      • Seems like a really good replacement

      I bought this to replace a 7 year old 40 gallon Rheem. Our city has has 32 grain hard water so I noticed small leaks on the inlet and outlet valves on my prior model while installing a new water softener. My local gas company offers a $100 rebate for this model since it is .69 Energy Star so this made this purchase a sensible one. I used my own plumber who did the job for 2/3rds of what HD's contractors wanted. The unit itself is a nice platinum gray color with a cool automated exhaust cap. You will need electric for this since the pilot is on demand as well. The unit has a really good warranty and I plan to drain a few quarts of water out the bottom every quarter and eventually replace the annode rod to extend the life beyond the 12 year warranty period. I can't speak to reliability as I have only had it for about 8 hours but so far it does its job.
