Looking for the best 60 gallon natural gas hot water tank.

cruzmislFebruary 6, 2012

Hi All,

I have a rental hot water tank and the price just keeps going up and up even though I've had the same tank for 8 years. I've had enough and want to buy my own. I want to buy a good quality unit but don't know where to start. Any ideas? I need a power vent unit since that's what I have now.

Thanks,

Joe

It's kind of like asking what is the BEST car. Ask three people, and get three different answers :)

AO Smith, Rheem, or Bradford White are the three manufactures, and the three choices you have when it comes to tank water heaters.

Since most (I stress most) plumbing / heating contractors here in the Chicago area handle Bradford White, I would say that kind of speaks volumes of product integrity, therefore it is the brand that I just had installed 5 months ago.

I will add that the Bradford White is the only one totally US owned and manufactured (Michigan). Yes, there are other ones made here in the US, but they also have operations in other countries (i.e Mexico, China)

Good luck!
Good luck!
