At first they had all these extra charges and I felt I was being taken for a ride. They explained to me that they were code and manufacture issues and that I did not have to do them. How ever if I did not buy the extra work I could have warranty issues and if inspected I might have a problem. They also mentioned that the extra work done or not done could be passed or not passed by an inspector. This was confusing and flusterating as I needed ht water but did not want to pay for something I may or may not need. They said this is the way it is in Oregon as the inspectors can say what ever they want and if thery is a problem the installer will be responsible. So I said yes to a could of items and no to the rest. The tech then said he had to write that I declined the stuff I did not want so that if a problem came up it would be up to me to take care of it later and that it could cost me more. At this time I felt like I was going for a ride and said no to everything and to jus put it in.
They did and then they were gone. After about a month I got a call and the water heater needed to be inspected and the time was set. When the inspector showed up he said the water heater looked good but a few things were needed to pass. OH, here we go, I argued with him to no evale and had to have Fast Water Heater come back. It cost me way more than if I had done it the first time but understandably, they practicaly needed to redo the installation to corredt the issues. In the end they cut me a break but it still cost more the second time around. I should have listened as they are the experts and as for the inspectors someone should look in to that crazy system and fix it. I should either need it or not and they should make the rules so the plumbers can do there jobs without confusion and without confusing the customers. Thanks Fast water heater, I should have listened to you the first time and as for the inspection proccess get a clue and make up you minds.
