Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hopefully it lasts a lifetime Good so far. Seems like it's well built. Lots of insulation. I'll see how much my electric bill goes up in cost to run the unit

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Marathon 50 Set up was easy for my handyman husband, tank was light and manageable for even me to move. We had to turn it down twice, as the set up settings were way too hot. So far, so good, hopefully our 1st and last tank.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from LEAKING at First filling!! We bought the marathon 50G online because we live 2 hrs away from the store and it’s been delivered to our house with extra $. But when we first filled it with fresh water, it was leaking bad! We didn’t even start the breaker on this thing! And the service customer basically laugh at us, they told us to paid for the repairs. BRAND NEW, never been used and we have to travel 4 hrs today to bring this tank back. Buyer aware: Do not buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great so far I have had this installed for a month or two. It heats quickly. Seems to be insulated really well, as I can't feel any warmth on the outside of the unit. A few people have made complaints about leaking or elements burning out. I will have to see how it goes on that.

Is a 20 amp breaker sufficient for the 50 gallons tank

Asked by: Domard
It is not. After reviewing the specs, if still uncertain, it is best to consult an electrician.

Does this product (model # 595726/store sku # 1001070393) have a Thermally fused upper element for protections against dry fire and a Titanium lower element for resistance to lime build up? 

Asked by: Jeff
Hi Jeff, Thank you for your question. The upper element is thermally fused and does offer some protection against dry-firing. If you did happen to dry-fire your tank, the element may not fry as quickly, but there is no guarantee that dry-firing won't occur. The lower titanium element does offer superior resistance to lime build-up. Thank you, Rheem Canada

It is advertised as a 'Lifetime Warranty'... but in one of the product reviews it states that it has only a 6 year warranty... so my question is... Does it, or does it not have a Lifetime Warranty?  And what does Rheem consider a 'lifetime'?

Asked by: dahdudedahday
The Marathon has a lifetime warranty on the tank and 6 year warranty on the parts. You must be the original purchaser with the proof of purchase and have registered the tank within 90 days of the installation date. Thank you, Rheem Canada

Regular water heaters must be transported vertically to avoid breaking the anode. Since the Marathon water heater has no anode, can it then be transported horizontally?

Asked by: Don49
It is always recommended that the unit is transported upright (vertically) to prevent damage.

Does this model accept wifi control? Also, is there a LCD screen? How is the temperature adjusted?

Asked by: Catalin
No, Unfortunately this heater does not offer WIFI control and does not have LCD screen. On the inside of the upper and lower panels will be thermostats that you can use to adjust the temperature setting. You will need to make sure you set both of thermostats to the same temperature to ensure that the heater heats properly
