Hot Waterheater drip pan.
Posted by Frank Bellinetti on September 27, 2001 at 22:43:02:
I am buying a new 50 gal hotwater heater. I saw an aluminum drip pan at Home Depot. Question: Will the contact of different metals on the bottom of hot water heater (probably steel) and the aluminum cause the bottom to rust out quicker than normal? Also, current hot water tank sits directly on basement concert floor. Question: Does this cause any problems with life or operation of heater? Should new heater be mounted on brinks or some other platform? Thank you in advance for having this message board. Frank
