IMO , nail/screw a 2 or 3 ft piece of 2x4 on floor joist , drop rec .
On to the next job.
There is lots of cord on PV water heaters.
Your not holding up the floor , just a waste of time and money fastening a stud floor to ceiling for a rec that's going to be at least 5' off the floor.

The cords are attached down by the gas valve on these things correct? Or are they attached on top with the fan?

Cheaper than a carpenter and would look clean as well.
Wouldn't strut clamps be oriented the wrong way if the EMT is run the same direction as the strut?

They make strut clips that hook in parallel to the strut, can't remember who the manufacturer is right now.

I'll see your industrial grade hackery and raise you a square washer for extra tighten-ability.
