Some of us are professionals that spent 4 years in trade school to learn how to do our trade, and not dumbasses that stink and drive piece of shit vans that leak oil all over your driveway and leave with gas leaking in your house. $70 an hour is the going rate but it’s cheap compared to other professions. A lot of things come out of that $70 every hour, rant over, carry on

    I ended up having a client of mine (who is licensed and owns a respected plumbing company) do the work. Having now watched some of the work, I'm pretty confident I could have done everything. But, there is benefit to the warranty (of the labor and the unit) as well as the disposal of the old tank. It took my client's employee about 4 hours to do the work. It looks good and works. I probably shouldn't tell you what my hourly rate is.

    I didn’t mean to sound like a dick this morning, just trying to save you trips to the store and junkyard. What brand do they install?

    Ha! No worries. I’m just not very good at paying other people to do work I think I can do. Earlier in the week I took time off work to replace a garage door opener that crapped out. It would have cost me far less (in terms of my lost work hours versus labor for an install company) to pay someone else. I just couldn’t bring myself to pay the labor though.

    They installed a 50 gallon Bradford White...pretty much looks the exact same as the 15 year old Bradford White they pulled out (except the gas regulator box looks fancier).

    15 years is pretty good for a heater anymore, those are made up in Michigan. I used to try to do my own work too but finally realized I could stay at work where I make money and support other small business’ so it’s a win win

    That's what I was thinking. A previous home that I bought was built in 84 and water heater was leaking when I moved in 08. Contractor showed me it was the original one and said the older ones actually do last (granted it should have been replaced sooner by the previous owner but it was still working, lol). The one that he replaced (the new one) had to be replaced again 6 years later, lol.

    6 year warranty now so that’s about what they last up to 10 or 12 years

    Tankless are the best. I will never own a house without one.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
