Hey guys, wondering if anyone could give me a guess as to the empty weight of a 1960's era stone-lined 80 gallon water heater? The house had been split into two units for years but we removed both old heaters and put a new one in to service the whole house, plumber took the other heater as it was a smaller/newer 40 gallon but he wouldn't touch this monster!
It looks like a ship wreck, litterally, it looks like pictures of the Titanic's hull rusting away, and it still has water in it! I know I need to pump it out first but I have no idea how heavy it is and how to remove it? Would this thing cut with a sawzall, or will the stone interfere?
I checked and it will clear the doorway out by about 1/2" to spare, problem is basement only has external entrance and a structure right accross from door so I can't back a truck up with a winch, has to be by hand. Any ideas/tips? Or is it going to be a permanent resident?
