: It can be done. There are two ways to pipe them, series and parallel. Each has its advantages and disadvantages. It is safe as long as the gas line is large enough and you either have a large enough flue for the two or install a new flue through the roof for the second one, and the room's ventilation is sufficient.

: : I have just purchased a new home and the water heater is only a 40 gal which is not enough for us.
: : A friend said I should keep the 40 gal water heater that came with the house since it is brand
: : new and just add another 40 gal water heater to it. Can this be done, and if so, is it difficult and is it safe?

What's the advantages and disadvantages of a parallel installation? Is it worth converting it to serial?
