 Power vent
Author: Matt07c (NY)

My ao smith power vented hot water heater just leaked out of the bottom of the tank after 10 years. I went to Lowe’s and purchased another ao smith hot water heater that came with an attachment for a metal vent. Would this heater work with my old power vent?

No. You need to get a power vent heater.

i'm not 100% sure but i think you can buy another power vented heater without the external parts(the same brand) and reuse the vent assembly etc ???
