Location Escondido, CA
A McDonald’s restaurant in Escondido, CA called ASAP Drain Guys & Plumbing because they had no hot water. Upon arrival, the technician drained down the existing 125 BTU, 70 gallon commercial water heater and hauled away. The technician called the local supply house to find out that the only water heater that could replace the existing tank was in another county. A second technician drove out of San Diego county to pick up a new 80 gallon natural gas 135 BTU commercial water heater. The gas assembly was replumbed and a new sediment trap was installed. New full port ball valve and gas flex was installed. Copper discharge line was reconnected. Water lines were replumbed and the expansion tank was reworked from the hot water line to the cold water line with an isolation valve. The existing 6″ single wall vent was replaced with a 5″ vent and fittings. Drain on the water heater was replaced with a tee for the use of a recirculating pump in the future if the customer chooses to install. A 1″ ball valve on hot outlet line of water heater was replaced. The new tank was filled, once full the new tank was plugged in and tested for proper function.
