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.

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High R-value, easy installation, no scratchy fiberglass Wanted this for two purposes. First, since my water heater is in the garage next to a wall which abuts our kitchen pantry, the inside back of the pantry gets warm--not ideal for food storage. Secondly, of course anything which helps to retain heat in our gas water heater would be a good thing. Installation was relatively easy for one person after I watched a YouTube video on how to make cuts for the relief valve, how to secure with the provided foil tape, and how to position the blanket relative to the heating element. The denim insulation means you don't need to wear gloves like you would had the insulation been fiberglass. All together this took me about 30 minutes, the majority of which was working the blanket around tight spaces, plus getting the backing off of the foil tape (get someone with fingernails to help!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MADE in USA! NO fiberglass! I had to order this online. It should be sold in every Home Depot store because it is MADE in USA. NO fiberglass. Reasonably priced. First time I ever did this and no special tools needed. Measure height and distance around your hot water heater. I cut blanket to size with a large household scissor. Used Gorilla type tape and the tape that came with the item. Read the instructions and online reviews for ideas about how to fit it to my size heater. Patched around the areas that should stay exposed on a gas hot water heater with the short side of the blanket and parts trimmed off the long side. You can do this, too. Save some energy and save American Jobs!

It appeared to work ok, as I installed it and pressed it hard against the blanket while joining ends. Everything looked good. Except that when I climbed up there a couple of months later, all the tape was peeled off, away from the blanket! Not a hind of adhesive remains on it. Useless. Had it not been that I had used my own duct tape on the top, on a X-pattern, to hold the blanket in place while setting it in place, the blanket would have fallen off.

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. :-)

Huge plus - not fiberglass, you don't need gloves and you won't itch after working with it! Mine was missing the tape that was to be included, I used duck tape, but wasn't happy with it. If I was doing it again, I would choose another type of tape. Do pay attention to the size when you order, I had to cut it and use both pieces to get it wrapped around my 30 gallon tank.
