  • Hydrastone-lining
    The concept of stone-lined water tanks is not a new one, and has been proving successful against corrosion for ages. Many of the stone-lined tanks are installed are 25-30 years old. In fact, the New England area has been using stone-lined tanks for years due to their water supply being very acidic and has been devastating to glass lined tanks.
    Br> What makes the Alliance SL unique is the Hydrastone-lining. This one half inch lining protects the steel tank from the corrosive action of water. When the water first enters the tank, it is absorbed into the Hydrastone-lining permanently. This water loses its oxygen and becomes inert, non-corrosive water which then acts as a protective wall between the hot water and steel tank. This unique process and design makes Alliance SL water heaters a great choice for domestic hot water applications.

PLEASE NOTE: The product weighs 266 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.

Ten-year warranty is hard to beat

By Doh

from Pine Hill, NY

Verified Buyer

Comments about AL35SL Alliance Hydrastone-Lined Indirect Water Heater:

We picked this hot-water heater because of its 10-year warranty and stone liner, which is supposed to guard against corrosive water. Our last tank, a Weil-McClain, rusted out after just 8 years. The new tank arrived on time, unblemished. The customer service at SupplyHouse was excellent. Our plumber installed the tank without incident. One downside: It's heavy as, well, stone. The tank weighs more than 300 pounds but our plumber still managed it by himself. Resourceful guy. Hopefully we'll never need to test the 10-year warranty. If we don't report back in a decade you can assume the tank is a winner.

Unit failed after 3 years!

Comments about AL35SL Alliance Hydrastone-Lined Indirect Water Heater:

This water heater started leaking after 3 years. This was noticed by the serviceman doing the routine annual service on my oil-burner. I called "Supply House" which looked me up in their computer, assured me the unit was under warrantee, and shipped a replacement within a few days. Thanks, guys!

Directly Happy

Comments about AL35SL Alliance Hydrastone-Lined Indirect Water Heater:

I did the installation myself - DIY baby. Very easy hook-up to a combi boiler with a Taco 3 zone controller. The stand alone tank is an improvement as in "no lag time" to get hot water to fixtures and no "cold water sandwiches."

I decided on this one as opposed to Triangle Tube and the Superstor, because of "no welds" through the tank.... a completely serviceable heat exchanger and no risk of corrosion at the welds - yes, those have leaked in spite of SS... see YouTube.

Only one con: Heavy.

First time customer for PexSupply

By Bob the builder

from Denver, Co

Comments about AL35SL Alliance Hydrastone-Lined Indirect Water Heater:

Unit works perfectly. Plenty of hot water for the two of us and have not run out. Outside unit stays cool, so standby loss very minimal. Compact. Easy to plumb. Electrical instructions very lacking. When combing with different manufacturers to create hvac unit creates real problems, Taco controler, Dunkirk boiler, Honeywell & Taco zone valves, both fin and tube baseboard heat, radiant floor, inline Taco circulator, ended up getting engineer assistance. Wiring not even close to instructions but I guess not their fault. PexSupply-very satisfied. Shipped on time but when dealing with freight transport-be patient. Plus snow storm during shipping. Arrived in perfect shape. Well wrapped. Heavy duty pallet. Need lift gate for delivery!

Works great.

Comments about AL35SL Alliance Hydrastone-Lined Indirect Water Heater:

Other than being heavy, easy to install if you don't mind a bit of plumbing. It seems to do a pretty good job of holding the heat when not being used.

  • AL35SL Alliance Hydrastone-Lined Indirect Water Heater

    Q:

    The overview specs indicate that the minimum boiler output to use any of the alliance heaters is 99000 BTU. Does this truly mean that none of them could be used with a smaller output boiler or does the hot water capacity just get reduced proportional to the smaller size. For example my boiler output is 45000 BTU so 45/99 =.45 when applied to the first hour rating this would be 87 instead of 192, the next hours would drop to 73. Is this how it works?

      A:

      The boiler output listed is the minimum required to achieve the full ratings given in the specification. Smaller boilers provide smaller output, though it may not be exactly proportional.

      The water in indirect water heaters is heater by the boiler to which the indirect is connected, whether it is a gas, oil, or electric boiler.

      A:

      This unit should be big enough. It does prioritize, so the boiler size would not be affected.

    What is the energy factor on this product?

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      The energy factor of this product relates directly to that of the boiler it is connected to. The indirect itself does not carry a rating.

    I have a 650sq.ft. garage. What complete package would you recomend for this application. I read in DIY magazine that that you can use a common hot water tank?

      A:

      This unit is an indirect water heater and does not make hot water. An indirect water heater is used in conjunction with a boiler for domestic hot water.

  • AL35SL Alliance Hydrastone-Lined Indirect Water Heater

    Q:

    Do i need a circulater pump when using with a boiler? If i do what size circulater pump do in need? What is the cost of the additional parts to connect the tank to a boiler. I would be using a gas fired steam boiler with internal coil to feed hot water to the tank. I am split between installing a seperate gas fired hot water tank or going indirect. I believe indirect is more efficant. I have a four bedroom,two full bath house with 4 occupents.
    Thanks

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Yes, you would need a circulator pump when using this water heater. We would recommend the Taco 007 (SKU: 007-SF5) as well as a set of flanges which are sized based off of the line you are running through the system.
