Weight capacity

Will this stand safely support a fully filled 50 gal. gas water heater? What is the maximum weight this stand can safely support?
Asked by: Anonymous
This stand is very sturdy. I put a 50 gallon water heater on it and once filled, I tried to jiggle it to test the stand and nothing at all moved. Not sure what the max weight capacity is, but my guess is quite a bit more than 400 lbs.

In some areas, it is required, so check your local codes to find out if strapping or bolting is required in your area.

Customer Reviews

Galvanized Steel Water Heater Stand is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely a Must Have All hot water heaters have the drain at the very bottom (for obvious reasons). If you're in an area with hard water, you want to drain and flush the tank periodically (once a year if you can manage) to keep precipitates from building up at the bottom of the tank. If not flushed out, these hard water deposits will hold the heat in close contact with the bottom electric heating element (assuming you have an electric water heater) and it will burn out. You can drain the tank if it's sitting on the floor, but you can't get a good flushing of the tank unless it's raised up off of the floor (gravity is your friend). This table raises the tank up off of the floor which allows you to get a really good flushing action. If you have a gas water heater, you want your tank off of the floor to get it away from potential fuel vapors. It was a bit of a pain to tighten the inside nuts on the legs (watch out for the sharp metal); but it's a very sturdy table.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heater Stand The stand was fantastic. It was easy to assemble and only took about 10 minutes (most of the time spent getting the tools). It is sturdy and provided the perfect size and height for the job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Served it's purpose I needed the stand for a large rain barrel to collect water for my orchids. The barrel weighs 450# when full so I needed something sturdy and this worked great. Also it's cheap.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy Ended up not needing it for the water heater but decided to keep it for it's sturdiness. We have boys in our family and found it works great for anything especially if you need a little table.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't work for us Long story but we have been without hot water for some time;l soon be two weeks. On a quick thought I stopped on the way home and purchased the only stand in this store (Fullerton). Brought it home and measured our 50 gallon tank to determine it would not fit or have overhang. Went by the measurements on the box and those I took from our tank. Honestly I can rate this stand only for not fitting our 50 gallon tank. If you are considering this stand for a smaller tank I suggest reading the other reviews.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Built & Easy To Assemble This unit is made with heavy gaugle steel and found it quite useful to store items on and not have to worry about sagging or a potential collapse. I wish garage shelfs were made this well and have the rust resistance without having to resort to the grey paint.
