Rated 5 out of 5Â by CRABBY Much larger than tank I replaced. Old tank was 34 gallons; this one is 62 Gallons.
Only drawback was that on the box, it indicated a 16" T required, so I purchased it. Actually, a 14" T would have worked, for me, and still would have had plenty of clearance. No big deal; just a little more expensive and I didn't want to waste time to take it back. If using old pipes, make sure that you tape them very well to prevent leakage.
To be honest, I have not heard or felt the pump turn on while using shower or bath. Which based on other reviews may lead to a small reduction in energy costs. We can only hope.
In addition to Home Depot's MUCH APPRECIATED 10% Military Discount offered, the other reviews were extremely helpful in making my decision to purchase this item.
Also, this item was much more expensive on their competitor's website. Check it out, you will see the difference in price for the same item.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by bruinman86 Great product
This tank is a much larger upgrade from the 42 gal. tank it replaces. The only issue was that the fitting at the bottom is 1 1/4" and not the 1" the average t-pipe is. So be sure to get the necessary PVC adapter to reduce it to the proper thread size. Also be aware that if you do not use the proper adapter fittings, the T-pipe may not extend out enough for the pressure switch to clear the tank enough so you can be able to take the pressure switch cover off for wiring. Other than that, it was a slick install. With 5 people in my house taking showers, you don't even feel the water pressure change like we did before. Great tank.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Austin A basic breeze
To date this has been a pleasure. I say 'to date' as a qualifier only because of the issue in the Rating part of this Review the Product Quality has not played out. Such will be a postscript note for the life of the product; hence why I only ranked it as average.
Other than that the experience has been great from online ordering, receipt at local HomeDepot pick-up, through installation. In my case I was just replacing an existing tank that had failed after 30 years of service. As a homeowner with a reasonable good aptitude for doing home repair stuff, swapping the units out, although initially seemingly daunting by reading the instruction manual, was a breeze apart from allocating the time for the exercise. In the Rating for Value I gave it an excellent, because of the ease of installation. Our local pump & well company was going to charge me about three times the cost, which is fine to itself; but better the cash in my pocket in this case.
One last point is that although the referenced sizing specs are correct, I believe HomeDepot has the wrong image posted above for the HT62B gallon tank, as the visual proportions are not correct (at least as of this date.)

Rated 4 out of 5Â by 1946apple Well satisfied with tank
Tank has a smallish dent on the top, other than that I'm satisfied with the purchase. They probably need to revisit their packaging techniques.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by aromatic90 So far so good
Has only been on line for a week, so can't say much about quality except it is working as expected, and it certainly looks solid. The tank was shipped to a local store and on arrival it had a couple of significant dents in the top and bottom. So the transportation could have been better... thought about taking it back but then decided it was just an aesthetic issue and not worth the trouble.
