Hi Pat,
My name is Carmen and I’m a student also at InterNachi pending to become a home inspector soon. Now, here is the question. We have in the garage installed a pretty similar water heater as this one in the attached pic. The water heater is also electrical supplied and is raised 18" above the floor. Now, this installation 18" above floor level can only be required by the State construction codes. It’s got no objective in case of electrical water heater, which do not have an open combustible source. Is that correct? Also in the course I’ve done says that only the open combustible source water heater should be installed 18" above floor to prevent ignition of the vapors in case of combustible fluid spilt on the floor.

I’ve started the video! I’m anxious to inspect our own water heater after eating this video.
