A: Yes, matter of fact they come with the nipples. But you have to install them yourself. Dont remember if they where brass or stainless. Even had to install the supplied brass drain valve on the bottom.

A: Having a Hot Water Heater fail... especially leak... or flood... is not a pleasant experience. Then one has to be without until they find a plumber... and pay a hefty installation fee. Because of the Stainless Steel Tank and Titanium components... this Heater has the potential to last a Long... Long time.
A: Hi MJ, The comparative quality in this model I found to be unmatched against any other models. My previous water heater had a 6 year warranty, guess how long it lasted? For the price difference, (lifetime warranty), I value my time. If by chance you are a DYER like myself, water heater replacements are not at the top of my list of things to do. The Westinghouse heater has been doing a great job for me, especially in energy savings & longer retention of hot water. Just do your research, you will then understand why I made this choice. Good luck.
A: Just to add to my other answer. I would not pay more for the lifetime one since it is the same as the 6 year. You are just paying for a warranty like some other water heater brands do. I have not had great experiances with HTP. The company that makes these. Still recommended the water heaters and would be hard to find a better one. But the warranty has so many loopholes so close to worthless. First you have to register product and wait for a reply you must save. This has taken an average of 3 weeks for a reply. And other company's dont require you to worry about a reply. Next they changed so now only the tank has the lifetime warranty. Next has to be installed by a licensed plumber. I have installed at least 50 water heaters in my lifetime ( contractor but not a licensed plumber)and it is a simple process that would be hard to mess up so it damaged the heater. For anyone that does some home repair. I feel these two things are unreasonable and makes it look to me like they are going out of their way to have a reason to decline a claim if ever needed. But still not anyother I think is better. Have only been using the brand for 4 years so will wait and see. Also now it is hard to find some water heaters without some type of digital display on the longer warranty models. These you do not want. Used some over the past 15 years. It is just something else for marketing that will go out and triple the problems you can have Just to much heat for unneeded added electronics. The old simple standard systems are best. Like Rheem I think theirs lasted about 2 years before they had a recall on the digital display ones.
A: So a 6 year warranty 40 gallon Rheem performance (#205810668) is $398.00 a 6 year warranty 40 gallon westinghouse (#300903227) is $478.00 The Rheem is not difference than anyother brand. They buy there tanks from the same manufactor in mexico I think it is. The westinghouse has a stainless steel tank. Benefits are well known since they dont rust and dont need an anode rod. And you will find plenty info on internet that tells you that replacing the rod after a few years will extend the life of the tank. So makes since not even needing one since no steel to rust would be better. The only one with a stainless tank . And with 100% stainless elements. Rheem no longer even sells one with stainless coating on the element part like they used to. With no rust no need to ever flush the tank like is recommended with others. With the stainless tank they are the only one that can offer a extended warranty for a lifetime warranty. You do pay for it with buying the same one at $763.00. Which is still much cheaper than the Lifetime Rheem model at $1079.00. And is a composite tank that has had some longterm problems.
