I've got a pair of customers who placed a water heater 15-20 FEET from their living room, and complain about a constant popping. What causes the popping?

my best guess would b the thermostat cycling on or off
Why? I came into this game for the action, the excitement. Go anywhere, travel light, get in, get out, wherever there's trouble, a man alone. Now they got the whole country sectioned off, you can't make a move without a form
