dented water heater
Posted by P. Maixner on December 26, 2003 at 11:35:45:
I had a 40 gallon gas water heated installed on Dec. 10. On Dec 24, I discovered a large dent, about 5 inches across and 3/4 inches deep, in the bottom portion of the water heater. It had been concealed by the standard paperwork that accompanies a water heater. That paperwork had been taped to the side, but fell off, and that is when I discovered the dent. When I called the company I purchased if from and demanded a replacement, they brushed it off and told me it would not affect the safety or performance of the unit. Do I have a concern here?
