Marathon® Water Heater
A CLOSER LOOK: MARATHON® ELECTRIC WATER HEATER
BEST CONSTRUCTION ~ 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.
BEST DURABILITY ~ 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 zero-to-150 psi.
BEST FUNCTIONALITY ~ 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 of bowl-shaped tank bottom, coupled with a brass drain valve at the very bottom of the tank provides for more complete draining.
BEST VALUE ~ 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.
BEST WARRANTY ~ 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 at your dealer for complete warranty information.)
HIGH EFFICIENCY ~ 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.
Marathon® Water Heaters purchased through Consumers Energy must be installed on our electric distribution system. Random inspections will occur on water heater installations.
