Time for a new unit- recommendations?

3 posts in this topic

It is now time for a new electric water heater.

previous, now ruptured, unit was an American Standard 50 Gal from the 1997 era.

I am starting the search for a new unit, and was wondering if you ladies and gentlemen had a preferred brand/model.
