I saw the GSW one from Lowe's (my parents have a GSW rental through Direct Energy, so I'm assuming it would be a good product?)
Also, to contribute to this post - if you purchased a pre-construction home from the builder and they put in a Reliance tank (not sure about other companies), you are not obligated by any contract as long as you DO NOT pay the first bill (once you pay their first bill, you've sold your soul to the devil for the next gazillion years). You will still need to get the tank back to them by either dropoff or pickup, and I'm sure there is a fee if you request them to pick it up. But there's no contract termination penalty.
I'm closing a brand new house in less than a month, and will be replacing the tank as soon as I get the keys.
Yes, I heard about this. Can you actually post the fine print from your contact that says failure to pay bill is refusal of the hot water tank?reyoasian wrote: ↑Aug 23rd, 2017 9:39 amIf it is a pre-construction home from the builder, you are not locked-in whatsoever (as long as you do NOT pay the first bill).
You can have a new waterheater purchased from HD or something and have it installed, then return the Reliance tank (either yourself, or pay them maybe $200 to pick it up).
Direct Energy on the other hand, you're apparently stuck for at least 1 year, or in your contact, more.
