  • Any Ideas?

    Any ideas what to do with an old water heater. I replaced one that was sized incorrectly. The old one & tank are in good condition but I can't re-install it as it is a few years old.

    Any ideas?

    Contact Habitat for Humanity or some other organization that does low income repairs/etc for the needy and see if they can use it? Not sure if they have rules about "used" material.

      -Blow it up like on mythbusters.
      -turn it into an air storage tank (haha Rick) for a potato gun
      -cut it in half and make a custom plumber BBQ grill
      -make your own moonshine, just need some radiators now
      -donate it to a local trade college

      My personal favorite is the blowing up part. Always brings a great deal of satisfaction when heavy object are launched into the air.

        I had an idea that might be crazy. Remove the outer shell, paint the inner tank flat black, & put it under a glass frame & reflector of sorts for solar H/W.

        P.S. I haven't checked in awhile but at one time there has never been a plumbing related trade school curriculum in my area. Thought about teaching myself but you all have seen my mental capabilities.

                  Harvest the copper and aluminum off it and set it out to the end of the driveway for the junkers.

                    What about the glass lining vs. fire?

                        Shooting it or blowing it up might be cool but I don't like to waste. The heater or the bullets.

                            Mmmph!

                            How about we put it beside your toilet with a ball valve on top and call it a 5' bidet.

                              I don't even want something next to me called a bidet

                              I was serious. Oh well.

                              What about keeping it at your house as a backup in case yours goes out?
