    Default Wall mounted water heater platform secure?

    Hi,

    While inspecting a condo I found they had a suspended water heater but it was attached both to the ceiling and the wall (usually its one or the other). And it is attached to the wall using screws. The water heater is a 47 Gal. I think it needs to be secured by something stronger like bolts. I am even wondering if it is a manufactured platform or contractor made. What do you guys think?

    Not a big deal. This weighs less than 500 lbs and is a dead load. As long as I saw no deflection or other distress I would nod and move on.
