. You can’t find a tank-style water heater with more than a 12-year warranty. So says something about the way it was built. And it has a one-year labor, five-year parts.

With Champion, everything we install, you get a three-year bumper-to-bumper. So their one-year labor doesn’t really matter. But if you also install a water softener at the same time, or within a couple of weeks of installing a tankless water heater, if you do them both through us, just like with our regular tanks, we will extend the labor warranty to match the warranty on the piece of equipment you have.

So for example, the Navien would have a 15-year labor warranty, which is huge. Plumbers are expensive and we ain’t getting cheaper anytime soon, so that’s a big deal. That pretty much wraps up the tankless water heater.
