water heaters are they durable? Main The Durable Green Home
There are some really great technologies out there on water heaters these days, and one complaint that I have is that the new water heaters do no last. One reason is that people don't maintain them. Do you know you should flush the water heater every year? how many of us really do it? Still we see allot of water heaters with only 6 year warranties. Are there better options out there?

One option I have done a little research on and was actually in several trade magazines is the Marathon water heater by rheem. With a no leak for lifetime guarantee and envirofoam insulation  that is environmentally friendly as well as very efficient, this product could  change how some of us heat water. this tank has some of the best energy factors that I have found and are electric water heaters so you avoid the combustion gas problem that can exist with gas water heater. www.marathonheaters.com

another good option out there was featured in the environmental building news letter by www.buildinggreen.com is the Phoenix  solar tank. www.htproducts.com combines multiple features-including the integration of space and water heating in one package. With 97% efficiency using natural gas or propane this is one  of the higher efficiency models out there. Auxiliary heating hook  ups for heating coils can be used in forced air or radiant heating systems. and with a second heat exchanger in the tank for solar. So  one tank  can serve as the primary and the backup storage tanks for solar hot water systems. Go SOLAR!!

so some good options out there for durable water heaters and I even did not mention one of the best yet is the instant water heater option that Europe  and much of the work  has been using for many years now. so do your homework when looking into water heaters, just because the initial cost is cheap, find  out what the maintenance and replacement costs are that you will be paying when your cheap water heater is no good. What was that I heard awhile back about CHEAP homes? Oh the webs we weave!
