    No, even in the original install (which I was not a part of) there was no reduction in size.

    Called the supplier and 4-5 week lead time on the tank with the top T&P, so I'll just drop straight down from the T&P valve, then take a 90 to the wall to and thru to another (outside) 90. I'll...
  5. Gas Piping questions

    The answer is yes, since the inlet on all the 50 gal tanks is 1/2", so this removes most of my other questions about the gas line.

    Yes, I'll definitely be strapping it to the studs per the codes. The current strapping job is kind of half-assed.

    I also noticed a few things when I went to measure and plan the install of the...

    Yes, I have tried adjusting the T-stat and it seems to work to adjust the "initial" temp of the water, but the same issue happens after it stands for awhile. Don't really want to crank it way up...

    Moving the disposal to the right bowl would raise the outlet from the disposal approx 1.25", so the new height will be at 14.75" vs the 12.5" of the current rough-in.

    Kitchen drain w/disposal rework

    Have a poor situation with the existing setup in our new (to us) house. When the disposal, (which is currently installed on the left (larger) bowl of the double-bowl sink) is turned on when the sink...
