Indirect Water Heater

Hello

Can anyone give me a a recommndation on an Indirect water heater. I was looking at a Burnham and a Weil Mclain since they fit into my budget. I know that the Mclain is stainless and the Burham is hydrastone lined. I also read about some issues on the McLain with the thermosat, but any adicse on either would be appreciated.

My fave is the Triangle Tube "tank in tank" design on their Smart series.

IMO the super stors are good.. Around $700 bucks and better suited BTU wise for faster recovery.... Better match to boiler BTU outputs.....

IMO they are considered throw aways. If it lasts 10-15 yrs you'll be ahead of the game....

I installed a 50 gallon burnham alliance tank bout a month ago. The stone lining adds some weight, but from my research, is the best bet against corrosion and the heat loss on the alliance is at or near the top depending on which size. Mine is hooked to an Alpine 80K and set for 150* storage with a mixing valve putting out 120-125*. multiple long hot showers while doing the dishes has yet to outrun the hot water. I would highly reccomend the burnham Alliance with the stone liner.

Yes I've been looking at the Alliance, looks like a nice water Heater. May take some effort to get it into the basement. Thank you for your input.

I'm pretty sure the Alliance would be my choice.
