The MHD75245 Rheem Marathon water heater with a tank capacity of 75 gallons is a good choice for installations in homes with 3+ bathrooms or more than 4 family members. The MHD75245 Marathon water heater can deliver on average 78 gallons of hot water per hour (first hour rating).
Marathon water heaters are considered to be the best electric water heaters on the market. Marathon heaters carry a limited lifetime warranty against water heater leaks. All Rheem Marathon water heaters have a high efficiency design with a lightweight tank that cannot rust through or corrode. Marathon heaters are stronger and higher quality by virtue of being built without using steel or other metals. Rheem Marathon water heaters are made of cross-fiber polybutene. This material is ten times stronger than steel. Cold water heavily infused with minerals cannot damage this water heater tank’s strength. As a result Marathon water heaters last much longer than electric water heaters made of steel.
Marathon water heaters are built with one fused upper heating element made of copper to help protect against dry firing. The Marathon 75 gallon electric water heater’s lower heating element is made of titanium to provide resistance against lime and sediment build up. While slightly smaller, the MHD75245 Marathon water heaters can make a good replacement for standard 80 gallon electric water heaters.
