energy efficient













I drained & refilled all water heaters on the property (3) and wrapped them with insulation jackets. The one in the main house was "hard-piped" w/o the option of 'easily' disconnecting the water heater for maintenence or replacement. This condition is now corrected as shown in the photos, with new 'union' fittings placed just above the water heater, along with new shut off valves (since the old ones were corroded). This 74.5 gallon water heater is 13 years old, and I don't think it had ever been drained to eliminate sediment buildup. I'm surprised it still is working. While I was completing this project, a blimp from the AT&T golf tournament was wending it's way down the coast on to it's next whatever..."Come fly with me.." it invited...
