The Benefits of a Rheem Marathon Water Heater

Replacing your water heater?

Rheem Marathon electric water heater is durable, lightweight and non-metallic. It does NOT require an anode rod. With a seamless blow-molded polybutene inner tank, it is impervious to rust and corrosion. The tough molded polythylene outer shell resists dents, scratches and salt air.
No anode rod means no smelly water, normally caused by chemical reactions with sulfates.
Its lifetime warranty means the tank is built to last for as long as you own your home. Marathon saves you money with its lightweight design, high efficiency and warranty -- a hands down favorite of homeowners who are looking for a lifetime of savings and reliability.

Can you answer "Yes" to the following?

  • Do you want this to be the last water heater you will have to purchase for your home?
  • Do you want to save money on your energy bill?
  • Do you need to eliminate a rotten-egg smell that's caused by typical anode rod interaction with sulfates found in your water system?

    I had Rapid Service come to my home because there was a saddle valve under my kitchen sink that was about to make a huge mess. I wasn't able to use my filtered water faucet until the repair was made. The technician fixed it AND had a great attitude while he worked. That is a rare thing lately...
