The water heater is fine but hard to give a fair judgment when it has only been installed for less than a week. So far it does meet our expectations. However what we are concerned about is the length of time it took to arrive; 15 days!

The water heater works well. The only problem as getting one that wasn't damaged. The first two tanks i ordered looked as if they dropped them off the back of the truck. Also it takes atleast 3 weeks to recieve one because these are not a stocked iteam.

Everything was fine. The water heater had a dent from shipping. It was relatively easy to put in. Once we got it all hooked up it fired right up and has been working great since.
