CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 66 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 5 out of 5 by It is all we expected it to be To start with, the delivery went great. The installation was fairly easy as well. The unit is larger than our old one, but we knew that and had the room for it. If you are considering this heater,make sure you have the room as it is larger than some others. Once hooked up, it produced hot water much faster than expected based on the literature provided. We seem to have hotter water delivered faster to all parts of our house now. Don't know if the old unit was just that inefficient, but the new one is getting the credit for the performance. The unit is costly, but we were willing to accept that for the peace of mind of the lifetime warranty on the tank. As a homeowner insurance adjuster, I see ruptured water heaters every week and the damage can be devastating. This unit is also recommended by our local electrical cooperative for its efficiency...and it looks really cool for a water heater! July 23, 2013
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 Good Quality, Easy Install for experienced DIYer Higher price than a standard unit, however the poly tank and no anode provides us with a more reliable unit. The metal unit we replaced this with was probably within a few months of failure due to rusting bottom. The higher price should be offset by not having to replace this unit as soon as a regular metal system. One note - the measurements on the Home Depot specs do not include the preinstalled connections on the top of the unit, the shipping box however does show this measurement which is a few inches higher than on the site, (about 3"). Had measured the place to install prior to ordering and when it arrived had to rethink how to install. We used PEX and copper fittings/connections. Had my brother who has plumbing experience do the soldering. You can see from the photo how we looped the connections since the tank was taller than expected. April 14, 2013
