Benefits

DOUBLE GLASS-LINED INNER TANK
A double coating of a uniquely formulated blue cobalt glass enriched with zircon is fused to specially treated steel at 1,600°F (871°C) to provide the best coating available against corrosion for many years. The tank is certified at a test pressure of 300 PSI (2,068 kPa) and a working pressure of 150 PSI (1,034 kPa).

MEDIUM DENSITY SCREW-IN TYPE ELECTRIC ELEMENTS
This model is equipped with medium density CSA approved screw-in type immersion elements made by Giant.

INSULATION
A two (2) inch (5 cm) thick uniform blanket of GREENFOAM® ecofriendly insulation keeps the water hotter for longer periods, reduces stand-by losses and energy costs. GREENFOAM® contains no HCFC’S (hydrochlorofluorocarbons), CFC’S (chlorofluorocarbons) nor VOC’s (volatile organic compounds).

FACTORY INSTALLED 3/4” NPT DI-ELECTRIC NIPPLES
Extend the life of the water heater by providing excellent corrosion protection.

FACTORY INSTALLED HEAT TRAPS
Helps reduce the migration of hot water, thus limiting heat loss escaping through inlet and outlet fittings.

FACTORY INSTALLED TEMPERATURE & PRESSURE-RELIEF VALVE
This valve will protect the tank from the damaging effects of excessive temperature
and pressure.

HIGH QUALITY MAGNESIUM ANODE
Provides excellent protection against the corrosive effects of water and extends tank life.

OVERFLOW SYSTEM
A 90° elbow overflow tube is supplied with each residential electric water heater.

BRASS DRAIN VALVE
A high quality and tamper resistant one-piece brass drain valve is installed for easy drainage.

AUTOMATIC TEMPERATURE CONTROL
Adjustable thermostats will provide years of reliable trouble-free service at the desired water temperature and a safety cut-off is provided for abnormal conditions.
