Marathon Collection Residential Electric Non-Metallic Water Heater with Tall 85 Gallon Tank
The Marathon electric water heater. This water heater's main feature is its non-metallic tank. Why would you want one of these? To start, how about easy installation and service? Marathon's lightweight tank is easy to maneuver and position. The tank bottom is bowl shaped, allowing it to drain completely. Want a tank that is impervious to rust and corrosion? The seamless, blow-molded, polybutene tank delivers. Is it durable? This tank's unmatched strength comes from its multiple layers of filament wound fiberglass. Lightweight? Check. Reduce energy consumption? The Polyurethane insulation helps there. Tough? How about a tough outer shell of molded polyethylene that resists dents, scratches and salt air. Dip tube? Made of high temperature polysulfone. Brass drain valve? Try full-flow brass drain valve, recessed so it is out of the way of brooms and scrubbers. Temperature and pressure relief valve? Standard. Even the heating elements benefit from Rheem's years of water heater experience. The upper heating element is thermally fused to protect against dry-firing while the titanium lower element brings superior resistance to lime build-up. Rheem brings all this together and backs it up with a limited lifetime warranty that's "...warranted not to leak as long as you own your home."* And while it may not be bullet proof, the man a steel could retire knowing there's a superhero in your home.
