Troy: Hey there. Troy Champion Plumbing out of Eagan, Minnesota. Today, we’re in Rosemount. We’ve got another leaking water heater. This one is a Bradford White gas, power vent, water heater. Also, notice that the homeowner didn’t have their water softener plugged in. So we’re going to be taking care of that as well. This one had the cellular core venting. So when you hear us talking about that, this is what we’re looking for.
There is an ASTM number on them, and if it starts with the letter F, it’s bad. Another way of looking at it is trying to find this that says “cellular core.” In 2016, the manufacturers got together and said, “We can’t use that anymore.” You can see Josh has already got most of it cut out already. We’re going to be replacing it with solid core venting, and we’ll chime back in when we’re getting closer to done.
All righty, Troy Champion Plumbing out of Eagan again. Today we’re in Rosemount installing a new what started with a leaky water heater, and we noticed that the water softener wasn’t working. So we got a new water heater with all new venting, as well as a new MultiMAX water softener. What I really like about the MultiMAX water softener is it’s got a carbon filter in the top half of it. The same thing I have in my house made by BrassMaster.
It’ll get rid of the chlorines, chloramines, pesticides, herbicides. Shoot, like I said before, prescription drugs, all that kind of stuff they’re finding in our water. So if you have water softening, water filtration needs, or need a water heater or got a leaky water heater, give us a call at (651) 365-1340. That’s (651) 365-1340.
