Was told if you go to Lowes to buy a hot water heater, they will only sell to a licensed plumer or electrian. Is this true or just another hoax

not true when you buy a water heater now anywhere you have to fill a paper out now that goes to the health dept and they send someone to inspect it anywhere you buy one this happens.

Do like I did and go to another county and buy one. Maybe this county should look at how much business is being sent away!

wait a few months until you get a letter in the mail saying you have to have it checked out by a inspector or get a insured plummer to inspect it.

Lowe's just needs to load the damn thing on my truck and mind their own business. And another thing, why must I pay a core charge when I buy a battery? What if there is no battery to replace. What if I buy a battery to use as a back-up power supply for a cb radio in the house? How can their be a core charge if this is the first battery bought for the application?

nope, not for a mobile home here, I just went in and bought one, nothing special to hook them up, takes about 10-20 minutes. dont let them scare you into hiring someone to do it for you. OH, I have bought 3 in the past couple years, one recently, about a month ago, never has Lowes ever contacted me about installation.

ITS not been that long ago that you could only get 25 cents for old junk batterys.the charge is to cover the lead in the battery you just bought.Think about it.But i do understand where your coming from it sucks.But it keeps the price down a little if you can find you an old battery somwhere.

You will get a letter stating that you must have an inspector look at your water heater to make sure it is hooked up right. I personally think that it is just a money making scheme. I mean, it doesn't take a genius to hook up a water heater!!

An inspector is certainly welcome to look at my water heater. Its back the way he came.

I bought my water heater at Lowes the Inspector called and made a appt to come,, im glad he did.. money wasnt the issue with me it was making sure my home was plumbed corect, He took the time and we looked it all over and he pointed out that my plumbing was out of date and in need of upgrades such as a expansion tank for the heater , venting , so on etc,, THANKS INSPECTOR
