Question DetailsAsked on 1/29/2012

How do I get a list of plumbers in my area? I want to remove my existing hot water tank and install a "instant" gas hot water mechanism

My present hot water system is an electric 50 gallon tank. I want the electric heated tank removed and replaceed. I have a gas heater for my home. I want to tap into the heaters gas line to supply the gas for the mechanism. I need a plumber who understands what size mechanism I will need to supply the hot water in my home.

There are a lot of variables that go into a standard heater conversion to a tankless unit. You can utilize Angie's list to locate plumbers in your area or google plumbers in your city. Most tankless units require a 3/4" gas line as they burn twice as hot as a standard gas unit. You will also need to vent the gas unit through the roof and attic unless you find a place to install it outside.
A typical conversion of this type costs 3 to 4 times the cost of just replacing the existing unit. Hope this helps!
