Creating Storage From a Water Heater Closet

Danny and Joe welcome callers’ questions each week on the Today’s Homeowner Radio Show.

Here’s a question from our Jan. 18 broadcast:

Anne decided to remove her existing water heater and go tankless. Now she has an extra closet to use but needs help deciding what to do with the drain hole.

We tell Anne pull the drain down since it’s not going to be used.  Plug the end of the pipe using a fitting called a “pipe plug.”  Then, just use 2x4s and a square piece of plywood to finish the hole. 

Listen to the embedded audio clip above for the full answer!
