Turns out we needed a new water heater, guess how much it cost us? (I get hammered if I say "hot water heater").


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

I had a Commercial grade 50 gallon installed outside for $2400. No more leaks in my home or lack of hot water.

How many gallons? Electric or gas? You install or are you paying someone.

Electric, installed by plumber, don't know how many gallons, it looks like a typical heater.

Cost us $1,400. Our plumber has to travel about 30 miles one way. There are other plumbers closer but I usually have to wait a week or more for them to come, if they come. I got tired of trying to get a local for our plumbing needs, this plumber comes rather quickly, he is a young fellow that also has a landscaping business.
My wife called him yesterday afternoon and he was here today.

I paid about $1,000 to have a new electric water heater installed two years ago. They have to have that expansion tank on them now.


Eh...wot?

I paid $550 per 50 gallon electric water heater at Lowes. AO Smiths. Plus you get a military/veteran discount.
Paid the plumber $500 to install both.
$1600 total for 2 installed.

Dont miss the old tank style heaters with the elements and scale buildup in the tank. Had tankless now for about 8 years and would never go back.

one thing most people miss is check your insurance policy
if fine print is a " replace every 6 years " in the policy write-up
especially if you live in a hard water area where steel tanks rust out, this holds true

Unless an odd style or hard to reach you can put a water heater in in about 15 minutes after old one is removed. Get a compression fitting flex hose install kit from Lowes
2 hoses
2 wires
Reuse pipe on pop off

Pressure relief valve can be used instead. Or some states allow a back flow prevent instead.

That is incorrect. Our local plumbing code requires an expansion tank. My old one had a pressure release valve.

When my electric water heater goes bad I will buy a new one and install it as Jbyrd described. This installation has been good for the past 30 years, it will be good going forward.
