Just wanted to give kudos to our lead mechanic on this job along with all the others he does for us. His quality speaks for itself.

    Nice work.
    What's your locale? I'm curious because of the sisemic strapping on the tanks.

    Cascadian Subduction Straps?

    Nice work. Whose expansion tank brackets are you using?

    we just shorten qs50 strap kits for water heaters, simple and not too much cost.

    Thanks -- I'll look into that. We've used 12-14" strut clamps and welded on extensions to others, but the price of the dedicated expansion tank mounts is a tad rich for some jobs.

    Very nice work, great to see.

    Kurt, can you really build or modify a strap for less than this HydroClaw?

    I know some of the supply houses keep them on the shelves also.

    That price makes much more sense (though the one for 11" tanks is about $10 higher.)

    these #12 are around 16 bucks. Nice stuff from Holdrite. I've used their copper stub out brackets for many years.

    If I remember correctly, the hydroclaw was invented by a wallie. Don't remember the name though. I use it and like it.
