Merry Christmas, Home Depot!
Home Depot received an unexpected present from us this year...we purchased a new fifty gallon hot water tank. Our tank has started leaking more water and the pilot light was doused yesterday. This, of course, left us with very little hot water. After checking out the tank we decided to bite the bullet and get a new one. It was only a matter of time before the whole thing decided to loose its load of water after all and then we'd really be in a pickle.
Mike headed to Home Depot yesterday and purchased a new hot water tank complete with installation by a local company. The plumber from said local company arrived today and told us we'd need to pay $820 more to bring the tank up to code. This, mind you, was on top of the $250 installation fee. We decided to go with a second opinion. I *know* we can find someone to do the required upgrades and installation for less than $1,070. Keeping my fingers crossed anyway.
Thank goodness I've got this gig begging people to donate their old junk to Mark's thrift store. I'm now prepared to do it longer than expected to help pay off the hot water tank.
