Great water heater

By Joe

Comments about 50 Gallon ProMax 6 Yr Warranty Residential Gas Water Heater - Short Model:

Pretty much endless hot water. One thing I would note is that the nipples are so close to the draft hood that you can't connect a union directly to them.

There was a small dent on the back side from shipping but it didn't affect the heater or tank so dented water heater is better than no water heater.

Comments about 50 Gallon ProMax 6 Yr Warranty Residential Gas Water Heater - Short Model:

This product fits perfectly into my older home where space is tight. At the same time it allowed me to upgrade my capacity to 50 gallons with a top of the line water heater. It was about half the price I could find anywhere else. Great deal. Great water heater.

      The anode rod on this model could be on the top of the water heater at the 2:00 position, or if the t/p is mounted there then it is attached to the hot water nipple side.

    Which is the more efficient R-Value 8 or 16 ?

      A:

      R-value is a measure of insulation quality. Higher R-values more effectively stop heat loss.

    Q:

    I saw the response that the GCVL-50 was the same as the GCV-50 other than physical size. The specs show a significantly different R-value though; can you confirm what the R-value is for both models?

      The listed R-values are correct. These models will also have a different first hour delivery rating.
