I thought bragging about how quickly one can install a HWT is for newbees. Short cuts include/rough tank treatment/ missing things like checking tank flapper valves, drip legs, earthquake strapping, leveling the tank, draining off tank debris & pipe soldering flakes to an outlet that won't get plugged by it, checking air supply & venting or just checking the house water pressure.. etc..
I think the real measuring stick should be how long the HWT that one installs... lasts.
not bragging at all telling the man that it don"t take 2-3 hours to install tank... thanks though did see where I said it takes us 40 minutes....not my intention...edited my comment....
