CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 58 reviewers.
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 Great Water Heater Ordered this water heater a few weeks ago. HD matched a lower price at Menards. Delivery was exactly on time, with a lift truck to drop off at my home on pallet. Surprised at how light it was. Had done a lot of research and this unit always came out on top and with a lifetime tank warranty and excellent recovery time. I used this unit to replace 2 80 gallon units that had lasted 28 years. It is well made and installation was incredibly easy- took about 20 minutes total. Had hot water in less than 20 minutes. All looks great and only hope it lasts 25 years ! Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Should be the last water heater I buy. The installation was easy. I only needed to buy brass nipples and flex tubing to connect. Should last forever. The only thing that might fail is the heater element. February 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really nice unit! I looked at a lot of options for replacing my 26 year old Rheem unit. In the end, a lifetime tank won out over all the fancy and VULNERABLE digital doodads of some of the others. I like that I have a permanent tank and tried and true thermastat/element system that will be simple and cheap to replace when necessary. I've have more than my share of sensitive electronics failures. This thing is HUGE, but that's because it has a ton of insulation built in. It's light enough for one person to handle and install and the fittings are standard, so installation is a snap unless you have to move plumbing to accomodate the larger physical size. I've had good service from Rheem products, and am glad to see this one in my house! May 13, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by As advertised, easy to move and install. Installed a 85 gal. unit on February 15, 2014. Unit is easy to move and transport. The box is big, it fit in the back of my highlander sticking out the back hatch somewhat. The installation directions are easy to understand and install was straight forward even for a first time water heater install project. Took about 2 hours total from draining old unit to turning on new one. We had hot water in about an hour with very cold cold water. February 26, 2014
