my water heater tank is 80 gallons

Any ideas in how to wrap this insulation blanket around an 80 gallon water heater?
Asked by: Pepper
You will need 2, maybe 3 depending on height. This is the safest material used in blankets. It will also last the longest. It will not make you itch while installing, but do wear a mask for the lint that will appear.

Is 48" the height?

My water heater is 4' tall and 6' around. Is this blanket the right size for me?
Asked by: Katie
It is a simple rectangle. 48 inches is the height if you look at it "landscape" style. But it is the width if you look at it in "portrait" style.

48 in. x 75 in. Denim Insulation Hot Water Heater Blanket is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 117.

I have wrapped many water heaters in my life time, and this Ultra Touch denim blanket is the BEST!!! Everything I read from the manufacturer was correct and with the all the highly rated reviews, I am glad I went with this one. Yes, it is much easier to install with someone else helping you, but all blankets are this way. I have a 50 gallon medium width tank and the 48" X 75" blanket was a perfect fit. The tape that came with was superior than the extra ducting tape I was going to use. I made sure I measured the cuts of tape for all areas before I started to cut. There was just enough tape. Though this is denim and did not create any dust or itchiness for my wife and I, I do suggest using gloves, dish washing gloves would work best to hold the blanket in place while you tape. Best buy and now I water stays hot longer and our electricity (we have an electric water heater) is down - just in time for winter. We are a happy cozy couple of bears now. :-)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth IT Measuring: You better wrap the thing around your tank first and then cut. Instructions said to measure the circumference add 3" but it was short a bit. Next time, I'd lay it around the tank and see how much to trim. Other than that it was an easy diy project. Also, the bag says it's 75" long but layed on the floor next to a measuring tape it fell short at 73". Just an FYI. Thick and easy to work with denim filled metallic finish. Metallic tape came in package. $28 is worth the trouble.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an Exclusive Product! After enclosing the condominium porch, where the water heater is located, the heat loss from the water heater had to be reduced as part of my effort to reduce the air conditioning load. This is an outstanding product that fully enveloped the thirty gallon low profile water heater. However small, I look forward to savings on water heating and air conditioning.

This is an interesting product in its environmental positives: it saves the consumer money by conserving energy and the environment by recycling waste fabric. BUT: I found in my sample of two bundles (although I have read others having the same experience) the contents of the package are actually more like 48 in. x 65 in., thereby significantly smaller than represented. Also, it is fairly irregularly cut in that it is not a perfect rectangle. It seems to be hand-cut by someone who did not give a dang. Finally, the density, or thickness, is a bit irregular. Some patches seemed a little thin. I used it by cutting it up into smaller pieces to close off air conditioner vents for the winter. It is not too difficult to cut with ordinary craft scissors and it seems to be doing the job for which it was intended. I would not be so sure about it as a water heater blanket, though, and I certainly would not be dependent of the packaging dimensions.

Was no problem to work with. very strong shell. Might need 2 for larger water heaters. This model is made for a residential 50 gallon tall water heater, this project came out like artwork!. This is the safest and best performing blanket on the market, way-to-go Home Depot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy DIY install This product was relatively easy to install myself. My tank is 100 gallons, so I needed two to fully cover. The included tape was not enough, so I finished with Gorilla tape. You will need heavy shears to cut the product as it is thick. Very happy with this product. It is as other reviewers wrote.

I had a struggle getting it around my water heater because of tight space, but I succeeded without damaging the blanket at all. Pretty amazed at that. The included foil tape was more than enough for the job. I would definitely recommend.

Too soon to tell if any savings on electric bill but my hot water seems to last a longer in the shower.
