I wish I had natural gas. I've dreamed about installing on-demand heaters since I first saw them in Hungary in the '70s.

Now THOSE things were creepy. Staring at a pilot light kicking off the fire right at eye level under the shower head. Whoosh!

Donít think you were around when @jawn was a regular. He had a picture of the girl Boxy (a minor internet celebrity) as his avatar. He was hit on all the time. Usually by some of the creepiest member of this forum. It was hilarious.

They told me I would have to get a bigger gas line, and redo the flue. Cheaper just to get a new 60 gal at Home Depot and pop it in. If I was staying here, maybe.

Well, OK, you asked for - the rest of the story -

Back in those days, the primary fungicide used in orchards was sulfur. I mentioned that the property was a prune orchard and the house is where they stored their pesticides (including sulfur).

Yes, later on down the pipeline, mercaptan, the harmless chemical that is added to natural gas, contains sulfur, which makes it smell. Many people describe the odor of mercaptan as similar to rotten eggs (sulfur).

So, the whole damn place smelled like rotten eggs -

Ol humfrz ain't as dumb as he looks -

They are more expensive up front but we did see a decrease in our gas bill during the summer (when our only gas usage is water) of about 10%. Slow ROI but continuous hot water is worth it!
Thanks for the heads up -

Let's see, I take a shower once per week.

ROI evaluation, I'm 76 years old - that did it, however, maybe I could include that in my will - ??
