Question DetailsAsked on 3/18/2018

Cost range for plumber replace short (4ft) 40 gal. water heater San Francisco (w permit, vents, 10-year warranty)?

My water heater started leaking onto my garage floor. I called the service listed on the tank. They came wi hrs, but quoted same day price at $2500! That seemed about $1000 higher than expected from checking at Lowes, and quickly online generally, and asking neighbors. He explained that it cost more because the relatively cramped installation place was harder than usual to get to, and San Francisco height restrictions for the venting above required using a more expensive shorter ("stubby") tank (tank about 4 ft tall, with another 18 inches of venting and piping above), and with careful attention to that venting above, and that the City now requires a permit fee for inspection afterwards, and replacement of the inlet and outlet lines and insulation, and installation of an overflow collection bin with drain pipe extending a few inches below the base, and their Bradford White URG240S6N 10-yr warranty heater is better than Lowes or Home Depot units. Is that even close to correct??
