new water heater

Post by bjmatson » Tue Feb 11, 2020 10:14 pm

I was quoted $1,700 and $2,100 for a new tank and installation.
$2,100 was from the company that Home Depot referred.
Everyone wanted me to go through them for the Tank purchase as well. It seems they must make markup on the tanks they purchase. I was able to find a plumber who would do the installation only, for $500. The new tank was $550 at Home Depot. 50 gallons which is enough for the 3 of us in our home.

Old tank was almost 40 years old. It weighed a ton from all the sediment that had collected.
Installation should definitely be done by a professional.
