Bradford White 64079
AO Smith 64079
A new PRV was installed along with an AO Smith GCR 50 gallon water heater. The main shutoff was also bad and would not allow the water to shut off all the way or for full water volume into the house. A new gas and water shutoff was installed along with a thermal expansion tank. The flue was also redone to allow for more rise off the top of the water heater.

hot water heater bradford white
AO Smith professionally installed
Age of bradford White
New AO Smith water heater installed without thermal expansion tank, Lenexa does not require thermal expansion tanks on water heater replacements. Since the old tank lasted 18 years the owner opted not to install a thermal expansion tank on the new unit due to the maintenance that a thermal expansion tank requires.
