Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
Yes - the height is 48". My heater is 60" tall which worked out well since all of the connections and vents were on the the bottom foot or so.

Answer:

the tape supplied is very difficult to get the backing off - I used other tape.

Answer: 
Mine did not. I did have enough to cover the top edges but I guess it depends on how tall your heater actually is.

Answer: 
I had some heat resistant tape left over from another project. It's the same tape you would use to seal up a dryer vent connection. I could have used duct tape since the seam seal was on the outside of the blanket.

48 in. x 75 in. Denim Insulation Hot Water Heater Blanket is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 106.
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 I have wrapped many water heaters in my life time, and this Ultra Touch denim blanket is the BEST... 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 Exactly what I wanted Installation wasn't that difficult and glad not to have itch like one would get from fiberglass.

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.

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.

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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maintain Water Temp Longer Keeps the water heater from working in overload during cold months especially!!! Maintain water temperature in tank longer than without blanket.
