Booster Valve In Gas Hot Water Heater?


other than fuels supply, is there any reason why u can't replace a gas water heater with an elec?
have done this before in single level home without incident, but my sis needs her's replaced in 2 story hm. Guy at HD told her that she had to replace it with a gas unit or else would need a booster valve installed inline, becuz elec models don't have one built in but gas models do?
What say you plumbers?


Supposed to do this tomorrow, so if anybody's readin tonight & has some insight pls post here or send me an e-mail. Thx very much

Sounds like as usual, the HD boys don't know what they are talking about - never heard of anything like that in my life.
