      • The best water heater we've ever owned
      • October 28, 2011

      This is by far the very best water heater we have ever owned. We installed a 50 gal unit, 11 years ago, and still today we have had to do nothing to it at all. No leaks, rust, just good efficiency. We are adding on to the house and glad homedepot sells these now since this price is way better than what we paid over 11 years ago. Glad to see them selling these.
