Guys does position of baffle make any difference?
when you get the heater installed, have a
drip leg installed on the inlet of the gas valve on the
this tee with a nipple and cap on the end should
catch all the crap that ever goes through that line..
it dont cost anything to do and its code in many
areas of the country....and a good practice.
Yep will do Mark...noticed my gas line for furnace has one but not dryer....stainless steel connection.......flexible...fwiw the copper line is very thin and it does have the drip leg wonder if it being smaller diameter than the iron pipe changes gas pressure? If it is a gas pressure issue is anything plumber can do to fix it?
Ok spoke to plumber tonight..tomorrow is the big swap out lol He will come by in morning to size job up and then got to FW Webb to get heater...Kenmore will go into my garage until I can convince Sears to come pick it up...good luck huh?
Well I intend to really fight them to take it back, 2 bad heaters as far as I'm concerned.....2 very shoddy installation attempts and the second plumber could have killed us due to his unique venting with foil tape...I could run into an issue because I gave up on them but was not gonna have Sears try for a third time and waste more of my time...never again...an independent plumber from here on out for sure
Hope I am making the right move!
I don't know how it works down there but up here in Canada you need to be a ticketed gas fitter. And a gas ticket is separate from a plumbing ticket.
He is off to FW Webb to get the Bradford White with the ICON System
