lightweight concrete platform for water heater?
Posted by Shirley on May 20, 2003 at 06:07:17:
Hi,...A plumber I talked to about installing a new gas water heater said that he uses a lightweight concrete platform underneath, instead of a wood platform which we now have. Our old platform is rotting due to a leak in one of the copper pipes. Our heater will be 50 gal.
and goes in a second-story storage room of our house.
Can anyone tell me more about this lightweight concrete platform, how much they weigh, etc. Any help or thoughts on this will be greatly appreciated.
