Marathon® 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 to learn more about the different types 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.

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 0-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 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 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.
