Description for Bradford White M-2-50S6DS

NOTE: The standard voltage on this unit is 240V.

Bradford White's Energy Saver upright electric model features the power of the Hydrojet® Total Performance System and the convenience of electricity. Available in single and double element models (M-2-120 not available as a single element model), these water heaters give you the power you need to heat water with electricity.


  • DOE - All residential storage models meet or exceed efficiency requirements of the Department of Energy, ASHRAE Standard 90.1 b (current standard) and the National Appliance Energy Conservation Act of 1987 recent amendment effective January 20, 2004 which supersedes all state and local efficiency requirements.
  • Fully Automatic Controls - Fast acting surface-mount thermostats for automatic temperature control. Factory installed sensitive manual reset energy cutoff for safety to prevent overheating.
  • Direct Heat Transfer With Immersed Elements - Transfers heat directly and efficiently to the water. Screw-in style.
  • Factory Installed Hydrojet® Total Performance System - Cold water inlet sediment reducing device helps prevent sediment build up in tank. Increases first hour delivery of hot water while minimizing temperature build up at top of tank.
  • Vitraglas® Lining - Bradford White tanks are lined with an exclusively engineered formula that provides superior protection from the highly corrosive effects of hot water. This formula (Vitraglas®) is fused to the steel surface by firing at a temperature of over 1600º F.
  • 2" Non-CFC Foam Insulation - Covers the sides and top of the tank, reducing the amount of heat loss. This results in less energy consumption, improved operation efficiencies and jacket rigidity.
  • Water Connections - 3/4" NPT factory installed true dielectric fittings extend water heater life and eases installation (M-2-120R has 1" NPT dielectric waterway fittings).
  • Factory Installed Heat Traps - Design incorporates a flexible disk that reduces heat loss in piping and eliminates the potential for noise generation (Except M-2-120R).
  • Protective Magnesium Anode Rod - Provides added protection against corrosion for long trouble-free service.
  • Simultaneous and Non-Simultaneous Operation Available - Simultaneous operation indicates when both elements (if equipped) are being heated at the same time. Non-Simultaneous operation indicates when one element is being heated at a time.
  • Single Phase or Three Phase Operation Available (277V may only be wired for single phase operation).
  • T&P Relief Valve Included - All models have special tapping on top of tank.
  • Brass Drain Valve - Tamper proof design.
  • Design evaluated by UL in accordance with Part 280.707(d) of HUD Mobile Home Construction and Safety Standards for Energy Efficiency.

Comments about 50 Gallon - Energy Saver Electric Residential Water Heater (Optional Hand Hole Cleanout Available):

Our A O Smith LP power vent 50 Gal water heater broke down. I called a local plumber who only uses Bradford White water heaters. I decided to switch to an electric heater. The service was prompt. It took him about 3 hours to wire and install the new heater the next day of my call. The BW heater produced hot water in less than an hour. It's working well so far for a week now. Our many thanks to him.

    Many retailers offer models with "6 year" or "12 year" models. Is M250S6DS given an estimated life?
    Asked on 2/27/2014 by Selah from Oriental, NC

    1 answer



      + I would say in general that longevity greatly depends on the water hardness and its effects on the heater elements along with scale buildup in the tank. Soft water will increase the life of the tank, while high mineral content requires replacing elements before the end of the tank’s normal life. Yearly flushing of mineralized build up below the bottom element helps, but becomes more difficult to remove with age. At some point it becomes more cost effective to just replace the tank.

      According to the manufacturer, this water heater has been designed and certified for the purpose of heating potable water. The installation and use of this water heater for any purpose other than the heating of potable water, may cause damage to the water heater and create a hazardous condition and nullify the warranty.
