getting a new tank gas water heater
I've been researching these things and have generally gotten the impression that the Sears types (Kenmore, WHirlpool) are not good. The one we have now, Ruud, has lasted us well and we have been happy with it-- has lasted over 12 years. SHould I go with the same brand, or is there one that is now considered more reliable?
We had this water heater while we had two teens, and they are out of the nest now. Our house is a 4 BR, 2.5 bath home, and the water is softened.
