Description for Bradford White M-I-40T6FBN-TOPTP

PLEASE NOTE: This water heater cannot be sold to residents of certain southern California zip codes due to Air Quality Regulations. To view a list of zip codes where this heater cannot be installed, click here.

This Bradford White water heater utilizes a draft diverter and is atmospherically vented. It is perfect for many standard water heating applications. This specific model features an optional top T&P location.

Features:

  • Bradford White ICON System - Intelligent gas control with proven millivolt powered technology and built-in piezo igniter. A standard, off the shelf thermopile converts heat energy from the pilot flame into electrical energy to operate the gas valve and microprocessor. No need for external electricity.
    • Enhanced Performance - Proprietary algorithms provide enhanced First Hour Delivery ratings and tighter temperature differentials.
    • Advanced Temperature Control System - Microprocessor constantly monitors and controls burner operation to maintain consistent and accurate water temperature levels.
    • Intelligent Diagnostics - An exclusive green LED light prompts the installer during start-up and provides ten different diagnostic codes to assist in troubleshooting.
    • Pilot On Indication - Flashing green LED provides positive indication that pilot is on.
    • Separate Immersed Thermowell - High strength advanced polymer composite thermowell provides isolation between electric temperature sensor and surrounding water. No need to drain the tank when removing gas valve.
  • Advanced ScreenLok® Technology Flame Arrestor Design - Flame arrestor is designed to prevent ignition of flammable vapor outside of the water heater.
  • Resettable Thermal Switch - Proven and reliable bimetallic switch prevents burner and pilot operation in case of ongoing flammable vapor burn inside of the combustion chamber or restricted air flow.
  • Maintenance Free - No regular cleaning of air inlet openings or flame arrestor is required under normal conditions.
  • Sight Window - Offers a view into the combustion chamber to observe the operation of the pilot and burner.
  • 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 in tank.
  • Vitraglas® Lining - Bradford White tanks are lined with a exclusively engineered enamel 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 1600ºF.
  • 1" Non-CFC Foam Insulation - Covers the sides and top of tank, reducing the amount of heat loss. This results in less energy consumption, improved operation efficiencies and jacket rigidity.
  • Pedestal Base.
  • Water Connections -3/4" NPT factory installed true dielectric fittings.
  • Factory Installed Heat Traps.
  • Protective Magnesium Anode Rod.
  • 3x4 "Snap Lock" Draft Diverter - Allows either 3" or 4" vent connections with inputs of 40,000 BTU/Hr or less. Over 40,000 BTU/Hr. has the 4" "Snap Lock" Draft Diverter.
  • T&P Relief Valve - Included.
  • Brass Drain Valve - Tamper proof design

PLEASE NOTE: The product weighs 120 lbs. and may require the use of a
lift gate.
If you do require a lift gate at your delivery, you'll have the option to add this FREE of charge when you checkout.

Top T&P Location saves on copper costs

By Bob in Phx.

from Phoenix, AZ

Verified Buyer

Comments about 40 Gallon - 40,000 BTU Defender Safety System Atmospheric Vent Energy Saver Residential Water Heater, w/ Optional Top T&P Location (Nat Gas):

Replacing a well used American heater with a top mounted T&P I did not find a model with a similar location except with the Bradford White as most are side mounts. Well without having to plumb a new run behind the heater with proper slope to connect into my existing wall connection this model reduced new copper pipe costs and TIME. BW also has a good reputation as being solid built at a comparable price to other heaters. [...]

Great appliance, perfect size

Comments about 40 Gallon - 40,000 BTU Defender Safety System Atmospheric Vent Energy Saver Residential Water Heater, w/ Optional Top T&P Location (Nat Gas):

I was looking for a replacement waterheater for my Rheem Fury. This one matched the dimensions that I needed and had good numbers for energy efficency, although not qualified as "energy star." It also has Magnesium Anode but not seperate hex head but as part of Hot Water Outlet. I am not sure if that is better or not. I had a plumber install it which took 1 hour and 15 minutes, since I had already turned off and drained the old water heater the night before (highly recommended). The drain has an odd handle and I am not sure how it works, although with the Hydrojet® Total Performance System - Cold water inlet sediment reducing device (Which is supposed to help prevent sediment build up in tank and increases first hour delivery of hot water while minimizing temperature build up in tank) it is not supposed to require routine draining to clear out sediment. We'll see.
Water is HOT! There is no vacation setting but lowest one works. Instructions are not clear on what temperature settings, "LOW", "HOT", "A," "B," and "C" and " "Very Hot" mean, but Hot is just that. I had to wait 4 months to get the top T&P Relief Valve since that is how my old one was installed.
I believe this one is better than those on sale at the box stores.
