In response to Re: hot water tank
: Are natural gas and propane tanks the same units. I want to remove my Electric tank and go with propane as natural gas is not available in my area.

: Thanks

No, they are different. The gas valves could have reversed thread inlet for LP gas, the burners are designed differently and the orifice size is not the same on each.
The only thing similar is the way they are both vented, the shape, size, water inlet & outlet.
You would need to purchase one specifically for LP.
Good Luck & Happy Holidays. e-plumber
