We discussed the needs with the client and decided that they would be better off with only one 50 gallon tank opposed to two separate tanks. Upon installing the new water heater we found a baseball size hole in the backside of the flue that was not visible unless the flue was taken apart. These water heaters were almost certainly dumping Carbon Monoxide inside of this families home. We replaced the entire section of flue and installed a PRV.

Feedback Made crackling/popping noises. Slow recovery. Early morning, very little hot water. Finally, just shut off and quit working.

New AO Smith installed. A thermal expansion test showed that the water pressure rose to 97 psi when the tank was increasing in temperature and then seemed to level off at that point. A thermal expansion was not installed as it\'s not required in Shawnee and the maintenance was not wanted.
