Opinions on Bradford White water heaters.


My 9 year old GE\RHEEM Home Depot special HW heater is failing and of course the warranty expired 2 months ago. =/  My plumber uses Bradford White tank heaters for replacements. Anyone have one? Installed one? Opinions?

    Bradford White

    Go with the Brad/White, It's the only residential tank heater we sell.

    Make sure you flush about 5 - 10 gallons out through the drain valve every 3 months on the new one.

    You mean...

    One of the Wall participants has a water heater named after him??? :-)

    Jeez, I am JEALOUS. Maybe I will change my name to Allen Oliver Smith or something crazy.

    Gotta keep up with the Wallie Whites ;-)

    It's not so much a case of "You got what you paid for", as it is a matter of "You DIDN'T get what you DIDN'T pay for, and you're NOT going to get what you thought you were in the way of comfort". Borrowed from Heatboy.

    Brad is a very special fellow. I've put my arms around him, picked him up and hugged him on many occasions. :)

    The Bradford-White M4 series heaters

    are EnergyStar certified now. They do cost a bit more but the savings should be worth it. We've installed a bunch and like them a lot.
