  • Latest 'Custom' Water Heater, Pictures.

    I can't wait to hear the comments from the peanut gallery.

    1. 3/4" unions.
    2. 3/4" brass nipples into the heater.
    3. 3/4" brass nipple to a 3/4" I.P.S. ball valve to 3/4" brass nipple for hose connection. (Better flow & a lot of houses in this area are on well and when draining tanks, the sediment can clog the boiler drains shut.)
    4. Clean solder joints. Robert take notice.
    5. 3/8" all thread securing the T&P line.



    Myself next to the heater.


    This picture's just for Robert. 3/4" Brass Nipples.



    Put your sun glasses on boys and girls. Cause these joint's are shiney!



    I sign my name to my work cause I take alot of pride in it. I sign my name to my work because I stand behind it.



    Do the job right. Secure the pipe.

        What about the vent??

        Dude, you did a great job and should be proud, the solder joints look clean and the unions are even parallel. You did good, as long as that air gap is there. remember, 1.5 times the diameter of the pipe.

          What are the unions for? are you planning on replacing that heater soon?

          I know they are there but I just don't see them. Cold water valve?, expansion tank?

          Do the homeowner a favor and put a hose cap on that boiler drain. The first time he bumps that handle he's going to be cussing you.

          No taping romex wire to pipes

              Robert- Are you messing with me boss? It's an electric heater.

              Bill- Ha, no sir I just would like to make it easier on the guy that comes behind me.

              In this picture you can see the valve. It may look high, but it's within reach.

              No need for an expansion tank, the house is on well.

              I'm, I just need to get a 3/4" brass cap first, I wanted everything to be uniform, and didn't wanna throw a black mal cap on there.

              What's wrong with the wiring set up? It's taped to the cold line, not the hot line.

                The absence of a vacuum breaker leads me to think they're not required in MD, Aaron..if they are, and you forgot one...GO TO YOUR ROOM!

                  Right on Aaron,Beautifull joints.This not that anything is wrong.But for me,if I have a way do do it,I try not to chew up material with channel locks or pipe wrenches.Maybe on this one I would have left the unions loose and used a wrench on the FIP's.I probably would have ran the T+P closer to the ground to keep the all thread shorter.Maybe I wouldn't wear a Steelers shirt...AND THOSE SHORTS!!!!!







                  Just kidding Bro.Nice,Nice looking work.And believe me,I am the last one who should be bagging on you.When I show up at someone's door they ask where my tin cup is so they can put a quater in it.

                    Ha, not required, keep trying.

                    I'm getting better, I remember some of first picture's got ripped apart, for my own good of course.

                      In KY the romex has to be in conduit to the bottom of the joists to protect the wiring.


                      Looks good!

                        Adam- On finishes like chrome and what not I hear ya, but on 3/4" brass nipples, I rather them be tight.

                        I hear ya about the clothes, this wasn't in a company customer's house though.

                        Reminds me I should get pictures of my work uniform up here.

                            You know Adam, the one that goes on electric water heaters.........got u

                            hey Aaron, you said you stand behind your work, there is no room to stand behind that water heater


                            Even side jobs, your clothes should be safer, I don't know about you, but solder hurts me, and if it were to drip on those white legs of yours......ouch!!! Appearance, wether for your companies customers, or yours, should always be the best and safest as possible.

                            We need gray rubber or plastic conduit here, instead of that extension cord. metal romex appears to not be legal anymore according to an electrician I was speaking to recently.
