Description for Bradford White MS65R6SS

The Solar Saver model is appropriate for open system applications, where water from a solar collector is pumped into the tank, directly heating the potable water (no internal heat exchange coil). For installation flexibility, alternate collector supply and return connections are provided on the 80 and 119-gallon models.


  • Backup Element - A single backup heating element provides heat only when solar energy does not satisfy demand.
  • 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.
  • Fully Automatic Controls - Fast acting surface-mount thermostat for automatic temperature control. Factory installed sensitive manual reset energy cutoff for safety to prevent overheating.
  • Supply and Return Connections - 3/4" NPT female connections are located on the top for both the solar collector supply and return.
  • Alternate Solar Collector Supply and Return Connections - Located on the front for additional application flexibility (MS80 and MS120 only).
  • 2" 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.
  • Potable Water Connections - 3/4" NPT factory installed true dielectric fittings extend water heater life and eases installation.
  • Sensor Wires for Solar Thermistor Connections - Twisted wires are provided as a means for connecting thermistors to a solar controller (thermistors and solar controller are not provided).
  • Protective Magnesium Anode Rod - Provide added protection against corrosion for long trouble-free service.
  • Direct Heat Transfer With Immersed Element - Transfers heat directly and efficiently to the water. Screw-in style.
  • T&P Relief Valve - Included.
  • Brass Drain Valve - Tamper proof design.
