water heater

My electric water heater is leaking at the bottom and I'm going to replace it. The one I have is a Whirlpool 50 gal. and is 220 volt with 2- 4500 amp elements. I am looking for suggestions on a new one. Right now I am leaning towards a Rheem at Home Depot and that was made in the USA, which is a must. Is Rheem a good choice for $419 or does someone have a better idea? Thank you.

Bradford white best water heater hands down..

Tid bit..

Rheem water heater, which I install, to make it a 10 year heater we install an additional anode rod..

Bradford white to make it a 10 year we just by a sticker and slap in on the water heater..

Whats that tell you?

Plus in my old age I can lift the rheems up and down in my truck and on stands pretty good..

Brad whites are heavier..Whats that tell you?

But heck.. 400 bucks for a heater throw it in. If it lasts 6 years buy another..

furguson sells to the public..
