water heater

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.

Since you seem to have no purpose here other than to stalk Ig, I can add you to the twit filter with no qualms.

And so shall I. Even though some of Iggy's questions seem too simple to ask, most of the time they spur on more "On Topic" thoughts and ideas. Steve

I'm confused here.
Anytime I ask a question that people feel is "stupid" I'm accused of stalking "Ig", or he shows up with a very mean comment.
Can somebody explain what's going on here?

Nobody starts out knowing everything (indeed, anything).
Iggy is polite, and his questions show a genuine interest in learning and doing.
"Cydrome Leader" is a pathetic combination of a snob and a troll; and for that we have filters.

Yes. You are trolling people, and some think you are serious.

I am seeking advice. If you call this trolling, it does not hurt my feelings.

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.
