This week 12-01-15 Don't try to catch it!! Over the years and through several houses I've installed 3 hot water heaters. It was never a big deal. Go to the hardware store, buy it (usually a few hundred bucks), take it home, turn off the water, drain the water out of the old one, unhook it, drag it out to the garage, drag in the new one, hook it back up, turn the water back on, put the old one in the garbage .. about half a day's work..

I've done it for every communion service we've ever had, all 27 years. Currently I make about 150 loaves for church wide communion. People always come up to me and say how great the bread was.
