A few final thoughts.

While not a job for a novice, there was nothing about this installation that was really difficult. (Other than working in the attic when it is sunny and 90F outside.)

The only part of the installation that I'd not done before was a gas line modification. After I found the shutoff - (300 feet from the house at the street) - and used the stove to de-pressure the line, it came apart easily with pipe wrenches and went back together easily as well.

About the only other significant learning I had was that if you use the rag that you use to wipe down the sweated joints after they're done to wipe your head, you will end up with minor acid burns. Flux sux.

Now all I have to do is finish draining the old tank, get it out of the attic and move the drip pan under the new heater.
