    Hi hj: Yes, I worry about cleaning the intake screens too. The heater will be next to the furnace in a 3'x4' closet, so everything is tight. There's not too much clearance on the sides, but maybe...
  9. Hi: Yes, the heater will be in a finished,...

    Hi: Yes, the heater will be in a finished, interior mud room, so a pan is important--I don't want a water leak to ruin the flooring, sub-floor, etc. I might add, that we turn off the heat at night...

  12. Old Hot Water Heater = Legs----New Hot Water Heater = No Legs!

    Hi: Our old hot water heater had legs, but the new Rheem heater we bought is legless. Wouldn't it be a good idea to put some sort of blocking or spacers in the pan before the heater is installed? ...

    Hi: Just to let everyone know, the new valves cost about $100 retail, so that's not too bad to keep the two cross handles we originally installed. I'll keep you posted as to how it works. Marty
