The plumber installed our new water heater today. Everything seems to have
worked out fine, and it seems we have more hot water pressure now, so that may
have been an indication of the problems in the old one. My buddy Devicer tried
to make me feel bad about not doing this myself, saying "the stupidest guy" on
an unrelated mailing list he participates in performed such an installation
himself. I said that was all well-and-good, but what did the smartest guy on
this list do? We decided he probably called the plumber too.
