    Re: Water heater flexes

    Since we're on the boat drifting anyway....

    Are you required to put electric W/H's on stands under UPC/Cali. codes?

      Take it down a notch turbo, doesn't have to be personal. I think I am entitled to my opinion, and also entitled to express how I think it should be done. Doesn''t make me right, but an opinion can't be wrong. Seems like you must be that one guy who takes it too far.

        Only if the water heater has an electrical connection or switch within 18' of a garage floor.

          Wow, that must be a b!tch getting them on 18' stands. No wonder you have to use seismic strapping.

            Also disagreeing is fine, but don't be a dick, keep it constructive.

                I'd say that was pretty gentle and 100% in line with my thinking. The first thing I was taught as an apprentice 36-years ago was to put three screws in the vent connectors. Back then we didn't even have screw guns so we had to do it with a 5/16" nut driver.

                        No actually in the day we would take old coffee cans and just solder them together. When we needed an angle we would cut one end on an angle and put a Dutchman in the other.

                            even i had a yankee screwdriver. i remember when i was an apprentice, the forman was installing robe hooks on the back of the doors and he slipped. the screwdriver went right through the hollow core door.

                            glad i'm no longer doing bathroom accessories. union required the plumbers, not the finish carpenters.

                              Yeah I had a Yankee screwdriver as well but would not have used it for sef-taping screws.

                                are flex supplies for a HWH/HWT for ease of installation, earthquakes?

                                i don't see too many of those up here
                                They aren't really for earthquakes they satisfy a code requirement for a union connection on the water heater. In Cali, they also require earthquake straps and 18" off the floor so it's not a matter of flexing during an earthquake.
