22" plastic water heater pan

Comments about OATEY SCS Oatey® Water Heater Pan:

This water heater drain pan is not made of robber-like plastic, in other words, it can crack with impacts. It is made of a thin plastic that seems delicate to the eye/touch and would not resist much bending. If you are going to place this pan in an area subject to being kicked or bent I suggest going with a different pan.

The biggest selling point was that I needed a pan with a 22" diameter. The ones at other hardware stores were 24" minimum. This one fits nicely under my 18" diameter water heater with just enough room for a garden house to be connected to the drain valve.

Only time will tell how durable this item is since I have not owned it long enough to see and so far it has not been kicked. On a side note, remember that it is generally against code to install a plastic drain pan under gas powered water heaters. If your water heater uses gas, go with metal instead.

Also it says that the pan is made in USA, the PVC however is made in Taiwan.

    Comments about OATEY SCS Oatey® Water Heater Pan:

    Decent pan for the money. Got away from the metal ones because they bend and kink easily in tight spaces. Have more flexibility with the plastic and it's about half the cost of the metal pans.

      Comments about OATEY SCS Oatey® Water Heater Pan:

      Had a leak in a 10 Gallon water heater. Did not want to spend 230 to replace. Was 10 years old. It was leaking. I removed it looked at the bottom There is a steel drain plug in the bottom. I cleaned it off and used a tube of Magic Putty. Rolled it up in strips and then used a rubber hammer to seat it. Put all back together. Now I do not have leak and if I do it will drain outside and not on my plywood floor in my shed. We use it just for the washer in the house. Gary (ParkPro)
