A: It worked great,I used the METALIC 2inch tape to close and to seal it to heater, I did also insulate ducts of heated air going to home with insulation and the WATER LINES going to services .KEEP THAT HOT WATER IN
A: best water heater cover and it proved itself when the electricity went out for 3 1/2 days and the water was still warm after all that time
A: I had it on the hot water heater for as long as I lived at the house. I don't believe it is, but the covering did make the hot water heater more efficient.
A: The insulation is treated to be fire resistant as indicated in the FAQs on the manufacturer’s website: https://www.bondedlogic.com/ultratouch-denim-insulation/
A: It is fire retardant. It has a class A fire rating which basically means fire won't spread quickly through it.
A: The rating and testing states ( FLAME RETARDENT ). I would say no not flamable ,it is a GREAT WATER MAINTAINER of holding temperature of water real well.Do measure the circumfrence of you water heater.
A: Yes... I bought a water heater over two years ago, height was 48" tall, 75 inches around... and this insulation was way more than I probably really need it, but it works perfect.
A: Not as is,I would take TWO blankets end to end CUT OF the extra left ,use the METALIC TAPE to secure to heater
A: I bought this blanket last year- easy to install, worked as advertised and large enough to fit around the water heater with overlap. Recommended
A: I used mine to cover a 40 gal water system pressure tank. Tank is about 20 inches in diameter, 5 feet tall. Blanket barely made it but did cover it to my satisfaction. Blanket comes with metallic tape which I used to pull blanket closed. If 50 gal heater is similar in size blanket should be adequate.
A: I need to know the height and diameter of the tank, in order to answer that question.
A: I would measure around your heater. I put this around a friends and it was about 4 inches short.I did fill in with some extra foam I had.Does it work? YES.It does help keep the water protected from extra cooling and running to keep heated
A: The manufacturer for the Rheem water heater advises that insulation not be put on their water heaters, as it may damage the electronic control system. The insulation on their hot water tanks are more than than sufficient.
