Went to lowes just walking around bsing and stumbled across a new 50 gallon electric water heater at an end cap. I noticed it was on sale for 20.00 talked to dept manager he told me its new and he knows its functional just no one wants a dented water heater so he deemed it as parts and for 20.00 to get it gone. I was not in the market for one but for 20.00 I was . I guess ill put it in the shop until I may need one. I will be making more trips to lowes and hopefully find some dented freezers

Yea I think ill hold onto it put caps on the pipes and keep it cause by the time I need it they could be 1000 bucks for every water heater. I would really like one of those instant water heaters that you can put on the wall but they are like 1500 bucks or atleast the one I saw was.

They(point of use) are very reasonable water heaters and much cheaper than conventional ones. The problem with them is the required wire supply to operate them IIRC They have to have min of 6 or 8 awg wire . That's where the cost comes in . If you have access to gas it would be far cheaper .

Thanks yea this store had 2x4x8's non treated for 1.25 each I bought every stack they had. Its in a really rich side of town and after so long they gotta move the old stock out. I generally go there once every 2 weeks and find something.. I bought bull floats and handle sections for dirt cheap not too long ago.

Gotta cap everything and it will last for a life time till you need it. Just check for dirt daubers when you install it

A while back I ordered a portable bench. It was late coming in by a couple of days so I mentioned it. They gave me an additional 10% off. When they brought it up from the back the box was torn, they gave me ANOTHER 10% off.

That's what I'm talking about I think there fair. I don't like home depot.
