If you gave me $200.00 to take it, I wouldn't take it. If it's sooted up like you suggest, it is very difficult to clean.
Some cheapster with a lot of time on their hands might like it for project, but not me.
Did the bank hire a licensed plumber to replace the water heater and were the proper permits obtained with the proper inspections done?
Banks are the largest legal criminal enterprise in the USA. Too big to fail and too big to need permits and inspections.
If I did that where I work, the plumbing inspector would be having me go before The Board for disciplinary action.
And isn't the age of that heater make it fall under the pilot regs? All the ones that I have installed have all these safety devices on the bottom.
