What's your favorite jacketed electric water for use as a storage tank?

What's your favorite jacketed electric water for use as a storage tank? Is there a value leader in the 40 gallon range? I've heard of people removing the heating elements and piping the supply and return there.



What are your thoughts?

    Value:

    There are only a few water heater tank manufacturers. They are very competitively priced. I personally think that a 50 gallon tank is the best bang for the money spent.

    If you are going to use it as a "side-arm" heater/storage tank, you do not need to remove any elements. However, if you insist, remove the bottom element and send the hot into there. There is no advantage to removing both elements. I've never removed ANY elements in years of using tanks.

    Tank linings

    Thanks for the tips. Any tank linings to be mindful of for use in a closed system?

    Don't install the tank in a location (like behind a boiler) where it becomes a PITA to remove the tank.
