    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.

    Bradford White....unless you know that you are going to be in the house the rest of your life then you might want to look a a 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.
