painting in garage... water heater concerns?
hey all.. nice site.. i've been lurking for a while but finally had a question worthy of registering for..
anyway, heres my issue... i just moved into a new house, and i'm planning to get a 60 gallon compressor so that i can run decent air tools and spray paint in my garage..
the problem is my gas hot water heater is in my garage, and i'm concerned that if i try to spray any paint i will get a free sun tan courtesy of flammable paint fumes..
do i have a legitimate concern or am i being over paranoid? can i just turn the heater to "off" while i spray and until the garage thoroughly airs out? when the heater kicks on open flame is in clear view inside the heater..
sorry if this is a common sense question.. thanks for any advice..
