Description for Bradford White M-2-65R6DS

Please Note: This product comes standard as a 240V model. This product is also available in 120V, 208V, 277V, 480V. Please call customer service if you require one of these non-standard voltages.

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 65 Gallon - Energy Saver Electric Residential Water Heater:

I've worked for an HVAC company that installed water heaters and i have an account at a Rheem dealer.For some reason they could'nt get me my old 65 gallon water heater but got me a Bradford White. This Hydrojet they sold me was extremely compatible with the old Rheem and the hook up was so easy. I can't wait for the efficiency to pay off. I recommend this product with flying colors.

      Replacing a Bradford White 65 Gallon Electric installed 9/18/2003. Very pleased with the service and recovery rate for heating. Replacing on 1/23/2014 with the same model. The slight premium in cost was worth it, so I'm choosing the same model again.
