A good customer had a geothermal
heat pump installed a couple years ago.
I just noticed that they plumbed
a loop to the electric water heater.
They replaced the drain cock with a
copper nipple when they looped in.
Am I missing something,or isn't this
setting up a situation for the early demise
of the water heater?
Looks like a brass nipple should have
been used for this.

Besides wanting to help out a good client,
I just had the heater put in 3 years ago
as part of a bath remodel I did for her,
and don't need any extra warranty grief. :thumbsup:

Snoopy?
Ron?
Any plumbers here anymore?
I'd like to find a good source to
cite when these guys come out this week.....
Unless I'm completely off base with this.
