CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 37 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dependable hot water with no unpleasant odor We replaced a 6-year old HW heater with this Rheem Marathon because we were tired of cycling peroxide through the old tank every three weeks because if the reaction to the anode rod from our well water. The difference was instant and it has been nearly 6 months since we replaced the tank. Not only is it more efficient, it is shorter, so fits better in the space. The installation was quick and easy, and the expert installer helpful. We are extremely happy with the unit, and happy we paid extra for this high-quality product. December 11, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by No rust and increased insulation. Love the fact that the tank is all plastic so it won't rust out. I also like the additional insulation on the tank so less energy is used. For the 3 months I've had it, I am pleased. It was a bit more expensive to purchase, but considering I plan to live at this residence for quite some time, I'm hoping it will more than pay for itself in decreased energy consumption and replacement cost since I should not have to purchase another unit as long as I own my home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Looks nice, seemed to work ok. We installed the Marathon Water Heater as part of a home renovation. As soon as the renovation was finished, we drained the heater, turned everything in the house off and headed south for the winter. We had use of the heater for less than a week so a strong opinion is not possible at this time. We will be returning to the home around May 1 of 2015. If we were to be contacted next June we could tell you more. December 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well worth the cost We had the marathon installed when the house was built in 2005. This year we discovered leakage in the basement from the water heater and was thinking of going with something not so expensive until we checked with customer service and they said it was under warranty. Yes, we had to pay the labor fees to the plumber, but received a brand new marathon under the warranty. We would always use the Rheem Marathon. December 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Only 4 months in but so far so good Very light - Easy to transport, easy to move around, easy to position and easy to install. Heats up fast. Insulation is incredible. After initial installation, we went on vacation for 9 days. I turned off water and power to tank since it was newly installed. Upon our return 9 days later, before restoring power to the tank I ran the kitchen sink as a test and the water was still at about 110 degrees. December 10, 2014
