I just replaced mine. They can do it on there own. Basic tools, plumbers cement, and about an hours work. Maybe an extra hand just to position the thing.

I live out here and can't say I really know any "handymen" exactly. I usually have my neighbors help me with that kind of stuff. I have tried to get plumbers to do things for me and it is like pulling teeth to get plumbers out here to even show up. Not exactly sure why.

HOWEVER, if it is a handyman he is really looking for than I suggest he go to his local 7-11 or mini-mart and pick up the latest copy of the Valley Trader. Handymen and all kinds of trade are always advertising their services in there. Before anybody asks or suggests in..No the Valley Trader is not on line. Sorry.

Anyways, I hope that helps. If not shoot me a PM and I will try to find somebody in my church that may be able to help him out. I am glad to help in anyway I can.

Water heaters are super easy to replace. He can do it himself and save a few hundred $$

Yeah you dont even have to use a torch to solder anymore although I prefer this way. They sell those quick connectors called 'Shark-Bites' which are guaranteed for 50 years. I have some guys at work that swear by them, but I think the old fashion soldering is the best/most permanent.

I have to agree with Guzz on the fact that you cant get anyone to come out to your house out this way... plumbers, general contractors, you name it, none of them show.. You would think that with the economy being the way it has been that they would be all over any call that they get....

As for replacing it, they really are pretty easy to install.... just make sure he turns the breaker and water off! LOL!
