Feedback We recently bought our home and therefore have only used this water heater for a few months. Although it worked and we had hot water there was a loud noise made every time you turned the water on. The water heater has functioned way past its expected life and we felt it was on borrowed time and was time to replace.

The new water heater was installed even though the old tank could have been repaired it made more sense to just install a new tank.

The flue was rotted out behind the furnace and required inspection. There was also a hidden Y that had broken allowing for a leak in the flue. Section of the flue was replaced and water and gas lines connected.

Copper lines were replaced and rerouted. An older solder job had blocked off a majority of the passage for water to travel through. By replacing some additional piping the water pressure was significantly increased.
