In response to Re: Possible to put gas water heater on wood subfloor?
The pans are for catching water when the heater leaks. The heaters are designed for installion on combustible floors.But if flamables can be stored around them it should be raised 18" above the floor.

: I am in the middle of some basement ronovations and the next step is to do the laundry/utility room. The gas water heater is currently on the concrete floor but we would like to have a rasied wood subfloor throughout the laudry/utility room. So here's my question: Is it possible to put the gas water heater on a wood subfloor, and if so are there any extra requirements such as cementboard instead of plywood, etc? Any problems/issues in doing this that I should be aware of?

: Thanks in advance,
