Nice stand alone unit, works great for my family of 5. Heavy for install, help will be required. Shipping company is the most difficult part of the transaction but other than a reschedule due to a snowstorm it all worked out. Just plan to stay on top of them to ensure good communication.

Brand new 75 gallon tank manufactured in June 2015 says on sticker. I am already having issues with the Thermostat. Glad I have a 10 year warranty with AO Smith. We will see how that goes... Should have just fired a plumber to go tankless and be done with it....

Comments about 74 Gallon ProMax High Recovery 10 Yr Warranty Residential Water Heater (Nat Gas):

This water heater replaced an old Kenmore water heater. I had the old water heater set near the maximum tyemperature (that's what I had done since I bought the house) and after installing the new AO Smith water heater, I had to turn it WAAAAY down to not scald myself. It runs quietly and efficiently. I am VERY happy with the purchase of this water heater and highly recommend it.

Comments about 74 Gallon ProMax High Recovery 10 Yr Warranty Residential Water Heater (Nat Gas):

We've only had the unit a week. It is a massive improvement over what we had. We have it set a the "A" temperature level and the water is plenty hot.
We haven't tested the capacity yet but it has performed up to, and beyond, expectations.

Like hot water? You'll love this water heater.

By Rè shuǐ

Comments about 74 Gallon ProMax High Recovery 10 Yr Warranty Residential Water Heater (Nat Gas):

We purchased this unit to replace a 13-year-old AO Smith 74-gallon water heater in our 3 1/2 bath home that includes a jetted tub.

We opted for the 10-year warranty to be on the safe side since it was not that much more than the unit with a 6-year warranty.

We chose this specific model over an equivalent Bradford White because of its thicker insulation which means less heat loss and lower gas bills.

One thing we noticed immediately after the unit was put in service is our water gets a lot hotter a lot faster than it did with the older unit. We adjusted the temperature from the "B" setting (old unit) to the "A" setting (new unit) which means we get the water reaches the same temperature without burning as much fuel.

The unit is ~1 1/2" wider in diameter than the older water heater so that is something to keep in mind if your water heater is in a tight space.

Comments about 74 Gallon ProMax High Recovery 10 Yr Warranty Residential Water Heater (LP Gas):

Very happy with this water heater. Replaced an AO Smith 50 gallon tank for this one. Lots of hot water. Delivery for this unit was outstanding. Driver also helped me bring it into the basement. Supply House has the best customer service and I highly recommend them. My plumber was even impressed with this waterheater and how fast it heats the water.

Excellent transaction!

By Gary

from Denton, TX

Verified Buyer

Comments about 74 Gallon ProMax High Recovery 10 Yr Warranty Residential Water Heater (Nat Gas):

My AO Smith 75 gallon gas water heater is 13 years old and still giving me good service. I shopped for quite a while for another one to have on hand when the original finally fails, so I don't have to wait for one to be ordered or pay extortion prices. I found SupplyHouse.com's website and saw the water heater for $876 including shipping and a 10-year warranty, so I ordered it on Thursday. My local dealer wanted $1800 for the same water heater plus tax and $600 for installation. SupplyHouse shipped it on Monday and I received it in excellent condition on Saturday. Communication was excellent as was the entire transaction. Highly recommended!
