Water heaters infographic and linkMarathon® Water Heaters

When selecting a new water heater for your home, choose one that will not only provide enough hot water but also that will do so energy efficiently, saving you money. Check out the Energy Saver 101 infographic (image at the right is a link to an external website) located on the Department of Energy - Energy.gov website to learn more about the different types and features of water heaters. Electric water heaters have no flame, no carbon monoxide, no potential leaks in exhaust flues or fuel lines. With electric water heaters, you don't have to worry about unburned hydrocarbons in the air your family breathes.

No rust, no corrosion - EVER! Unique 2-ply design: A seamless, blow-molded polybutene inner tank wrapped in filament-wound fiberglass. Great for "brutal well water" conditions.

Toughest and strongest tank in the residential water heater industry. No one comes close. Marathon® tanks are regularly tested to withstand 100,000 cycles from 0-to-150 psi.

Beauty is more than skin deep. No anode rod means no rotten-egg smell from sulfates found in many water systems. Easy-on/easy-off water connections. Self-cleaning action bowl-shaped tank bottom, coupled with a brass drain valve at the very bottom of the tank provides for more complete draining.

Marathon's renowned durability eliminates the cost of buying and the cost of reinstalling a new water heater every 10 years (national average). This, coupled with energy savings, makes the total cost of ownership lower than typical water heaters.

Lifetime tank warranty* - the last water heater you'll need to buy for your home. If the tank fails, you get a new Marathon® with no "pro-rating" deductions. (*see warranty information sheet for complete warranty information.)

Save on your energy bill. 2.5 inches of foam insulation minimizes stand-by heat loss. No "heat-trap" fittings that can clog or chatter.
