Shawnee expansion tanks
AO Smith water heater
A new water heater was installed and a thermal expansion tank was installed. The water pressure from WaterOne was 130 psi and the PRV reduced it down to 75. This brings the water pressure in the house up to 130 when the tank is heating water. In this environment a thermal expansion tank is recommended. Also installed new shutoff valves and replaced the saddle valve.

New tank installed and the flue for the water heater was corrected to maintain proper slope. The old water heater actually had a flat spot in the flue which may have attributed to occasional backdrafting. The new flue has proper slope and is a safer installation.

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.
