CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Only water heater I will ever own I have two of these in my basement. One is powered and one is for water storage only used in conjunction with our geothermal heat pump. It is a super efficient setup and there is nothing like the peace of mind knowing that you will never come home to a basement full of water. They cost a little more than the average water heater but these are NOT average. These heaters are simply the best. I'm really not sure why anyone would buy a standard water heater that will rust away when these are available. October 24, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Bad Leak Not impressed by this water heater. Had for just under 3 years and the seals went on the heating element. Corrosion is prevalent around both elements due to poor seals. Seal gave way and flooded my house. I bought this heater to avoid just that problem. October 14, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Lifetime Warranty - you have 20 years to go - max The 'lifetime' warranty on Marathon tanks is 20 years. Not your lifetime... October 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Energy Efficient Choice, Life Time Warranty In our area, propane is now more expensive than electricity, so it made sense for us to now convert some of our household appliances from propane to electric versions. Top of the list was our on demand propane water heater. We replaced it with this 50 gl. Super Insulated Water Heater. There is tank type electric water heater which has a better efficiency rating, but it has a fan on top which makes noise while gathering heat from the air in the space to elevate the temp of tap water. I liked this tank for many reasons... first, it is light weight when empty, so I did the installation by myself. The inside tank and exterior are non-corrosive polymer materials... the inside tank being reinforced with spun glass (I viewed the manufacturer's production video). Traditional tank heaters will eventually corrode, even with the cathodic protection that must be periodically replaced. This unit should never require replacement due to corrosion inside or out. The original purchaser given a life time warranty... as long as you own your home. That's a winner for me! We are on whole house solar, so cutting down on all our energy use is key. This water heater has proven to be a smart move, as it remains at temp longer due to super insulation. I have to say that the unit we received doesn't appear like the one in the photo for this listing. It's much larger in diameter and shorter in appearance... I will post a photo of our unit as installed. If you have a tight water heater closet, you may want to carefully measure the diameter of the unit you are purchasing, as this is larger than others I've seen... This unit is more than adequate for a family of four and is definitely the right choice for us being on solar and wanting something that truly conserves our electrical use. I would highly recommend it if you can get over the sticker shock... Figure out if you benefit from converting from propane to electric. Compare what you pay for 27 kwh of electricity with what you currently pay for 1 gl of propane If you are solar powered, electricity is the clean choice anyway... This tank will out last YOU get one December 29, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Keeping the water hot! Although a water heater can't be rated for a while, since longevity is a major factor. We are happy with the product. Was easy to install and provides us with plenty of hot water, even for the dinner, which served 170 people. It was installed in our church and it's so cute, people like to 'pet' it. We are happy it is corrosion resistant and hope that it will last for decades. December 10, 2014
