Opinion on Vaughn Indirect tanks?

forever. IF, this is the same tank as the old Ford stone lined? They were used for solar tanks and I have a couple in my shop and home that are 20 years old.

They hold there heat a long time after the sun goes down, also :)

Not for lightweights to install.

    Anybody have any long-term experiance with these? From what I have seen Vaughn Indirect water Heaters are manufactured in New England, and their selling feature seems to be a thick stone lining to protect the steel tank. Although I have not put one in, there is a local supply house that is pumpin' these out like hot cakes..... I wonder if they are just cheaper?

    I have used...

    plenty of theses in the past...they were ok. The new design (top performer) does give you a faster recovey than the old HX40. They listen to contractors about making improvements.Their selling point is also there weak point...the cement lining. VERY heavy. I supose that is the only reason I don't use them much. Other than that they are fine.kpc

    I found

    the gaskets can be prone to leaking and the recovery not very fast.

    The newer tanks do have a better recovery than the old tanks which was right up there with electric HWH :(.
