Got to Menards this morning in Cheyenne and the heater I selected on the web, turns out to be a special order model. Ofcourse the web did not say that. Found a similar one on sale so saved $40. All installed and we have hot water now. She is happy. I am pooped from hauling the old one out of the basement and taking the new one one down to the basement.

Got a couple of new brass compression fittings and cut off 10" of copper pipe to compensate for the extra height of the new heater, Reused the old braided stainless flex hoses, but did replace the rubber washers. Had a couple drips that required a little tightening up. I will check again tomorrow morning to see if all is water tight.
