Heater is installed; everything went perfectly despite some tricky clearance issues related to the postition of my furnace and a wall. Also the heater’s T&P port had a spot of slag blocking the first thread, but fortunately the plumber had his 3/4 tap on hand and fixed it, after I tried with a scratch-awl and a makeshift thread chaser but couldn’t quite clear it out.
Also, I misunderstood the plumber about his preferred flex line. They are Rino Flex corrugated stainless, not stainless mesh/rubber. See:
They are indeed much more flexible than other metal flex lines I have tried. They seem MUCH nicer than corrugated copper.
