Outrageous Tankless Rip-Off!!!!!!!
We had a tankless water heater installed in December.
The city signed off final inspection on the water heater but did not come to the job site for final.
We verified that the city inspector really signed off the permit as it was dated on a Saturday.
He said it was approved.
We paid the plumber for the job.
Now, we have learned that the tankless installation was very, very far away from being to code.
In fact, we have to repipe all the way to the street to have enough of a gas volume to be to code. This will cost THOUSANDS of dollars and landscape damage.
This is an outrage! We had a really good 2 tank hot water system with recirculating pumps and it worked great. We were talked into the tankless system to save money.
We now have to wait for the water to heat up for showers and washing hands, and we are exposed to a huge problem with repiping.
I am really speechless. We were really and truly ripped off.
Any suggestions? Sue the plumber? Sue the city? Sue Noritz? I am really hopping mad!
