    Seth,

    As this is an Electrical Appliance location isn't an issue.

    It does need a flow pipe with a 2" air gap for the TPR valve.

    Needs a catch pan and drain installed.

    Receptacle needs a cover installed.

    Seems pretty obvious to me. Why are you asking?

    Water heater appears to be amateur installation. Among the deficiencies are lack of TPR valve extension, unprotected Romex-type wiring, lack of proper wire clamp. Recommend full review of water heater system and repair as needed by licensed plumbing/electrical contractor.

    Matthew,

    That's just asking for the same plumber who installed that joke to come back in and bless his installation.

    Instead, say it this way:

    First, list everything you see wrong, then ' "repair as needed by licensed plumbing/electrical contractor" including but not limited to all above noted items and any other items found or created during those repairs'.
