  • Best kind of earthquake straps

    I've seen 2 different styles; 1 goes around the tank itself and another type made by pasco looks like a "Y" that attaches to the hot and cold pipes then to the wall. Which is better quality?
    Buy cheap, buy twice.

    The "y" has been around for decades out here.Only use a couple lags a few inches apart on the same stud.Easy to dislodge under stress.

    Wrap around puts four lags on two different studs with almost a three foot spread between the two on each side.Way stronger.
