Buderus ST-150 indirect water tank install: Raise up off floor in basement?


I'm having a Buderus ST-150 indirect water tanker heater hooked up to my

Buderus GB142 boiler next week in my basement.  Should I have them raise

it off the floor by setting it on blocks or something? 

I like the idea about having air flow under the tank to minimize the potential for rusting, etc

plus if the basement ever gets a tiny bit of water, hopefully it won't hurt

it.  Anyone agree with raising this water tank off the floor or am I being

paranoid?  Thanks!

    I wouldn't install

    a furnace, boiler, or water tank without putting it up on blocks. 2" patio blocks will do the trick. 4 of them I might add
