Ecotone Products continues to observe a robust demand for Rheem Marathon water heaters due to their unique construction and durability. All Marathon water heaters are built by using cross-fiber polybutene, which creates a significantly stronger water heater tank than conventional steel tanks. Homeowners using well water as a water supply at home often have a strong preference towards Marathon water heaters. Normal water heater tanks may only last 5 years when exposed to water with high mineral content. The minerals often cause steel tanks to corrode at an accelerated pace. The non-metallic tank construction of Marathon water heaters makes the tank impervious to rust and corrosion. Rheem backs up the quality of the Rheem Marathon heaters by providing a limited lifetime warranty against leaking tanks.

All Marathon water heaters also feature upgraded titanium plated super-sized electric water heater elements. The titanium plating and the larger sized elements prolong the life-expectancy for Marathon water heaters. Titanium reacts at a much slower rate with minerals naturally occurring in the water supply than standard copper or steel elements. Similarly, the larger water heater elements allow for a less strenuous even transfer of heat between the heating elements and the water minimizing the wear and tear on the element.

Ecotone Products carries a wide selection of Marathon water heaters in stock. Factory trained Ecotone Products staff is available discuss your Rheem Marathon water heater needs via email and phone Monday through Friday, 7AM-5PM PST.
