I doubt that one came from Home Depot, it’s the professional series.And a home depot water heater.................
Yeah it’s not worth the $60 extra difference for them to deliver a water heater. I’m not rich yet, I’m still installing water heaters for a living. Can’t forget that.that's usually the case but, to have it dropped off, sitting in the driveway of the home it's getting installed in is worth that extra premium from the supply houses to me.
There’s no need for a bracket.I can send you a mounting brack for that tank.
Also does no one install a boiler drain with there expansion tanks so you can easily isolate the tank and drain it with out killing the hot water.

I was talking about a bracket for the expansion tank. None requiredI am curious about the foil tape on the single wall vent pipe. Is that a requirement in your jurisdiction? I have never seen that as a requirement. The vent for a Catagory 1 appliance is under negative pressure. The IFGC has very little information on installation requirements of single wall "vent" pipe. Very little on specifics as to how sections of single wall vent pipe are to be fastened together, sealed, supported. I am an oldtimer, and we always used at least 3 screws in each joint of single wall vent pipe. Never used tape. Anybody have jurisdiction requirements that go farther than screws in each joint? Such as how often the vent must be supported horizontally? For instance IFGC Chapter 5 vents says All portions of single wall metal pipe shall be supported for the design and weight of the material supported. That leaves a lot up to the discretion of the AHJ.
Can you tell me what code numbers that’s in the model codes under ?Most if not all codes forbid a valve that can isolate a safety device from the system it's protecting.
Yes and that code is not for an expansion tank. It’s for water heaters and storage tanks in relation to the T&P valve.Aren't you in Alabama?
So expansion tanks are not required, a relief valve may be used.They're only required here on commercial projects. That or a pressure relief valve on the backflow.
What code would that be ?In My Opinion, this code requires a valve at the expansion tank. See 7.
