I installed my water heater outside of my home in a shed. The 24 inch rubber water tank cushion allowed me to get the water heater off the plastic water heater pan and protects it from rust. I am using it under a 45 gallon water heater. The tank cushion is made in the USA and made of 100% recycled tires and comes with a 25 year warranty. Definitely worth the price.

This is a step in the right direction but . . . a 300-400 lb water heater is usually in a tight, confined area. The only way to try and get it under there after installation is tipping it, which I HIGHLY suggest you NOT do. So, what now, you're supposed to call up a plumber and pay him hundreds of dollars to disconnect all your fittings and somehow magically move this perfectly into position and then get the water heater on TOP of this rubber non-slip base? Perhaps on a new build you can slip one of these in before it fills with water, but most people don't think ahead; they look for ways to save money when they have already spent it and are already desperate, which for the high cost of this remolded rubber may just break the bank. Practically every single water heater comes with metal bases so I'm wondering if the manufacturers of this product removed them (which I'm pretty sure breaks code) to sell this product? I sure hope they're not trying to create a problem to sell a solution; that's the government's job. Furthermore, how about the warm air space created by the burner between the tank and the concrete? Increasing this area might actually waste energy (think of a group of people huddling/you would get colder as you move apart). Therefore on some models/types I wouldn't be surprised if after installation this used tire would cause your energy bills to INCREASE, though I WOULD be surprised how they got it on there without using a crane/hoist. After I wasted half an hour fiddling with it and bent up the air pipe, I realized that it simply won't work without risking severe damage to the surrounding plumbing and the possibility of injury or worse, a gas leak . . . Sure, it's a nice idea for getting rid of used tires BUT I believe you could easily do this with some other material, not something that will cost you anything. IF you do have an electric heater that's standing directly on the concrete for whatever reason, then it should help IF you can get it under there somehow, but again, you can use some free wood blocks, which have a MUCH higher center of gravity or something of the sort. I imagine if you're trying to save money on energy you won't be too picky either in terms of looks. Sure, wood is flammable, but add some gas and . . . so is rubber. The design of the product itself is nice however; being able to drain any water, though if you have a leak from the INSIDE of the tank then you need it serviced anyways. Pro-tip: make sure you have a drain directly by your tank if possible, as some old houses might not (check).

ECO-Friendly way to extend the life of your water heater and to save energy Model # WP2424HD Internet #305235311 Technoflex 24 in. Recycled Rubber Water Heater Tank Cushion I wrapped my water heater to help reduce the energy loss. Until now there hasn't been a good way to insulate the bottom of the water heater. Technoflex has created from 100% recycled tires a cushion that will not only insulate the bottom of your water heater (barrier from the coolness transmitted from the concrete slab) but keep it away from moisture that can cause rust. The treads under the cushion (see photo) will allow air circulation under the water heater to reduce the rusting process The ring can support more than 2200 lbs./sq. in. The universal size (24 in.) fits all water heater and will fit inside the OATEY water heater pan. In the event of a water leak, the treads will permit the water to escape. The only drawback is that if this isn't a new install you have to drain your water heater to be able to lift it up to put the cushion underneath. Manufacture's Comments: - Reduces energy costs - Moisture resistant - High resistance to compression - Made from 100% recycled tires - Eco-friendly - Fits inside a water heater pan - 25-year warranty

The idea of product is sound: A) Add a spacer to elevated the tank to prevent rusting if there is any water leak under the tank. B) Provide a thermal break between the bottom of the electric hot water tank and a cold concrete floor to prevent loss of heat through convection. "Convection is the process of losing heat through the movement of air or water molecules across the surface". However, I question why someone would need to spend $ 25 to elevate the tank when adding three or four cheap bricks to the bottom of the tank above the drip pan would do the same functions as items A and B listed above. Bottomline: Save yourself some money and use cheap bricks instead.
