Not sure how I'm going to cap that vent hole yet, and yes someone did flip the hot/cold supplies.

I work at the largest port in North America, which is extremely corrosive.
We do everything in brass or stainless.

Oh..my fault....
I thought it was just a simple residential unit I was looking at......

Good observation,
Home Depot also sells Ridgid and Milwaukee.

You may be right about the expansion tank.

I wasn't dissing your work by stating that those products can be purchased @ home depot. I just thought the same thing as Mark , residential water heater , I didn't notice it was commercial.
I have purchased ridgid copper cutters from home creepo among many other things, I have a HD commercial card

I'm just messing around,
Hd is open on Sunday's which is a must have. Not to mention the desperate home owners are fun to watch.

Mark- the water heater is for a small
Office building, which will be a headquarters of a dive team.

I'm updating an existing restroom and adding an ADA shower.

I noticed that out of the wall in the back the cold stop is coming out on the left and the hot is going back into the wall on the right...... someone put something in backwards....at some point.....

your boss probably spent welll over 65 bucks for all those brass nipples and fittings going to that thermal expansion tank hanging by its own weight...

looks ok but I would have used galvanized nipples and supported the tank better ..
Double M, Why galvanized over brass? Price of them or other reasons?

Mostly just the higher price ... I know the galvanized pipe will surely outlast the Bradford white water heater anyway , seen many of them 15+ years old and still working fine around here.....

Here Galvanized pipes last about 3 years before they rust out, complete junk
