:We simply put this not on our drawings which on every project has been
:sufficient:
:
:Water heater shall be anchored or strapped top and bottom 1/3 to prevent
:horizontal displacement due to earthquake.
:
:Straps (kit) for this anchorage are sold at Home Depot or any other supply
:warehouse. Very simple to install and also very common.
:
:Just add the note, you'll be fine.

:Regards,

:I don't do a lot of residential work, but I've got a plan check correction
:on one such project which reads "Provide seismic anchorage for water
:heater.
:CPC 510.5".
:
:What is normally done to comply? A note? A detail?
:
:Aren't there kits at Home Depot for this?
:
:I don't want to "over-engineer" (I HATE that term!) this thing, but I want
:to address it once and once only. I told my client I could provide a WF
:frame which would be adequate. He responded "Would those be Seismic Demand
:Category A or Category B welds?". At least I've got him thinking in the
:right direction :o).

:Thanks,
