Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Burner 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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by snakepudding 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.

No surprises. Was sturdy. I thought it was overpriced but it did the job.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cindy WattsGalvanized Steel Water Heater Stand
Design flaws. Had to take a hammer to it to get the legs in.
Seems like it will endure. There should be notes or instructions that state it is important to screw screws and bolts in very tight to keep it stable. I had screwed them in but when my husband saw it he had me screw it in even tighter. He said with his plumbers experience he found that it could fail or not be as stable if not screwed in tightly. Also, I had to return the first one that I bought because it was missing all the screws and bolts. The second one I purchased did have all the screws and bolts.

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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Great product!
This water heater stand was very easy to assemble in about 15 minutes. It is very sturdy once assembled and all bolts are tightened. It gets the water heater up off of the floor to allow room to hook up the secondary drain line coming off of the drain pan.
Sure, one can build a stand using one's own materials, but not in 15 minutes. How much is your time worth? It made sense for me to just use this prefabricated stand.
