    Default Recommendation for gas water heater/reliable manufacturer list

    Hi,

    I see that Jake has posted a most/least reliable manufacture for appliance.

    Can the moderators and repair techs give us one for gas water heater? My old water heater is leaking and it is more than 10 years old.

    Thank you for your time.

    Thanks Jake.

    Do you know if Rheem from the HD is as good as ones from supply store? I plan to call Rheem and ask them the difference. I have read that the HD ones have plastic drain vs a brass drain from the supply store ones.

    I really appreciate your time and help.

    Home Depot should have the exact same Rheem as plumbing stores do.

    Either is fine.
