Rheem vs lochinvar water heaters - city permits
We are new house owners and our water heater broke and warranty is not there. A local plumber quoted $695 with 38000 BTU water Rheem water heater with magnesium anode rod and brass drain value without the city permit.
A local company quoted $1006 for lochinvar water heater with 40000 BTU with the city permit and $1200 for 50000 BTU with city permit.
Is one brand better over the other. Any suggestions on which route we should go?
Or should we buy a unit from Home depot / lowes and find a plumber to install it?
