    There are several notes in a couple of threads that strongly recommend Bradford-White as "the brand" to get for gas water heaters.

    Is that also true for electric units? If not, what are the best brands for a new electric water heater? A friend recommended either Rheem or Bradford-White; a neighbor said an American Premier Plus was best.

    Just curious what the pros here recommend.

    Marathon?

    Use a Marathon if you want a plastic water heater in your house. They are lifetime, but that just means when it starts leaking you get to pay for the installation of a new tank. It does not mean they will last for a lifetime.
