unsafe flue for second water heater
Vent connector for multiple water heaters
New flue ran for second tank and the T was removed. A connector rise was also added to the new installation to prevent any additional backdrafting. The rust on the first tank are an indicator of backdrafting.

overland park water heaters
The water pressure from the city was only 70 psi. The PRV was removed and the house was setup to be on an open loop system. Thermal expansion tank is not required on the open loop system.

Riss Lake water heater installation
Owner decided that two tanks was overkill and the old gas and flue were capped off. By going to a single tank they will save around $5,000 over the life of the water heater.

Water took some time to drain out of the pipes, luckily we have a tool to allow us to sweat on a shutoff valve even when the water is still draining from the lines. New copper lines and fittings installed along with a new humidifier supply shutoff valve.
