Comments about 40 Gallon - 40,000 BTU Defender Safety System PDX1 Power Direct Vent Energy Saver Residential Water Heater (Nat Gas):
great quality fast recovery time. power vent is not loud but you can hear it. I read that they have a stand or leg kit for this but i couldn't find it. if you decide to put a water catch pan under this you will have a problem with it hitting the pan unless you get an extremely large diameter pan. i had to put blocks under the heater to elevate it to clear the side of the pan. thats where a leg kit would solve that problem.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great water heater for negative pressure
from Mid-Atlantic Coast, USA
Comments about 40 Gallon - 38,000 BTU Defender Safety System PDX1 Power Direct Vent Energy Saver Residential Water Heater (LP Gas):
This is a fairly standard high efficiency power-vented storage water heater, but it uses a separate 2" PVC pipe to provide outside combustion air. It is completely sealed combustion, so it solves problems with negative pressure such as you commonly find in old or poorly insulated houses in wintertime. Because it is a storage water heater, it works fine on well water systems - unlike many tankless sealed combustion water heaters, which can't deal with the constantly varying pressure of a typical well pump + expansion tank system.I installed it in the basement of a 160+ year old house with strong negative pressure and a well system, and it is performing remarkably better than the previous two water heaters (a Bosch Aquastar and a power-vented Bradford-White without sealed combustion).I re-used the 3" PVC air intake and 3" stainless exhaust already plumbed through the wall for the Bosch unit that was being replaced, with 2"-to-3" PVC adapters to fit the 2" fittings on the new heater. I have not noticed any condensation from the drip line in the exhaust yet, but it hasn't been real cold so far this year. The PVC on the exhaust side does not get very hot to the touch.Note, the unit does not come with feet! I believe there is an accessory kit to provide feet but I used three large pavers. It's generally a good idea to keep water heaters up off the floor in basements, in case of laundry water, pipe leakage or stormwater problems that might occur in the future. If I had realized there were no feet I would have bought the accessory kit. My fault for not reading the description thoroughly enough.Bottom line, I recommend this water heater for negative pressure situations.
Great PEX Service - Lousy B-W QC !
from Urbana, OH
Product was DEAD On Arrival! Not the fault of PEX.Bradford-White had installed two Molex connectors in thew wrong positions, so the thermostat didn't turn on the unit (8-3 error code).Poor Quality Control - Unit would never had worked IF they tested it prior to shipment.They used identical connectors right next to each other, so they're easy to switch by mistake.I troubleshot the system and found the error by using the schematic and tracing the wires.Unit works fine now. Excellent heater when it's assembled correctly.Before I found the problem, PEX instantly offered to replace it at no charge! Great service.I WOULD recommend the heater IF you're ready to fix a DOA unit yourself,or accept a delay for replacement.
