I have a water heater that I do not want to be stationary. Can I drill
holes in the bottom and use strong casters, so that I can move it around?
It is a 40 gallon unit, and uses natural gas. I have already installed
sturdy casters on my furnace, car, car door, front steps and mailbox, so
this should be no problem to do.
Nobody starts out knowing everything (indeed, anything).
Iggy is polite, and his questions show a genuine interest in learning and
"Cydrome Leader" is a pathetic combination of a snob and a troll; and for
that we have filters.
Make sure you drill all the way into the tank. This will let
the water out, and make it much easier to roll around. Can you
use old, worn-out garden hose for the gas main? If it leaks,
then the resulting explosion will expand the dimensions of your
shop to include the whole neighborhood! What could be better?
I was thinking it would be safer to use several brass flex lines for gas,
connected with straight pieces of galvanized pipe. I got some at a garage
sale, they are covered in green corrosion, but I can use a wire brush
attached to a powerful motor to clean all this off. I can then coat them
in cosmoline to protect them from moisture.
