The existing water heater was installed 10 years prior due to an unsafe flue. This power vent model actually wasn't installed correctly. Too large of a vent was used and the slope went in the wrong direction. This likely attributed to the blower failure within the first 6 years which was covered under warranty, even though it was an installation issue. The second issue was determined to be a bad gas valve. Due to the age, the tank was replaced instead of repaired.
The water pressure was 100 psi due to a failed PRV. The vent for the blower was also replaced with 2" and restrictor plates were used to prevent future problems. The slope for the flue was also redone.
